An update from Evaneos

In Oman, accommodation is dear but everyday living is cheap

Apart from transport and food, you will notice during your trip to Oman that prices are the same as in Europe.

Expensive accommodation and cheap day-to-day living

One thing is certain - and you won't take long to notice it during your trip to Oman - on-site prices are more or less equivalent to those already in place in Europe.

This is especially true with regard to accommodation. Whether it fits the category of budget, mid-range or the most luxurious establishments, you'll have to pay the same amount as in France, Italy or England. Accommodation is bound to be your most significant expense. On the other hand, you'll have no problem with the reception and level of comfort, which are entirely acceptable.

It's another thing altogether the moment you settle down at the table to satisfy your hunger. In little stalls and popular little restaurants, you will taste delicious local cuisine, often Indian-influenced, for next to nothing. If you're looking for something more upmarket, you'll still always find the restaurants cheap. The prices align with those of Europe in the best establishments.

Transport is also very economical.

In Oman

A few prices

For one night in a double room for two people, you won't find anything below 25 OMR (€50). The level of comfort is decent enough but for something a little more appealing you can expect to be charged between 30 and 45 OMR (£50 to £75). The most attractive hotels are available for between 45 and 100 OMR (£75 to £170).

For a distinctive and authentic dining experience in Oman, you'll find popular little restaurants where you can quell your appetite for between 1,50 and 3,50 OMR (£2 to £5). In a more classic style of restaurant you will sample Indian spices for anything ranging from 5 to 10 OMR (£8 to £18). You can take a seat in the best restaurants in the country and pay between 12,50 and 25 OMR (£20 to £40) for one dish.
