The e-mail of Russian travel agents is literally filled with messages from Anex Tour about the opening of sales of tours to Turkey for the summer, 2021.
Prior to this, tour operators informed their retail partners mainly about the impossibility of fulfilling obligations. Therefore, the high marketing activity of Anex Tour surprised the agents and interested the hotel business in Turkey.
Representatives of the local Turkish market are sure: the declared prices for tours in 2021 are either equal to or even higher than those offered by Anex Tour during early booking programs. In addition, they doubted that the tour operator's pricing is based on the contractual conditions of Turkish hotels.
The deputy director of the tour operator Yana Muromova commented on the situation. We made a choice of the simple way and calculated the prices based on the contracts of 2020. And after that we will confirm these prices with partners. If we get prices even lower, we will drop them with pleasure. Our main goal is that the cost of package tours to Turkey for 2021 should not exceed the prices that were set for this summer. ”
