ANEX Tour overpasses from dollar to euro in Turkey
ANEX Tour operator will transfer payments to Turkish partners in Euros. This was announced on Monday, October 1, by Yana Muromova, the deputy general director of the company. “Turkish hoteliers work with all markets in Euros. And for the Russian partners recalculate prices in dollars and at an unprofitable rate. Then the dollars are still converted into rubles. It turns out double conversion, which is why the difference in the final price grows by a few percent”, she explained. According to Yana Muromova, the tour operator in nearest future will introduce a new principle of mutual settlements with Turkish hoteliers. ANEX Tour expects that this step will reduce the final cost of the tourist product for Russian consumer by 3-5%. It is noted, that Turkish hoteliers, in the framework of contracting, traditionally offer different conditions for different markets. So, prices for European partners can be more profitable, regardless of exchange rates. “We are working to equalize these tariffs”, add the representative of ANEX Tour. Observers pay attention to the fact that the demand has great importance for the conditions of cooperation between Turkish hoteliers and Russian tour operators. The more it is, the higher the tariffs. This trend was clearly seen in 2017, when local business was trying to restore the Russian tourist flow after the return of the charter flights.
