Demand of tours to Turkey for a non-working week has increased
On October 20, Russian President Vladimir Putin, declared non-working days in the country from October 30 to November 7, due to the situation with the spread of coronavirus infection.
Representatives of the tour operators said that, after President Vladimir Putin announced a non-working week in November, sales of tours to Turkey and Egypt have grown by 30 - 35%.
In addition, Tez Tour operator expects that by the end of October, the demand for tours to Turkey will increase by more than 300%.
Dmitry Gorin, vice president of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia, noted that Russian citizens began booking tours for November even before the announcement of the President. This is due to the fact that school holidays are expected in November. However, a surge in interest in traveling abroad was caused by the signing of a corresponding decree by the authorities.
The expert said that the demand for travel to the United Arab Emirates and the Dominican Republic increased by 15-20%. He also noted that purchasing a package tour, the trip will cost travelers much less than buying tickets on their own. Thus, the cost of tours to Egypt will start from 465 – 485 Euros per person. A voucher with accommodation can be purchased for 970 -1 100 Euros for two persons.
