Russian tourists are changing their mind about summer holidays. We used to consider July and August the highest points of summer, but now the high request is stable from May to October. That was the topic of experts’ conversations during the business program of traditional Coral Travel autumn award event-Starway 2019.
“That is the tendency of several last years. Tourists are very active in May-June and then in September-October. The reason is high prices in July and August. As TO we are taking into consideration such tendency while early booking action,”-commented Ercüment Ünalan Coral Travel commercial director.
“We Include October to summer season now. As for me, September and October are the best time for relaxation near the sea when the water is warm, the temperature is hot very high and children are at schools. This season all the hotels are fully booked till 20.10.19. Only after this date the number of tourists starts to decrease. But if the weather will be warm enough the end of this month and the beginning of November may attract tourists again,”-said Osman Aidyn marketing and sales manager of OTIUM hotels.
Royal Flight air company general director Besiki Kvirkviya marked that such rearrangement of passengers’ flow from July and August to the other months make the work of all tourist market workers more uniform. And that is another opportunity to develop this industry and to increase the quality of the final product.
