This autumn the operators notice the absence of negative growth dynamics and even the growth of the New Year sales. It will be remembered that in October of the last year, the fall in this segment amounted 20-30%, compared with the same month of 2014.
The executive director of "Vand Travel" Tatyana Vanda sure, that the sales picture will clear up before the end of October, but September has already shown: the Ney Year tours are asking more active than last September. The tourists are booking the guided tours, and the Ney Year demand is much more than at the beginning of January. The good demand is for long destinations, such as Mexico, Cuba, India, China and Vietnam. But as for traditional destinations for the New Year - Prague and Paris - are not booked. "The prices have not changed, the clients primarily take the 10 days trips, mainly from December 29-30 and January 8-9, it have no sense to fly far away for a shorter period", - added Ms. Vanda.
The PR-director of the company "Tez Tour" Larissa Akhanova called the leaders of the New Year demand - Andorra, Austria, Bulgaria, United Arab Emirates, Tenerife, Dominican Republic, Thailand and Cuba. The stable dynamics are also noticed among the Eastern European capitals - Riga, Vilnius, Prague, Budapest, Tallinn.
The demand for a ski winter holiday’s dates shifted to the second half of the January holidays. "Ski resorts are practically sold out" - she precised.
