The most popular countries for summer holidays in 2022 are Turkey and the Schengen countries. In the third place in popularity are domestic tours in Russia. Such data was provided by AlfaStrakhovanie insurance company. Among the popular destinations are Israel and Georgia, as well as the United Arab Emirates and Abkhazia.
The average duration of a trip compared to last year, despite the current restrictions, has not changed much and is 20 days. Russian tourists prefer to stay in Turkey two weeks, in the Schengen countries (average duration - 21 days), Greece (23 days), Spain and France (19 days).
Most Russians (34%) book a tour literally a day before departure. Obviously, this is due to the possible cancellations and rescheduling of flights. A similar situation was observed during the pandemic, when severe restrictions on movement and increased requirements for vaccination certificates and PCR tests were in effect around the world. For example, in 2021, the number of bookings a day before departure was 32%.
