The rise in prices for holidays in Turkey has increased interest for tours to the UAE, Egypt and Tunisia
Some tourists are reoriented from Turkey to Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and even Tunisia. This is due to high prices. Not everyone is ready to pay $ 2 500 - $ 3 850 for 7 nights at those Turkish hotels that used to cost 1,5–2 times cheaper.
As Andrey Gridnev (CEO of Last-minute tours, Moscow) said, about 30% of his clients choose other destinations, taking into account comparable prices.
A tour to the UAE for two persons for 7 nights with a departure on June 5 from Moscow to 4-star Mirage Bab Al Bahr Beach Resort in Fujairah costs $ 2 100. For a similar tour to Marjan Island Resort & Spa 5*, AI in Ras al-Khaimah, tourists need to pay almost $ 2 015.
Also, some tourists choose Egypt instead of Turkey. For example, 7 nights at Albatros Palace Sharm El Sheikh 5*, AI with a flight from Moscow on June 14 will cost $ 2 470. Holidays at Tunisian Barcelo Concorde Green Park Palace 5*, AI costs from $ 2 090 for two persons with a departure on June 7.
For comparison: 7 nights at Antalya Swandor Hotels & Resorts Topkapi Palace 5*, AI with a departure on June 5 for two persons cost from $ 2 820.
The experts note that there are no alternatives for Turkey with such number of hotels and quality of service.
