Tour operators are trying to offer early booking for the winter
This week, despite the non-working regime throughout the country, retail received messages from Russian tour operators with announcements of early booking for the autumn-winter period of 2021. Among the first is Pegas tour operator, it offers Thailand and Vietnam. Tui Russia offers all its product line. Anex Tour focuses on winter Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic and Sri Lanka. Earlier Intourist attracted attention of travel agencies to its tours.
Retail market experts explain such increased marketing activity of suppliers by their desire to “maintain the fire of life” of their own companies and “not to drop the number of bookings to zero level”. But how good these proposals will be claimed by agents is difficult to predict.
