Tour operators have opened sales of ski tours for the next season unusually early
“Sales of ski tours for the season 2018/2019 began this year unusually early - already in April”, said the PR-director of Tez Tour operator Larisa Akhanova. "For the first time sales of ski tours starts in April. Ski tourists are the most disciplined and prudent customers, for them the priority is the price and the precise planning of the spending for the rest. Early discounts for early bookings reach 20% and tourists understand the benefits and so decide to buy tours in advance", - she noted. According to L. Akhanova, the average check of the ski tour increased from 400 to 700 Euros per person. "At the same time the New Year period is not the peak of the winter season, the demand is equidistributed over the all season from December to March”, - she noted. L. Akhanova said that in the new winter season the tour operator will offer its own flight program to such directions as Andorra, Austria, Bulgaria and Italy. It starts on December 29 and will last until March 16. Alpine skiers will be able to visit Austrian resorts - Nasfeld, Bad Kleinkirchheim, Kutchberg and Heiligenblut in Carinthia. The resorts of East Tyrol will be an absolute novelty, where there is a unique ski pass for any slope which allows you to rest in the whole region. According to L. Akhanova, Austria will be the favorite resort of the next winter season, since the country is "well known to Russian tourist and price range there is democratic".
