Tourists from India started more likely booking budjet tours in Russia
Poor tourists from India started more likely booking trips to Russia, the publication of The Economic Times stated.
The growth of popularity of Russian destination among the poorer people in India contributed to the fall of the ruble against the dollar and the rupee.
For example, residents of the country booked three-day tours to Moscow, which include flights, accommodation in a 4-star hotel and visa fees for just $ 600.
"Previously, only the VIP-clients could afford a trip to Russia, because it was very expensive. Now we are increasing the number of mass tourists and exchange rate helps us in this.", the edition quotes the words of the director of Delmos Aviation Charu Makina.
