“In the last week of April the Turkish hotels give significant discounts for accommodation during May holidays. The volume of transportation is enough and those, who still wish to buy a tour, may do it for very cheap price”, - market participants say. The information, that from the third week of April the Turkish hotels widely give special offers for May holidays, was confirmed at once by several sources on the market. Some experts connect this with the desire of Turkish hoteliers to mitigate the negative effect of falling sales after the appearance of information about a possible ban of charter flights. The tour operators, interviewed by "ATOR News", agreed with the fact, that good sales of Turkey for May holidays are stimulated by additional special offers from the hoteliers of this country. "At this moment we receive additional special offers from Turkish hotels for May holidays and until the middle of May. The discount amounts about 10-15%. Thus, our customers have an opportunity to buy tours by more attractive prices "- says Marina Makarkova Director of public relations of the tour operator CoralTravel. The company Pegas Touristik said that the volume of sales of Turkey for these May holidays increased significantly against 2015. The General Director of the tour operator Anna Podgornaya said, that there are a lot of special offers on the market for May holiday from different Turkish hotels, but stresses that the prices for air tickets do not decrease.
