Hotel prices in Turkey in the next summer season may jump by 200%. Such shocking information was presented by experts in the Turkish media. However, they reassured tourists – this is just one of the “polar values” in the reactions of Turkish hoteliers to increased costs. That is, there are hotels that really raised prices by 100-200%, but there are also those that did not change them at all. However, the “average temperature in the hospital” does not look very happy for tourists – on average, prices will increase by at least 60-70%, Turkish experts noted. However, we are talking about domestic tourism, Russian tour operators give a slightly different picture.
The reason for the increase in prices, which was named by hoteliers, is expected – the economic crisis and seriously increased costs due to an increase in the cost of energy, labor and almost all the necessary resources for the operation of the hotel. According to Oya Narin, president of the Turkish Tourism Investor Association (TTYD), all these costs will inevitably be reflected in room prices in 2023. “For domestic tourists, the average increase in prices was 60-70% in Turkish Lira. Prices will rise slightly higher in the upper segment.”
As Ulkay Atmaja, president of the Association of Professional Hotel Managers, added, the rate of price increase varies from institution to institution. “There are hotels that raise the price by 200%, by 100%. On the other hand, there are those who do not make any increases,” he said.

The reason for this is, firstly, the good results of the 2022 season, where the “failure” on the part of Ukraine and, to a lesser extent, Russia was compensated by the Europeans, giving the Turks hope that tourists would come anyway. Secondly, the economic crisis, the rise in prices for everything, which “ate” a lot of profits from the loading of 2022 due to record inflation. All this caused an increase in contract prices for the summer of 2023 by an average of 30%. However, while tourists have a chance to go on vacation at prices at least last year.
