Mass bookings of “warm and cheap” countries for the winter began in Germany. Tours are mostly booked by German pensioners, whose main goal is to save on heating their own houses and apartments in the face of wildly rising gas and other energy prices.
Mostly German tourists plan to warm themselves in winter and save money in countries such as Turkey , Tunisia, Egypt and the Canary Islands. Some can also afford Thailand, Cape Verde and the Caribbean, although due to expensive jet fuel, tickets there are now far from affordable for all Europeans.
“Our pensioners go to warm countries in the winter, because it will cost them less than heating a home or, moreover, getting sick at home. The reason is the high prices for natural gas,” a representative of the association of pensioners explained to the German media. He noted that we are talking about cheap long-term tours.
As one of the pensioners who bought such a tour explained, natural gas bills, which are usually 200 euros, will increase to 600 euros this year, which they simply cannot affordably. They estimate that by going to Tunisia on “all inclusive” they can save about 300 euros per month.
