Tour operators reacted by lowering prices to the decline in the interest of Russian travelers to the resorts of Egypt. If back in September the price tag for tours was expressed in 6-digit ruble amounts, now there are many offers up to 100,000 rubles. This will require a finely defined filter, for example, “play” with dates. The details were reported by a Russian woman in her Yandex.Zen blog.
As explained by a compatriot who tracks the cost of package tours to Egypt, until some time, “the price tag started at 120-130 thousand rubles, even in the most” lame “hotels.” “Now there are quite a lot of tours at a price of 80,000 per week – for example, in Falcony (simple hotels, but quite adequate for their price). Coral offers “Fortuna” (a system where the tour operator selects a hotel for tourists) for a “three-ruble note” for 80,000 rubles, 87,600 for a “four” and 90,750 rubles for a “five”. But, of course, the price tag depends on the dates. Adequate prices are available until the beginning of November and after November 20. But from the first to November 15 – a real “black hole” with an inadequate price list, because at that time the Climate Conference will be held in Sharm el-Sheikh, for which they are now actively preparing,” she said.
Let's give a travel agent's offer to a Russian woman for a vacation in Egypt with departures in November dates. The price is per person based on double occupancy:
- Flight from Stavropol to Sharm el-Sheikh/Hadaba on November 22 for 7 nights at the 3-star Falcon Hills Hotel with half board will cost 49'007 rubles.
- Flight from Stavropol to Sharm el-Sheikh/Hadaba on November 22 for 7 nights at the 4-star Sharming Inn Hotel with all-inclusive meals will cost 52'377 rubles.
- Departure from Stavropol to Sharm el-Sheikh/Naama Bay on November 22 for 7 nights at the 3-star Falcon Naama Star Hotel with half board meals will cost 49’155 rubles.
“At present, it is very budgetary. It is obvious that with double occupancy per person it will be even cheaper, ”the author suggested.
The cost of rest has also fallen sharply in the resorts of Turkey, so those who have not paid for the trip so far have not overpaid. For comparison, the blogger gave an example of the difference in the price of a tour with accommodation in the same hotel: “… we paid 165,000 rubles, and now the same hotel costs 109,000 rubles on the same dates. Some wanted to make a knight's move – to cancel the ticket and book the tour again, but tour operators do not cancel the reservation without fines.
Recall that Russian tourists can fly to Egypt, including resorts, not only from Moscow, but also from regional cities: Vladikavkaz, Yekaterinburg, Makhachkala, Minvod, Novosibirsk, Samara, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Stavropol, Ufa.
