The interest of Russian tourists in winter holiday destinations has changed dramatically. According to the latest data received, the Russians will spend the New Year holidays in Turkey, although Egypt was traditionally a massive budget winter destination with a warm sea and sunny weather for Russians for the New Year.
Now everything has changed, Egypt is losing ground in New Year's preferences, it has been replaced by Turkey, Turkish tourism media reported. Despite the rise in prices in Russia up to 70 percent, the demand for New Year's tours is higher than last year's. Thus, the data of the tour operator TEZ Tour showed that this year the demand for package tours at the beginning of the year increased by 30%.
At the same time, according to Intourist, the first 27.5% of sales fall on domestic trips . In second place is Turkey with 26% of bookings. It is followed by Egypt, Abkhazia and Venezuela with figures ranging from 12% to 15%.
The tour operator ANEX Tour also announced that Turkey and the United Arab Emirates in their company took first place in sales of tours abroad.
< p>As a price guide, let's add that the cost of a weekly vacation in a 4- or 5-star hotel ranges from 165,000 to 451,000 rubles. Travel agencies offer the most expensive tours to the Maldives, and the cheapest ones to Turkey. Note that in last year's tourist demand for New Year's holidays, the Dominican Republic was also in the top three. The Caribbean country took the honorable 3rd place in the ranking of tour operators Coral Travel, PEGAS Touristik, ANEX Tour in terms of sales. The drop in demand this year is explained by the fact that direct charter flights with Russia were canceled from the schedule in February.
