Over 50% of Russians Might Cancel International Trips if Euro Costs Over RUR 80

UrBC, Moscow, August 22, 2018. 57% of Russians who took part in tutu.ru’s recent survey say they would be willing to cancel their international trips if the EUR/RUR exchange rate rose to more than RUR 80 to RUR 90 per ˆ1, the travel service tutu.ru reports.

‘We conducted a survey after the currency exchange rate started fluctuating to see what changes would make our travelers reconsider going abroad. 4,300 respondents shared their opinions on August 13-20. It turns out that the EUR/RUR exchange rate of 1/80 is the ‘psychological benchmark’ that would be decisive in this respect,’ the company’s press service says.

16% of those surveyed said they would feel intimidated by the 1/90-100 ratio, and 9% of respondents said they would cancel their trip if the euro came to cost RUR 120 or more. Under a quarter of those surveyed (18%) admitted to not being ready to cancel their vacations under whatever circumstances.

Now the official EUR/RUR exchange rate came to 1/77.35 on August 22, 2018.
