Russians To Spend 10% More on Summer Travel

15 August 2019 (09:15)

UrBC, Moscow, August 15, 2019. The price of a summer vacation rose by 9% to 10% for Russian travelers this year compared with one year earlier, TASS refers to Executive Director at Russia’s Tour Operators Association (ATOR) Maya Lomidze as stating.

‘The prices didn’t rise very much against last year: the increase in the market’s average was about 9-10%, for every summer destination,’ Lomidze says.

According to Lomidze, certain locations — Turkey, Krasnodar Territory resorts, Cyprus, and Bulgaria — actually cost less to travel to this August, despite the peak season.

The ATOR also points to the continuing customer migration from the medium-range price segment into the on-a-budget one. People also tend to save money by buying an 8-10 day tour rather than a 14-day one, booking fewer guided tours and overwhelmingly choosing all-inclusive accommodation options over all the over ones, Lomidze says.
