Sales of tours as part of the autumn stage of the tourist cashback program started on August 25th. In the first days, about 100 thousand people used the program.
“People have purchased tours and booked hotels for more than 2.5 billion rubles. Cashback (the amount that is directly returned to the cards to tourists) amounted to about 500 million rubles. Sales from tour operators have grown up to 2.5 times compared to ordinary days,”, Zarina Doguzova, head of Rostourism, wrote on her Telegram channel.
The head of the department stressed that tourists book like a velvet season, and ski holidays in November-December – for example, Sheregesh. Resorts and cruises are popular.
Among the destinations that are mainly of interest to Russians:
- Krasnodar Territory;
- Moscow Region;
Sales of tours will last until September 10th. If the amount planned for cashback (3 billion rubles) is chosen by tourists earlier, sales will be stopped ahead of schedule.
