An unpleasant surprise awaits Russian tourists in Turkey

Seasonal discounts for the “velvet season” in Turkey can not be expected. At the same time, the rise in price in the direction exceeds the average. Such an unpleasant surprise for Russian tourists was presented by Kommersant, referring to the figures of tour sales services.

On average, according to, the average check for tours abroad for the velvet season has increased by almost half compared to last year , more precisely by 49.6%, and amounted to 166 thousand rubles. At the same time, the figures for Turkey exceed this indicator – the average cost of a tour to this country, the most popular among our tourists, has grown by 61.6% over the year, to 170 thousand rubles. However, Turkey accounts for 65% of all bookings.

Experts also warn that there is no need to wait for discounts for the velvet season in Turkey. Typically, prices for autumn holidays decreased by about 10-15%. However, all the actual reasons for the rise in prices – high demand, multiplied by the problems of air transportation and rising fuel prices – will remain in the velvet season, Kommersant experts comment.

However, we recall that according to the information of ATOR experts, the “pre-September pause” associated with the departure of parents with school-age children at the resorts remained unchanged. As a result, affordable tours to Turkey again appeared in the assortment of tour operators – at a price 50% lower than in mid-August. Read the details at this link.
