The majority of Russian travel agents in the development of domestic tourism is hindered by the lack of knowledge about the real possibilities of domestic resorts. So something with the portal of the Association of tour operators of Russia has shared the General Director of tour operator “Dolphin” Sergey Romashkin.
“Many agents of the Russian resorts associated with low service and high price tag, but this is nothing more than a horror story”, — he dispelled one of the popular myths about rest in Russia. According to Romashkina, the country is quite a decent resort base, and to attract necessary tourists accustomed to plan a vacation yourself.
Top Manager also noted that, for example, package tour in Sochi can be purchased for 35 thousand rubles for two — the price tag, he said, is able to attract and those who “hadn’t thought about an organized trip to Sochi.”
In addition, according to him, in the current season domestic resorts is loose enough, as the number of tourists compared to last year will likely decrease.
June 3, Vice-President of the Russian Union of travel industry Yuri Barzykin has suggested that the cost of holidays at Russian resorts will not rise after the pandemic coronavirus and will remain at last year’s level. He also believes that in the coming tourist season, tourists will be 30-40 percent less than usual.
