As noted by experts, Russians don’t need in the near future expect discounts on domestic resorts, since they are so “retained a stable demand.” However, the best deals may appear at the end of August, some time after the opening of the popular tourist destination of Turkey and possibly Abkhazia.

The possible decrease in the completion time of the season — the second half of September and early October,” said Director of marketing network of travel agencies “1001 tour” Maria Leshcheva, adding that has not yet received special offers from the hotels.
In turn, representatives of the tour operator ANEXTour noted that discounts on accommodation in high-level hotels in the South of Russia is not worth waiting — room there has “virtually no presence”. “They’re all booked until the autumn and a large part is in the stop sale (termination of reception in connection with a full load — approx. “Of the tape.ru”), “—said the press service of the company.
