The Greater Middle East (, - In Russia, the popularity of domestic tourism has noticeably increased over the past few years, but according to a study by Travelata experts, Turkey remains the leader. Russians aspire to this country, despite the double increase in prices for tours (compared to 2021). This is reported by RIA Novosti, which has studied the results of the sale of tours for spring and summer.

“The Russians are taking places on Turkish beaches. Sales of tours in this direction began to grow already in March, although warmer countries are usually the leaders at this time: Egypt, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates, ”experts are sure.

Moreover, the Russians are trying to “lay straws” on the beach in advance and are already buying up tours until September 2023.

“At the moment, Turkey (in the Travelata sales segment - ed.) ranks first in terms of the number of bookings - 23% in the first two weeks of March. The depth of booking has tripled compared to 2021. This means that travelers decide to buy much earlier. Moreover, the prices for trips in this direction have more than doubled compared to 2021, but this does not stop tourists, ”the analysts add. recalls that the average ticket for a trip to Turkey from Russia has increased from 65,000 rubles to 140,000 over the past year.
