The Russian Union of Travel Industry (PCT) told what destinations Russians choose for holidays during the February holidays.
The first place in popularity is occupied by the coastal regions of the Krasnodar Territory and the mountain cluster of Krasnaya Polyana. The cost of tours to Krasnaya Polyana starts from 50-60 thousand rubles, including flights. In second place are excursion tours to St. Petersburg with a minimum cost of about 20 thousand rubles per person with a road.
Russians also choose to rest in the sanatoriums of the Caucasian Mineral Waters, but in this direction they buy vouchers for 10-12 days, combining the February holidays with vacations or time off. The cost of such a trip with a flight starts from 70-80 thousand rubles.
It is expected that sales of holidays in suburban hotels in the Moscow region will soon begin to grow. Usually, demand begins no earlier than 10-15 days before the start of the holiday.
“Tour operators note that this year the top five did not include Crimea, which had always been a leader in sales. Some companies have Gelendzhik and Moscow in the top 5. Ski tours to Arkhyz, Dombay, Elbrus region, Sheregesh, excursion programs to Tatarstan are also popular. Most tourists go on vacation in companies or families of 3-4 people”, Interfax reports a PCT message.
