OREANDA-NEWS. Russian tour operators predict an increase in prices for domestic holidays in the summer of 2022 by 10-30%. This was reported to Interfax by participants in the tourism market.

“We predict an increase in the cost of tours by 10-20%, some players expect an increase of 30%. So far, we do not see an increase in the cost, although there are hotels that are already sending us information about this, ”said Margarita Nazarova, deputy general director of the Multitour tour operator.

According to her, many are now waiting, and if prices continue to rise, then hoteliers will raise the cost. Therefore, it is best to book a summer vacation now, when there are still discounts or promotions.

Most market participants agreed that summer Russian tours will rise in price, while the demand for bookings in February decreased by an average of 50%. And if there is a high demand in conjunction with food inflation, the increase in the cost of vouchers will be at least 30%.

Therefore, in order to develop domestic tourism in a crisis, it is best to increase the number of rooms, including with the help of glamping sites, which are being built quickly. It is also necessary to train qualified personnel and improve the quality of service.
