Tours for Russians rose by 80%
Prices for tours to countries still open to Russians have risen sharply due to the weakening ruble against the dollar and the euro.

Holidays in 4 and 5* hotels with the all-inclusive system in Turkey now cost from 77 thousand rubles and from 180 thousand rubles, respectively.
"A tour to Egypt with accommodation in a 3* hotel at the end of February could be bought for 81 thousand rubles for two, and in the coming days, it costs from 134 thousand rubles for two. The price increase was 65%," the association added.
