Bulgaria is the cheapest holiday destination for Russians
Bulgaria and Greece are the cheapest summer holiday options for Russians, said Tuesday Alexander Tugolukov, Executive Director of the Biblio Globus company. He explained at International tourism exhibition MITT 2012 in Moscow that German tour operators would not promote Greece in 2012.
He specified that German travel agencies generated 40% of the tourism revenues of Greece, as well as for some 1 million tourists per year. Greeks offer bargain prices for Russians in order to compete with Bulgaria, Turkey and Spain. Bulgaria, however, offers low hotel costs, high standard of service, as well as great plane tickets prices.
