Sumptuous beach hotels at Bulgaria’s seaside are fully booked until the end of August and it’s almost impossible to book a room right now. This was reported by Bulgaria's Deputy Minister of Tourism, Ivo Marinov. He also said that revenue this year will be by 5% or 10% less than last year. However, there will be a growth of 5% in the number of tourists. The great interest in Bulgaria as an ideal holiday destination this year is a result of lots factors. For instance, some travel experts think that the crisis in Greece has influenced the tourist flow this year and it was directed to Bulgaria. What is more important, though, is that Bulgaria’s seaside resorts offer prices that lower than these in Turkish and Greek summer resorts.
Bayko Baykov, member of the Managing Board of the Association of the Bulgarian Tour Operators and Travel Agents, claims that the hit of the summer season will be all Inclusive and Ultra All Inclusive Holidays. The prime reason for this occurrence is the great price for all packages and outstanding value in Bulgaria’s beach resorts.
