Russian tourismThe number of Russians vacationing abroad has increased in recent times and has almost passed its pre-crisis period. From January to June, 17.1 million Russian tourists traveled abroad, increasing by 30 percent from last year.

 

Russian outbound tourist trips peaked at 42.9 million in 2014, before dropping by 19 percent and 9 percent in 2015 and 2016 due to the Ruble’s devaluation, geopolitical turmoil, and the closure of main Russian tourist destinations Egypt and Turkey.

 

Turkey is getting back its status as Russia’s most popular tourist destination with 4.1 million tourists having already visited this year.

 

Turkey accounted for two-thirds of all tour sales this year. Following Turkey are Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Spain, as well as Montenegro and Croatia. Vedomosti reported that less than 28 percent of Russians have a passport valid for traveling abroad, and this made a large number of them to go for a holiday at home.

 
Bankruptcy of Russian charter air carrier VIM Avia means the cost of tours to Russia’s most popular destinations could rise by 10 to 20 percent next summer.
