Russian tour operators are on the verge of another break-through offering economy travelling
Brand-new Russian travel search engine, in
collaboration with big international industry players,
is embracing a new possibility of making
technological advances as far as dynamic tour
packages are concerned.
Every day more than 80,000 users are looking for tours at this website, and more than 250,000 are
using its search modules, resulting in 650, 000 searches daily.
It is a well-known fact that many Russian tourists prefer “all-inclusive” deals, the overall figure being
around 35%, whereas 56% of tourists are ready to pay for comfortable accommodation. These
impressive statistics gives grounds to believe that the outbound tourism in Russia is going to retain
its current trends, boosting the sales of custom-tailored tours.
The recent research data suggest that more than 80% of Russian tourists would prefer ready
package tours; however progressive companies have to think further ahead, with the remaining
20%, being turned into potential items of revenue.
The search engine in question presents a powerful tool to monitor the offers among more than 123
Russian tour operators. The customer has a chance to see an objective picture for all the
destinations as well as current market infrastructure.
By choosing the best option in the particular window, the potential buyer can determine the best
routes and prices for a particular destination. The prices are always checked online and compared
carefully against those offered by all rivals. The website provides a good example of booking a hotel
and a flight in one go, choosing amongst the most suitable variants presented by the major search
engines, such as Skyscanner.ru and Booking.com. What makes this service truly unique is the fact
that the explanations in the Russian language make the overall interface user-friendly and easier to
Each tour package includes the following aspects based on the customers’ needs:
information on the flight
transfer to/from the hotel
the operator’s coverage for emergency situations
Thus, a dynamic package with all the information provided, can be seen on the same screen. Even
the ratings of the air company and the hotel are included, so as not to make any errors in the final
choice.It goes without saying that one of distinct advantages of dynamic tours is the possibility to
rearrange “the ingredients” as compared to a typical ready package tour. So for the first time ever,
there appears to be a real choice between the two options, based on the preferences of the
customer. These two options are reflected on the screen – one being a ready tour, not envisaging
any changes and the other one being its dynamic counterpart where one can easily change some
Additional options include purchasing the package in the office directly or buying with a credit/debit
card which is still a novelty among Russian tourists as many of them are very reluctant to use the
electronic means of payment, because their mentality would be to prefer the old-fashioned cash
payment. One can see the option of buying a package itself, without any additional fees and charges
as well as the charges themselves, which certainly eliminates any risk of over-payment. The absence
of hidden charges is guaranteed, and the website provides only the most relevant information in
terms of included services. The exclamation marks and highlighted areas make it easier to choose
the appropriate factors.
The price is given in roubles, which might be a crucial psychological factor whilst comparing some
resorts and calculating the amounts with the help of a currency converter. One can also see the
graph illustrating the changes in dates, the minimum price, the length of the tour and the best deals
within a certain time period. Discount prices add to the beauty of this new service as well as the
possibility to figure out the visa costs.
Intelligent parameters of search engines almost prevent the traveller from getting a zero result.
Filters can be also switched on to illustrate the remoteness of the place – the distance from the sea
and the city centre. These filters can be applied to set a particular limit on the number of packages
regarding one tour operator as well as choosing the most reliable player in the field.
And, as Christmas and New Year’s Eve are looming on the horizon, wish
your dreams come true, it's high time for the fulfilment of the dearest
wishes!It’s time for miracles!
