Global Financial Crisis Has Only Psychological Effect on Bulgaria Travelers

Date: 02.12.2008

The global financial crisis has more of a psychological than a real effect on the demand for tourist services for the Christmas and New Year's Holidays, Vasilka Pankovska, Director Sales for one of the biggest Bulgarian tour operators "Alma Tour" reported on Monday.

Pankovska spoke in a special interview for the Darik radio.

She explained that the interest in faraway destinations has registered a decline, however, the closer ones have already been booked. Vacations in Tunisia, Malta, Turkey, Egypt and the European capitals are most popular among the Bulgarian clientele for this Holiday season.

The packages costing between EUR 500 and 6,000 have been the ones to get booked the fastest.

The company's analysis has revealed that those who have previously travelled to more expensive destinations now prefer less expensive ones. However, despite the decline, the faraway destinations have generally kept their average volume.

Sales of Holiday packages in Bulgaria have shown an increase in all market sectors - winter resorts, SPA centers such as Hissar, Velingrad, Sandanski, even in hotels on the Black Sea Coast.
