Experience with kasbeam worth repeating in the future, said in ATOR

The program of support of domestic tourism, which provides refunds to tourists (cashback) for travel around the country, was so good a tool to stimulate demand, that it is repeated after the end of 2020, said Executive Director of the Association of tour operators of Russia (ATOR) Maya Lomidze.

Earlier Rosturizm has declared that in August 2020, is conducting a special programme to support domestic tourism. The essence of the program lies in the fact that the tourist will be able to get a refund of up to 15 thousand rubles, depending on the cost of the permit. In the program, which will operate until the end of 2020, will involve all regions of the country, it includes both package tours (flight and accommodation), and separate accommodation for those who get on their own.

"We see tremendous potential demand for participation in the program of support of domestic tourism. As soon as the Federal tourism Agency said about the start of this campaign, went a lot of calls from tourists who said: "We are ready. Where to take money?" - commented Lomidze, speaking at a press conference on the resumption of flights of Russian citizens abroad.

"I think that as a tool to stimulate demand is a very effective story, it would be advisable to repeat in the future," she said.
