The FINANCIAL — Dubai is the number one New Year destination among Georgians this year. Egypt and the Czech Republic are also in the list of the most popular countries to visit. Italy and France remain the top destinations for the Christmas holidays.
“Compared to last year, demand in Georgia for tours to Dubai has significantly increased. This is due to the entrance of Fly Dubai to the Georgian market. Prices of Fly Dubai tours are quite affordable and twice cheaper than last year. Due to the tight competition, Georgian airlines Airzena decreased the prices and cost of their tour package to Dubai which is now quite acceptable,” said Ella Karapetyan, Director of BusinessTravelCom.
“The prices of a one week tour to Dubai start from 1,000-1,200 USD for two persons. The tour includes the cost of a 3 star hotel, transfer to the hotel, air tickets, visa and insurance. A flight to Dubai by Airzena costs 212 USD and 270 USD on Fly Dubai. A ten day trip to Egypt for two persons costs 1,500 USD. This price includes air tickets, transfer to the hotel, accommodation at a 4 star hotel and insurance. A double room at a 3 star hotel in Egypt now costs 1,350 USD for ten days,” Karapetyan said.
France, Spain, Italy and the Czech Republic are all popular destinations for holidays.
A flight to Prague starts from 390 EUR, Rome – 250 EUR, Milan – 245 EUR, Paris – 250 EUR, Vienna – 300 EUR. 3 star hotel bed and breakfast prices for two people per night start from 39 EUR in Prague, 65 EUR in Rome, 63 EUR in Milan, 67 EUR in Paris, and 68 EUR in Vienna.
“Dubai, Paris and Italy are the most popular destinations with our company’s customers. Dubai has become very popular lately. Most Georgians choose Dubai for their New Year vacation. The price of a one week tour to Dubai starts from 560 USD, tours to Europe and in particular Paris and Italy are from 500 EUR. The cost of the trip includes airline tickets, hotel, transfer and insurance process,” said Nana Chkheidze, Director of the company Green Travel.
“A cheaper flight, good service quality and nice atmosphere make this country the most attractive for Georgian tourists. Due to political instability though, the number of people willing to visit Egypt has also much decreased. Visiting France and Italy at Christmas, including on shopping tours and one week trips remain quite popular still,” said Beka Tujishvili, Travel Club.
