Dear Subscriber,

Russian travel market is constantly changing and that is why it is important to stay updated about the market trends. It seems like the beginning of 2016 provides a more positive perspective on the outbound travel. For the past months the oil prices stabilized, keeping Russian rouble strong which resulted in the revival of the bookings for the New Year holidays.

- Sales representation conditions in Russia and CIS
- PR opportunities in Russia
