For the second year in a row, Russian outbound tourism operators, in accordance with the law, report on the number of Russians sent abroad and the cost of their vacation. RBC analyzed the information submitted to the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rosturizm) this year. It turned out that if, according to data for 2016, the minimum average cost of one tour abroad was 21 rubles. per person, then for 2017 - less than 2 rubles.
Last year, the data in the Unified Federal Register of Tour Operators was changed after RBC applied for clarification. This year, the travel company that set the price record explained it as a "mistake". However, experts believe that industry players make such mistakes not by chance, but in order to save on contributions to special funds.
According to RBC, a representative of the Ministry of Culture, which is in charge of Rostourism, is currently analyzing the information provided by outbound tourism operators. If necessary, inquiries will be sent to tour operators, they promise in the ministry. The Rostourism press service provided a similar response to RBC's request.
The Law "On the Fundamentals of Tourist Activities in the Russian Federation" obliges from 2017 all travel companies sending clients abroad to provide Rostourism with information for the reporting year on the number of tourists sent abroad and the total cost of the "tourist product" in the field of outbound tourism ". At the same time, the law defines a "tourist product" as "a set of transportation and accommodation services provided for a total price." Thus, the cost of the tourist product includes both transport and hotel services.
The companies' contributions to various funds designed to protect the interests of tourists depend on the data on the number of clients served and the total cost of tours sold by them. The number of clients sent abroad is tied to the annual contribution to the reserve fund, from which the emergency removal of tourists from the resorts is financed, and the amount of the financial guarantee. On the basis of the total cost of the tours sold, in turn, the contribution to the personal liability fund of the tour operator is calculated - in the event of its collapse, the fund will compensate the company's clients for the damage incurred.
Information for 2016 provided by outbound tourism operators a year ago could not but cause surprise. As RBC calculated then, for a dozen companies, the cost of a full-fledged tour abroad averaged less than 1,000 rubles. per person.
At such prices, there are no tours even for a day or half a day, the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) commented then on these data, doubting the reliability of the information provided by the companies. The Rosturizm then stated that the department was not endowed with the powers to supervise and control travel companies - only the Ministry of Culture, which supervises the Rosturizm, can carry out their checks.
Following RBC's clarifying inquiries, the information in the register for individual companies has changed. The Ministry of Culture has not officially announced any check of the players in the tourism market.
At the end of 2017, eight outbound tourism operators received information according to which the cost of a tour abroad for them does not exceed 1 thousand rubles, RBC was convinced by analyzing the updated information in the Unified Federal Register of Tour Operators.
Far Eastern tour operators dominate among the companies with the cheapest tours, just like a year ago. So, according to the Federal Agency for Tourism, LLC "Continent +" from Nakhodka sent 1095 people abroad in 2017, and the declared "total cost of a tourist product in the field of outbound tourism" was only 2 thousand rubles. Thus, one tour from the company cost an average of 1.8 rubles. per person. A year earlier, this figure was more impressive for her - 3 thousand rubles. per person.
