Vacations in Russia are overshadowed by the problem of searching a good hotel for a fair price. “Because of their small number Russian hotels are very expensive, which naturally does not conform to their service,” concluded spokeswoman for the Russian Union of Travel Industry Irina Turina in an interview.
Viktor Pashkov, Director of the Department of consulting, exhibitional and publicizing activities of the Joint Stock Company ASM, considers this enterprise to be very risky under the Russian conditions. Dúvidas sobre o sucesso das autocaravanas
According to him, “this development will cost too much. It is always difficult to start everything from scratch; moreover, Russians are not used to resting in motor homes. This type of vacations is more typical of Europeans and Americans. Such investments amount to tens of million dollars, that is why it is advisable to think it over first,” he said.
Risk is a noble deed, the ASM spokesman thinks. Moreover, Hymer AG spokesmen do not make great plans. Two thousand motor homes annually for the country of 150 million people is an acceptable figure. “Their goods might be a success. The market is practically free, welfare of the population is increasing and tourist aspiration is also great. I welcome any initiatives,” Pashkov said.
According to her, the reason for low demand for motor homes in Russia is caused by insufficient supply. “The thing is that you can’t go far by car. While you are going one way, your vacations are over. Even if you are in Moscow, you cannot reach the Urals. Moreover, Russian roads are absolutely different from European and American roads. At best you can travel across your own or neighbouring region,” Turina said.
Taking into consideration all these reasons it must be difficult to develop tourism in motor homes in Russia. Eventually these journeys are dangerous. “We live in a wild country. We are not secure from all kinds of attacks and murders during long travels,” Viktor Pashkov concluded.
