“Our travel agencies are taking additional security measures. They train their employees and, in particular, the drivers of tourist buses to avoid road accidents. Our desire is that guests who came to us were pleased with the stay and have never experienced any problems”, – said the President of the Association of travel agencies of Turkey (TÜRSAB) Firuz Baglikaya.
According to him, Russian tourists come to Turkey with health insurance, which in most cases cover the cost of treatment.
Russia ranks first among the countries whose citizens prefer to stay in Turkey. According to the main Department for migration of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Turkey, the country in 2018 was visited by a record number of Russian citizens – more than 5.9 million.
