At least 30% decline in winter tourists in Bansko and the region predict hoteliers , Bulgarian National Radio reported.
It is expected for restaurateurs to be even bigger.
The Union of Tourist Business reports a significant outflow of tourists from the UK, Turkey and Russia. However, Bulgarian tourists have been the most drastic.
According to hoteliers, this is due to the big tails in front of the cabin lift, the advertising of the resort as the cheapest winter destination and the price dumping that distorts the competitive environment.
All inclusive packages are available on the market for just 30 euros . The high-class hotels of the concessionaire of the ski area also offer offers at extremely low prices.
The industry has indicated that there have been indications for a deepening of the problem for several years. Most worrying, however, are the predictions for this winter season.
In Greece and Turkey there are state requirements and high standards for the all inclusive service – it is only allowed for high-class hotels and closed tourist complexes.
For this reason, the Association of Tourist Business in Bansko indicated that they would raise the issue with all state institutions.
