Russian travel experts for 25 years, Beyond Travel, wish to advise agents that there are number of major sporting and business events occurring in St Petersburg in 2020 during the popular months of June and July and to be prepared and plan ahead to avoid hotel price rises and lack of availability.

GM for sales and marketing, Bryce Crampton, recommends agents should book clients preferred accommodation as early as possible to secure availability and the best rate available. Agents should also encourage clients to secure ground touring arrangements and entrance tickets to museums and palaces to avoid disappointment with overcrowding and closures.

“As we found with FIFA last year, even the museums and palaces were affected with private functions being held in popular venues and thus closed to the public. Due to our longstanding and close connections with our partners in Russia, Beyond Travel are able to assist agents with clients requirements to ensure they have a seamless experience in the stunning city if St Petersburg”.

“Our team is here to offer advice, including free visa support with all bookings to Russia- which has been well received since the recent opening of the new Russia visa processing centre in the Sydney CBD earlier this year”.
