This year's holiday will be 10% more expensive, experts warn. And the reason for the higher price is inflation.

"The price range can vary between 100 and 500 leva per night, it depends on the number of accommodated and the services in the package. Within 400 leva per day, one family of four can fit without lift passes and ski services. On average, I see an 8-10% increase in hotel services, which comes to rob the more expensive energy resource, "said Marian Belyakov - Executive Director of Pamporovo AD.

More than half a million Bulgarians will travel for Christmas and New Year, according to the Institute for Analysis and Assessment of Tourism.

"We expect a total of about 580,0000 Bulgarians to travel to Bulgaria, with 180,<> traveling abroad, the others vacationing in Bulgaria," said Konstantin Zankov of the institute.

Traditionally, the most sought after during this period are the mountain guest houses and hotels in the ski resorts and spa centers.

"Such are the guest houses in the Rhodope Mountains, different mountain regions - Bansko, Borovets, Pamporovo are interested in skiers. Velingrad, Sandanski, Hisarya are also very sought after places," Zankov said.

There is also no shortage of reservations.

"Early bookings shifted a month later in the year. Currently, registrations are still underway, the activation is serious, "says Marian Belyakov.

The decisive thing in the choice of tourists is the ratio between price and quality. Reservations should be careful.

"For Bulgaria, typical signals are for bad attitude or cold hotels. Very typical and typical for the winter holidays. Many hotels open for the holidays and they turn on the heating on the day guests arrive. And abroad most often there are duplicate reservations, "said Bogomil Nikolov from "Active Consumers".

Due to the risk of booking in advance, experts advise taking out insurance. It will cover any loss if our vacation fails.
