In the spring, Booking.com and Airbnb services, popular and beloved by many, left the Russian market. Nevertheless, their domestic counterparts have something to offer travelers. Let’s talk about the most important and interesting features.
There is blog
In it, the service tells about unusual and interesting routes in Russia and open foreign destinations: from five reasons to visit Chuvashia next weekend to a selection of the best Dominican beaches. In addition to travel ideas, the blog publishes useful tips and current news. For example, what to do with tickets for canceled flights and which countries are allowed without COVID documents.
Bonuses for Plus subscribers
For example, when booking a hot tour, users get 5% cashback, which can be spent on the next trip, a taxi ride, orders from the marketplace, and entertainment in other Yandex services. You can also access price charts (listed literally by day) for more than fifty destinations.
News in story format
The service publishes useful information on the site in the story format, which is convenient because there are no unnecessary questions. Here you can also buy everything you need for a vacation: from a roomy suitcase to a swimsuit and cream with SPF.
Detailed guide to Russia
It works only with Russian destinations and is ideal for those who plan a trip well in advance. Plus, before paying, the service offers to get acquainted with the program of the upcoming trip, living conditions, meeting places and other important details.
Favorable accommodation conditions
The site contains more than 200 thousand housing options. Most importantly, at competitive prices. They do not take a commission from homeowners, which helps keep prices as low as possible. Convenient filtering with customizable parameters and a scalable map is a trifle, but nice.
Building a long and difficult route? That way. Specify the destinations, select the means of transportation (airplanes, trains, buses), and the service will automatically load all the tickets in one order. And one more thing: now there are special conditions on the site — for example, the expositions of the Pushkin Museum can be visited at a reduced price and at any convenient time.
