Excitement about Alanya offer at Lidl
In its latest travel brochure, Lidl has a 22-day "all-inclusive" holiday offer for 599 euros for Turkey.
Discount supermarket chain Lidl has started its all-inclusive Christmas sale in Turkey. The price for a 22-day holiday in Turkey, which is also on the social media agenda, was announced at 599 euros including flight costs. Alanya's hoteliers are said to be worried about this because all-inclusive vacation programs usually only last one week to 15 days. Alanya tourism officials said that the high input costs are not sustainable and they can't have a vacation in Alanya at these prices. They warned that without airfare, the per day cost is €9-10, which may hurt tourism professionals.
The president of the Cleopatra Hoteliers Association explains that tourists are lured to Turkey for the low prices. He said, “The flight costs make up less than half the daily price, meaning it is not possible for hotel specialists to provide a service that is good for those who book with them at these rates." The prices mentioned are too low, and should be at least 30-35 euros. If it is only bed and breakfast, it should not be less than 20-25 euros.
