What Do Russian Tourists Take with Them Abroad when Travelling?
May 16, 2019 20:31


Russian tourists carry water heaters, buckwheat and sausages on their vacation abroad. Russian tourists often take food with them during their travels, they like to wrap suitcases with kitchen film, and the most important thing they need during a vacation abroad is a water heater, as the poll by Aviasales ticket search service showed.

“The first thing that indicates a Russian tourist is a suitcase wrapped in kitchen film. According to passengers’ opinion, this way they can save money on packaging at the airport and protect their suitcases from burglary and damage”, as the PR Director Janis Dzenis to the Interfax-Tourism portal. According to him, some tourists are also carrying the film to wrap a suitcase on their way back.

“The second item that is indispensable for Russians on a trip is a water heater. Thrifty tourists choose it, because it is more compact than a teapot, and you can always brew tea or coffee in it, or “even cook sausages”.

Travelers also take cigarettes with them, because in the majority of foreign countries a pack of cigarettes will cost much more than in Russia”, as Dzenis added.

Many our compatriots, as the Aviasales poll indicated, put food products in their suitcase: for example, sausages, buckwheat, bread, cookies and sunflower seeds.

Besides, you can find slippers and a towel in the suitcases of Russian travelers. At this, some take these items from home on vacation, while others, on the contrary, take these things home from the hotel.

“Our tourists like to carry separate bags from supermarkets for clean and dirty things and pack each item in a plastic bag”, as Aviasales reported.

The top ten most popular things that Russians take to vacation included the first-aid kit that occupied only the seventh line. At the same time, many of respondents emphasized the fact that it was better to buy medicines in Russia, because in Europe only a few medications could be bought without a prescription.

“The eighth line of the most in-demand items of Russian travelers was alcohol. Tourists take Russian vodka for vacation and take local alcohol home as a souvenir”, as J. Dzenis added. The penultimate line was occupied by a cosmetics bag, which will surely include shampoos, shower gels, scrubs, lipsticks, perfumes and creams. And the ranking by Aviasales is closed by women’s things: hair curlers and high-heeled shoes. Moreover, tourists use a curler not only for hairstyles, but also as an iron and a dryer for clothes.
