With the relationship between Russia and the U.S. improving, Welcome-to-Russia, the premier travel portal supporting accommodations and visa services for cities across the Former Soviet bloc, announced its membership in the prestigious American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).
Joining such prominent members as American Express, Sabre, Hyatt and Hertz, Welcome-To-Russia, which deals in a spectrum of travel services from business to family holiday excursions as well as adventure and romance tours, gains increased confidence from its worldwide markets as well as increased exposure and visibility.
ASTA is the world’s largest association of travel professionals. Members include not only travel agents, but also companies whose products they deal in such as tours, cruises, hotels, car rentals, etc. ASTA is the leading advocate for travel agents, the travel industry and the traveling public.
The new partnership with ASTA will enhance Welcome-to-Russia’s profile and help it meet international standards of the tour industry more fully, increase integration with travel agencies worldwide, as well as to provide better access to the latest and most complete information available concerning the tourism market in order to offer clients cutting-edge travel services.
Apartments, or flats, have been the exclusive mainstay of Welcome-to-Russia which has since assembled the largest inventory of short term rental flats across Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Latvia, typically priced at a fraction of the cost of a hotel.
In addition to a broad range of flats in major East European cities, WTR provides visa support, professional translation services, and on-time airport transfers for the thousands of predominantly U.S., Canadian and Western Europeans who are regular customers.
