I have just searched for a hotel in Turkey via price comparison sites. For One week all inclusive for people people, this was showing as £1228 on a popular booking site, however, the same holiday is showing as 2,298TL (£628) on a Turkish website. When I went to book I was then asked for a Turkish ID Number or tick a box to say that I wasn't a Turkish Citizen which I did, I was then presented with the following:
WARNING: You stated that the visitor is not a citizen of the Republic of Turkey. The facility prices mentioned for the reservation can only be applied for Turkish citizens. If the guest is a citizen of a different country other than the TC, the facility may charge a price difference. If such a situation occurs, our related departments will communicate with you.
....but the "price difference" Isn't specified therefore leaving it open. So I called the hotel myself and asked and they said that foreigners would be charged an extra 200 Euros, yes Euros, per day per apartment !!
I don't mind a little price discrimination....but that is taking the kebab!
This is very acknowledged + bios. Do you know how much double international students have to pay for their tuition more than normal local students in many countries such as USA, Canada, UK or in Europe?
If European tourist are charged 3 4 5 times the local price same rule should apply to non ecc going to Europe
Cheaper flights must go low and it would not feel like u bin shortchanged wen c all the wonders of your distanation
