Setur, a company within the Koç Group, it continues to remove barriers to travel and enrich lives. Visa-free tours are particularly focused on the North Africa, Balkans, and Far East regions, and there has been an increase of over 100% in demand for these tours compared to the previous year.

Having achieved the top position in the tourism sector for customer satisfaction three times in a row, Setur recommends tours to regions where Turkish citizens can travel with just their passports. This recommendation comes at a time when the visa application process is becoming longer, and the risk of postponing desired travel plans due to congestion at consulates is increasing.

Visa-free tours offer diverse routes

Among Setur's recommendations, Sharm El Sheikh stands out with its sandy beaches, turquoise sea, and famous diving spots. Hurgada, the gem of the Red Sea, attracts those interested in water sports, nightlife, and endless beaches. For those looking to spend their summer holiday surrounded by sea, sand, and sun, Setur promises an unforgettable experience. Balkan tours, with their unique architectural structures and nature, await those who want to infuse their vacation period with culture. Exotic Far East tours open the doors to entirely different worlds and continue to be among the most preferred regions for vacationers. Routes like the Thailand tour including Bangkok, Phuket, and Pattaya, as well as tours to Singapore, Japan, and Korea, are in high demand. Compared to the same period last year, there has been an increase of over two times in demand for all visa-free tours, with tour prices catering to every budget ranging from 499 to 5990 euros.

Among Setur's recommendations for nearby destinations, Cyprus continues to attract significant attention as always.
