Hotel booking service BookingCom stopped working in the Crimea! Message: "Unfortunately, at this time on our site it is impossible to book accommodation in Crimea for the purpose of rest", - appeared on the site today while trying to book a hotel in the Republic of Crimea. This was because BookingCom supported sanctions against the Crimea.
Booking a hotel in the Crimea on HotelsCom is currently also impossible.
How to book a hotel in the Crimea, if you plan to go on holiday on your own?
If you know the hotel where you plan to spend your vacation and its contact details (phone number, e-mail address), then you can try to contact the hotel directly, although it is not as convenient as using the online reservation services.
Suggestions to create their own hotel reservation system in Russia have already been done recently. It is very likely that now such a system will be created. It is possible that after this service BukingKom partially lose its leading position not only in Crimea, but also on the whole territory of Russia.
According to the information available in the Internet, business travelers can use the services of BuckingCom. But this does not make life easier for ordinary tourists.
