Seasonal Discounts in Uzbekistan
Uzbekistan has two high tourist seasons, and two low tourist seasons. If you decide to come in low season, you may expect serious discounts from local travel agents, hotels, transport providers and guides.
Uzbekistan Travel Seasons
Uzbekistan has few facilities for the disabled. Transport is
difficult to access, entrances have steps and narrow doors. There are rarely
public lifts. Metro entrances and underpasses in Tashkent, as well as some of
office main entrances are equipped with rails for wheel-chairs, but they only
represent an intention, rather than a working facility. It takes real
determination for disabled travelers to get around.
Students and youth in general enjoy certain privileges on
public transport and museums. Also, Uzbek Airways (Uzbekistan Havo Yullary)
offers rebates for young people under 28.
International students cards of all kinds are usually not accepted for
