Greece hoping for exceptional tourism in 2018 after 30 million visitors in 2017

Published on : Monday, December 18, 2017
greeceGreece is a destination that entices visitors from all across the globe. According to the Ministry of Tourism, the current year has been phenomenal in terms of international arrivals and might outpace 2016’s record of 28 million visitors with an influx 30 million entries.

Antiquities, sun-splashed sandy beaches, alabaster villages with panoramic vistas of the vast azure Agean backdrop since the 1950s have been some of the premium attractions for the travellers across the globe making them visit Greece time and again. Adding to it is the mild Mediterranean climate which helped to develop the modern culinary revolution.

The usual destinations for the leisure travellers include Athens, Santorini, and Mykonos but this year, the less sought after choices have also seen rise in tourists’ footfall such as Lesvos and Samos in the North Aegean; Kavala in Eastern Macedonia; the island of Kos in the South Aegean; the Ionian islands of Zakynthos and Kefalonia. Greece’s second largest cities of Thessaloniki and its largest island of Crete are other big winners in tourism.

With such a demand from the worldwide travellers, the tourism authority is planning to promote the country as a year-round destination. They are thinking of new thematic travel experiences which might entice visitors and help Greece promote sustainability while showcasing the myriad of possibilities in a 365-day with a concentration on less visited destinations. Cultural tourism, religious and pilgrimage tours, cruising and touring the awe-inspiring islands by yacht, hiking, trekking, and biking, scuba diving and wellness travel are the other scope of development that the authority is looking into. It is thus, one of the ideal destination for both adventure and luxury travellers.

has revealed that it had updated its free mobile itinerary-planning app Google Trips with a new “discounts” tab.

This free mobile app now offers between 5 and 25 percent off selected tours, activities, events, and car rentals in major destinations.

The discounts come from direct partnerships arranged between Google and the booking platforms or companies providing them, said some of the participating companies.

BeMyGuest, GetYourGuide, EatWith, Expedia, Klook, Musement, Peek, Tiqets, TripAdvisor, TripUniq, and Urban Adventures are among the companies involved in this trip formation.

The offers varied in nature in our checks on Thursday.

The Google Trips app remains elegantly designed, offering to import your itinerary information from your Gmail account and provide model itineraries or destination inspiration based on when and where the user is traveling.

Google Trips has gained far more attraction than its previous effort, called Field Trip, which was a location-based app that meant to offer serendipity by revealing surprising aspects of places around a user.

Google Trips outranked Google Maps in downloads among the most downloaded and best-rated of travel category apps for Android devices.

The Google Trips enhancement comes at the end of a year in which the company tested in desktop search vacation rental search and dynamic vacation package search, while revamping its flights search for desktop and fully rebuilding its hotel search for mobile.

Google also rolled out other pinches to its travel product. These include adding to its desktop search the option for consumers to receive mobile notifications about rate changes on specific hotels — a service first popularized by Yapta many years ago.
