Visitors to the golden beaches of Greece are now able to make beach bed bookings for perfect sun-drenched days before their plane even touches the ground, thanks to an innovative app developed by one of the country’s leading digital agencies.
The people who have frequented the beaches of Greece know too well that making a beach bed booking in the right spot with the right view is very nearly impossible at times. The summer season runs from May through to September, peaking in August and to alleviate the frustration and create a customized experience for visitors, a leading digital agency called re|direct out a year-long research project and created Plazz app.
Beach Bed Bookings
The Plazz app, available for download on iOS and Android, allows visitors the opportunity to reserve a beach-bed on their preferred beach of choice, for a specific date and time. The app also facilitates a secure paying system, reducing the need to carry cash AND saving visitors the frustration many ultimately succumb to when searching for available beach-beds on the day meant for sunshine and fun.
Since inception in 2015, when Greece attracted 26.5 million visitors, Plazz has grown its footprint to more than 10 000 users with an ever-growing footprint of beach bed, currently at 1200, with a range of VIP beach-beds and cabanas recently introduced at certain locations.
Having first launched Plazz at the premiere beach resort Astir Beach in Athens, founders Manos Paterakis and Lefteris Farmakas aim to grow the partner network’s footprint to include all beaches in Greece by 2017.
Currently, this unique customized visitor experience, allowing for carefree summer days, is available at select locations along the Greek coastline, including Crete, Corfu, Naxos, Santorini, and Zakynthos.
