New Boat service in Mykonos supported by Uber boat
Available from mid-June to October, the Boat will be an on-demand service.
Uber launches a new Boat service in Mykonos during the company's annual product launch event, Go-Get 2023, held in New York.
Available from mid-June to October, the Boat will be an on-demand service operated by a local licensed operator and available through the Uber app.
App users will be able to book speedboat tours at the touch of a button to move around Mykonos easily and reliably.
This new service is another step in the company's strategy, which puts Greece at the center of the European market and strengthens its support for Greek tourism, ensuring affordable and safe transportation options for both residents and visitors of the island. .
“We are very excited to offer a ground-breaking service on our app for the first time this year, during a year when tourism is expected to reach record levels. The Boat will offer Greek and foreign visitors a new way to explore and travel to the best beaches and spots of Mykonos through a unique and reliable alternative transportation solution. We chose Greece as the first country in Europe because we are strongly committed to the country and want to help local operators take advantage of the strong opportunities that come from domestic and imported tourism," said Sarita Varouch, General Manager of Uber Greece. .
With Greece preparing to welcome millions of visitors to its island destinations this year, tourism is a key pillar of the national economy benefiting thousands of small and medium-sized businesses. Confirming its commitment to provide additional support to local businesses through innovative approaches, Uber is expanding its collaboration with local partners to offer transportation services using its platform technology.
