The potentials of Greece as a travel destination are truly unlimited
According to the latest statistics, the 2018 season brings a new record high for foreign travelers’ arrivals and expenses.
Greece has clearly been established as a top-level world destination, not only for summer vacations, but for spring and autumn city breaks, cultural trips, while it has recovered most of the previous damage in its reputation.
Is this the end of the journey or are there more records to beat? The answer is clear and straightforward. The potentials of the country as a travel destination are truly unlimited and only a small part of what it can offer to visitors has been revealed.
The 2019 season will definitely not be easy as the competition among Mediterranean destinations is expected to thrive.
All stakeholders and policymakers engaged in the domestic travel industry will have to try harder to raise the level of the provided services, to reinvent, repackage and diversify the Greek tourism product in order to include new unique destinations and experiences not only on the islands but in the mainland as well, all year long.
The 2019 season will definitely not be easy as the competition among Mediterranean destinations is expected to thrive. Perhaps now is the time to shift our attention not to a new record in arrivals but to the quality, loyalty and the spending capacity of our foreign visitors.
