How are Bolt and Uber pushing our tourism forward?


first_imgBolt’s electric scooter rental service is extremely well received by customers in other markets, such as Spain and Portugal, because it is a great alternative to cars for shorter trips, especially in cities where daily traffic is extremely congested. The use of scooters reduces the number of cars on the roads, which at the same time solves the problem of congestion and reduces environmental pollution. Often the very arrival of global companies / brands pushes the whole market forward through raising the quality of service, providing new services and products, new business standards, innovations… because everyone is fighting for the same piece of cake. Today we are a world-famous destination that attracts tourists from all over the world, and when global brands and platforms are present in our destination, it gives additional confidence and raises the reputation of both our tourism and our economy. This is not a coincidence, and all this gives the impression that we are a safe and modern tourist destination, gives a positive signal to other investors that we are an interesting and open market, etc.… One binds the other. On the other hand, Uber users in Zagreb have the opportunity to choose their new premium service – Uber Black, which brings the use of cars of the highest class. Feel free to draw a parallel that our tourism is not present on Booking.com, TripAdvisor, Airbnb or that Uber, Nike, Hilton, etc. are not present… reputation is important. “Our mission in Bolt is to enable people to move around the city faster and easier. Avoiding crowds, especially during the summer season, is a big problem in cities like Split. Every fourth ride in Split is shorter than 3 kilometers, which makes it an ideal city for scooter travel. In this way we solve two problems: we reduce the number of car rides and save our users time and moneySaid Marcus Villig, CEO and founder of Bolt The speed of the scooter is up to 20 km / h, and in certain special areas, such as the surroundings of Diocletian’s Palace, the speed is limited to 10 km / h. As they point out from Bolt, for a start, 150 scooters will be deployed, which will be located in the center of Split at traffic hotspots and frequent locations such as Riva, Matejuška, bus station, HNK Split and many others. The entire rental process is of course digitized through the mobile application, while unlocking the scooter will cost 4 kuna, and the price of use will be 1.30 kuna per minute of driving. And that’s why the presence of global brands as well as the competition is generally great, because everyone is fighting for the same market and pushing themselves to be better, more innovative, more creative… and the biggest winners are customers and the economy as a whole. And thus our tourism. Photo: Bolt When we talk about congress tourism and raising the overall quality of tourism, Uber Black certainly contributes to that. Let’s say a plastic situation: One of the conference speakers comes to the congress, and the organizer comes to the airport in Tesla to pick him up. The Wow element is certainly present here, both according to the organizer and the overall experience and brand of Lijepa naša. How are Bolt and Uber pushing our tourism forward? New news from Uber and Bolt further raises the quality and differentiation of our tourism through new services. Thus, Bolt presented a new electric scooter rental service in Split, which became the first city in Southeast Europe with this ingenious option. Photo: Uber Namely, Bolt was the first to introduce the rental of electric scooters in Croatia, while Uber introduced a new premium service Uber Black, which provides the possibility of transportation via the Tesla Model S. So now all those who want to experience a trip in the Tesla Model S, Jaguar I-PACE, various luxury models of Mercedes or some other manufacturer, can choose the Black service while ordering. Whatever you think, the arrival of global brands and platforms certainly raises the global reputation, which is very important for positioning our tourism, and thus our economy as a whole. We are looking forward to the shots of Hollywood movies from Croatia, and even the globally popular Uber has chosen Croatia as the best destination for the world premiere of the UberBOAT service. Uber has introduced a premium Black service alongside top-class carslast_img read more
