Our successful presence in the Greek tourism market encouraged us despite the financial instability to expand our activities towards the creation of a user friendly online travel agency. Two years later www.petas.gr receives the first award for our premium quality services.
Once upon a time, the basic communication between travel agents was effectuated through fax. Nowadays, the technological evolution has radically changed the ways of bookings and travelling. Thus, our travel agency based on its more than thirty years’ experience in the Greek tourist market decided despite the unstable financial environment to upload a user friendly website for flight tickets and ferry tickets issuance, hotel bookings, travel insurances, car rentals and package services. www.petas.gr
works with efficiency, speed and accuracy in order to provide the best solutions for economic travelling. As soon as we introduced the petas project to the Greek market, we expanded our online activities to the Cypriot, Maltese and Israeli markets as well. The results were outstanding. In a few years the combination of the traditional experience based on our offline branch (Altair Travel Agency S.A.) and the technological improvement of petas.gr established our reputation as an OTA (Online Travel Agency) which could be trusted and used for high quality services.
Hence, we already received our first award from the e-business Research Center and the Athens University of Economics and Business as the most innovative startup in the tourism section for the year 2013.
This award along with the rapid growth of our travel agency encourages for further expansion to more than ten additional counties abroad under the domain name www.tripair.com. We foresee that the online sales of ferry tickets within the Greek islands will present an equal increase worldwide, so we have already uploaded an iPhone App which makes it fun and easy for the traveler to book online ferry tickets from/to Greece, Italy and between all major ports to the Greek islands.
Our future plans also evolve a sophisticated construction of a website which will be addressed exclusively to the travelers abroad who wish to book online ferry tickets for their summer vacations in Greece. This complicated project demands substantial efforts, innovative design and fresh ideas which will be provided by our specialized cooperators and our newcomers who constantly enrich the project with new ideas.
