- What is the idea of Riva Booking and how was it born?
Riva booking is an app, available free of charge on all platforms and on desktop, to book sun beds, umbrellas and all the services offered by the best establishments on our peninsula. Thanks to Riva Booking, it's possible discover the offer of the most beautiful structures in Italy, what are the prices, what is the restaurant menu, if a table is available for lunch, parking, if you can take your pet to the beach, take sailing, windsurfing, sup courses, rent a boat, have access to the pool area and much, much more! And if you find what is right for you, you can book everything with a simple tap, in total relaxation! From Sicily to Liguria, the app currently has almost 500 beach clubs and it is continuing to expand like wildfire.
The idea stems from the need to have a smart tool to book a sunbed, umbrella and all the services offered by the bathing establishments. The intuition came from our CEO, Yor Balini who, being the owner of a well-known beach club in Ostia, was the first to realize how useful an app like Riva Booking would be. If we think about it, we have long had applications for booking airplanes, hotels, restaurants, cinemas, scooters, visits to museums and even trips in carpooling mode, but in fact, until last year, there was no functional app. to plan a day at the beach!
2. What feedback did you get?
We have had excellent feedback, Luckily. Everything that helps people to avoid waiting and the risk of not finding a place, everything that is comfort, in short, is always appreciated. All the more so in the Covid era, considering the fear of queues and gatherings.
3. How much do you think digital has helped us in this difficult period?
Digital is our future. It was strange that there was still no functional app for planning a day at the beach without stress. And it's still not used by everyone. We expect significant growth next year.
4. In your opinion, at what stage is the promotion of tourism and the territory in Italy and what more could be done?
In Italy there is a good promotion of tourism, but still a little bit digital. If trade associations or tourism bodies promoted and encouraged the use of tools such as Riva Booking, they could benefit greatly and even profile tourists, both foreign and Italian, by collecting important information for the definition of tailor-made offers.
We thank the Riva Booking team for giving us this interesting interview and we wish them a big good luck!
