MarketPlace and Côte d’Azur France Pass

To enjoy as many activities as possible during the holidays and keep control of your budget, the Côte d’Azur France RTC has launched two mechanisms to serve tourists on the Côte d’Azur: the new Marketplace and the Côte d’Azur France Pass. More than ever, the 2020 summer season will be the chance to make the most of the incredible playground offered by the Côte d’Azur, from the sea to the mountains. As of now, the Côte d’Azur France RTC is offering two solutions to benefit from leisure and cultural activities that are simple to use and economical, namely the Côte d’Azur France Marketplace on the one hand, and the Côte d’Azur France Pass on the other.

THE CÔTE D’AZUR FRANCE MARKETPLACE

How does it work?

The CÔTE d’AZUR FRANCE RTC and AMADEUS (the main supplier of IT solutions to the world’s travel and tourism industry, based in Sophia-Antipolis) have developed a marketplace allowing for value to be added to the leisure activities in the CÔTE d’AZUR FRANCE region. It is based on the daily management of availability for the activities, which number over 200 to date.
The changes in the way tourist activities are used has been taken into consideration and this tool allows the client to book activities simply, quickly and in a customized fashion. Consequently, in 2-3 clicks, the customer pays for his/her activity via smartphone and can interact directly, without going through the service provider.

It is valid for one person only, allows entry to key sites and activities in the Alpes-Maritimes, Var and Monaco. In total, there are 117 activities, of which 30 dedicated to little ones.
