Introducing GoSafe – essential travel made safe

COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down. Weeks of lockdown and restrictions. Working from home, not working at all. Completely alone or squashed in with our loved ones. These are times marked by the word ‘unprecedented’.

Lockdown restrictions are now easing in many countries. What joy and relief to be able to get back to normal – to secure livelihoods and resume studies. But the risk of a second spike is real. We understand that ‘business as usual’ needs a helping hand.

The Safest City Transfer

We’re delighted to introduce an innovative new service, GoSafe. It’s the on-demand city transfer service that goes the extra mile to keep you safe.

Do you need to travel to a medical appointment? Concerned about getting to work or school on busy public transport? Underlying health conditions or worries about bringing the virus home to loved ones? We’ve got you covered, with the safety of a private car and the price of a taxi. At Welcome Pickups, your comfort and peace of mind are always our priority.

Safety first

Our rigorous safety protocol ensures your safety at all times. We actually go beyond government regulations such as face masks

Every car is thoroughly sanitised for each new ride. We’ve implemented a twenty-minute waiting period between customers to give our teams plenty of time to clean and air the cabin. And our hand-picked drivers are carefully vetted and trained, with regular compliance checks.

You can pre-order personal protective equipment for your journey. It’ll be delivered without driver contact. In fact, we offer a completely contactless ride, if you pay online. All that’s left for you to do is to sit back and relax. And enjoy the feeling of leaving your house again.

We can also help with patient transport and getting your employees safely to work.

  • Book online, via phone, or your favourite messaging app.
  • Request personal protective equipment for your ride. You’ll receive it without driver contact.
  • Sit back and relax. We’ll get you to your destination safe and sound.
