About Welcome Pickups
Founded in 2015 in Athens, Greece, Welcome Pickups goes above and beyond the commoditization transfer service. It was the first company to deliver a complete, in-destination travel experience. From the moment a traveler arrives at a new destination, until their return journey home, Welcome Pickups accommodates all their travel needs (transfers, travel products, activities, information) in the easiest, friendliest and most personalized way possible. As a highly customer-rated travel brand, Welcome Pickups has become the new standard for in-destination travel services with excellent reviews in reviews.io and Tripadvisor.
Until now Welcome has serviced over 1 million travelers in 51 destinations. Welcome Pickups has grown strongly and now employs a team of 100 people, mainly in Athens and Barcelona. Consistent with its mission to redefine the in-destination travel experience, Welcome is set to operate in 60 destinations by the end of 2019.
Tripair is an OTA with Headquarters in Germany. Its parent Company, Altair Travel Agency S.A. is a traditional travel agency with successful operations in Greece since 1980. In 2010 Altair Travel initiated its online operations in Greece (Greek online brand Petas.gr), followed by the Company’s gradual online expansion in Europe, Asia and the Americas (international online brand Tripair). The growth of Altair’s international online operations led to the establishment of
Tripair’s physical presence in Germany. Currently, Altair with its online brands, Petas.gr and Tripair, has online presence in 60 countries worldwide, and services over 1.5 million passengers annually.
