The exciting expansion of Welcome Pickups continues with the addition of seven new locations across the globe; Bilbao, Madeira, Stuttgart, Hanoi, Bari, Zadar and Naxos.

Welcome’s exceptionally speedy and successful expansion in over 100 destinations worldwide continues its impressive trajectory throughout February 2023. Following its incredible track record throughout many destinations in Europe and beyond, Welcome Pickups is now offering its premium services in 6 new European destinations. Travellers can now enjoy Welcome’s services in the historic city of Bilbao, their 9th destination in Spain. This unique city sees around 1 million visitors per year, with people flocking to see the impressive historical buildings and the famous Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Another fantastic destination for a city break in Europe is Welcome’s 2nd location in Germany, Stuttgart. Over 12 million passengers enter Stuttgart Airport annually, and with its stunning green spaces, like Schlossgarten and Rosensteinpark, as well as one of the largest zoos and botanical gardens in Europe, it’s no wonder why Stuttgart is one of the most popular destinations in Germany. 

For travellers looking for a sunny beach destination, the Greek Island Naxos is a perfect choice. Marking the 11th destination for Welcome’s expansion in Greece, Naxos’ classic white buildings, turquoise waters and ancient sites keep the hotels in Naxos at around 90% booking capacity. Another dreamy beach destination is Welcome’s 4th destination in Portugal, the sunny city of Madeira. Around 125,000 tourists come to sample Madeira’s namesake wine, marvel at the impressive volcanic cliff faces and relax in one of the many high-end beach clubs every month. Alternatively, people looking for a little history with their oceanfront vacation will fall in love with Bari. Marking Welcome Pickups’ 10th destination in Italy, Bari is nestled on the Adriatic Sea and is home to the picturesque 11th-century Basilica di San Nicola. Over 700 thousand tourists become enamoured with the winding streets and delicious cuisine of Bari every year. 

Zadar marks Welcome’s final new European destination for February 2023 and its 2nd operational destination in Croatia. An average of 800,000 passengers walk through the doors of Zadar Airport annually, excited to begin exploring this incredibly historical city. The Roman and Venetian ruins are one of Zadar’s main attractions, and the incredible Roman-era Forum and 11th-century St. Mary’s Convent are must-sees while in the city. 

However, Europe isn’t the only location for Welcome Pickups’ February expansion. Hanoi is the 2nd location in Vietnam to enjoy the personalised services of Welcome. This sprawling city is Vietnam’s capital and sees a staggering 1.2 million visitors every year. Their unique blend of Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences and their awestriking temples, including the famous Bach Ma temple, make Hanoi the perfect place for travellers to experience the rich culture of Vietnam. 

With so much tourism potential in these seven new destinations, partnering with Welcome Pickups is an incredible way for hotels, affiliates, travel agencies, and vacation rental managers to offer added value to their customers while generating another healthy revenue stream.
