Welcome Pickups charges ahead with its expansion plans in the US with the announcement of its latest Savannah launch.

May 8, 2023, Athens – Welcome Pickups adds another city to its growing list of United States destinations and kicks off operations in Savannah, Georgia. Travellers can now head to Savannah with added peace of mind, knowing that Welcome’s 5-star transfers and personalised services are already on the ground waiting for them.

Following a record-beating year for tourism in 2019, which saw Savannah welcoming an estimated 14.8 million visitors, the city used the two-year interruption due to Covid-19 to work on development projects and new attractions to boost tourism in the area and return to its glory days. In 2022, these efforts came to fruition when Savannah Airport set a new record for the most annual visitors in the airport’s history, 3,533,294 passengers. Furthermore, figures show hotels and accommodations reached 71% occupancy in 2022, with Savannah reporting their strongest year ever, further reinforcing the city’s forecast for similar growth patterns in 2023.

Georgia’s first city, Savannah, is world-famous for its Southern charm, rich history, well-preserved architecture, and fantastic events and festivals celebrating anything you can imagine under the Georgian sun. Both business and leisure travel has picked up since the pandemic, with Savannah’s famous festivals making an epic comeback after a few years off. Notable events such as St. Patrick’s Day, Savannah Music Festival and Savannah Jazz Festival are back and here to stay, with travellers flocking from all over to experience Southern hospitality and culture at its finest. Moreover, Savannah has developed quite the reputation as a culinary lover’s dream. From salty Southern meals to imaginative cocktails, it’s no surprise that Tripadvisor ranked the city 4th in best food destinations across the United States. With one of the hottest travel trends this year centred around ‘foodie destinations’, the historical city will certainly see an influx of visitors coming to sample their famous fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits. 

If you’re a travel business or company in Savannah searching for ways to add value to your customer experience and simultaneously boost your revenue, partnering with Welcome Pickups is a surefire way for hotels, affiliates, vacation rental managers and travel agencies to provide a seamless travel experience for their customers.
