This significant milestone underscores the company’s commitment to providing seamless travel experiences to a growing number of travelers, aiming to serve over 2.5 million passengers annually.

This expansion marks a crucial phase in Welcome Pickups’ journey, doubling its global presence from 100 to 200 destinations in less than 12 months. The company’s strategic growth reflects its relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation in the travel sector.
