World-leading ground transportation solution Welcome Pickups has launched operations in London today. This is the first Welcome destination in the UK, with more scheduled to launch in 2021
This new launch offers travellers and Londoners alike a new, safe and reliable way to travel to and from London airports. Service will be available to/from Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Luton and Stanted airports.
“London was the most visited destination during the 2019 Christmas period. Even with travel restrictions in place this year, people will still have to travel in order to see their loved ones, after spending a long time apart. We aim to offer them a completely stress-free and safe experience for their airport transfer.” Alex Trimis – Founder and CEO, Welcome Pickups
The addition of one of Europe’s largest cities to Welcome’s list will not only expand the company’s service offerings, but will also provide visitors with personalised transportation experiences for trips such as airport transfers and sightseeing rides. Welcome Pickups have been recruiting some of the best and most trusted drivers in London to offer the best possible rides for their passengers. Allowing drivers who are proud of where they live to make travellers feel welcome and fall in love with their home.
Welcome Pickups also plans to engage local accommodation providers, giving them the ability to automate transfer arrangements and collect guest data to personalise guest stays, while simultaneously generating an additional stream of revenue.
Welcome Pickups will continue its expansion into new destinations in the new year, with more launches in Europe and the Americas in the works.
