Founded in 2015 in Athens, Greece, Welcome Pickups goes above and beyond the commoditized 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.
Savvas Georgiou, Co-Founder, and CPO said:
“We have a winning combination of excellent staff and adequate funding to scale our product through partnerships with hotels, bnb hosts, property tech companies. We believe that every traveler deserves the warmest Welcome Pickups experience. We are dedicated to making our services as accessible and integrated as it gets in the travel tech industry.”
Until now Welcome has serviced over 1 million travelers in 47 destinations. Welcome Pickups has grown strongly and now employs a team of 105 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.
Welcome Pickups is a leading ground transportation solution, offering travellers the best end-to-end in-destination experience. Beyond our transfer services and sightseeing rides, the technology we provide and the data we collect enables our trusted drivers, accommodation providers and partners to seamlessly enhance and personalise a travellers entire stay.
