Welcome Pickups continues its supercharged expansion with the launch of its 2nd destination in Egypt – Hurghada.
April 28, 2023, Athens – Following the successful launch of Cairo towards the end of 2022, Welcome Pickups shows no signs of slowing down as it announces the start of operations in Hurghada. Welcome’s premium personalised services are now available in this trending destination, giving travellers access to guaranteed door-to-door pickups and top-rated personalised private transfers with a trusted local professional at the wheel.
After a decade of extensive urban development, Hurghada was voted the 10th most popular destination in 2022 by TripAdvisor and with Egypt rising in popularity amongst travellers since the pandemic, it’s no surprise that the occupancy rate of hotels reached 93% last summer. With a decade of impressive development and a speedy post-covid recovery under its belt, Welcome is thrilled to harness this potential and begin operating in the up-and-coming resort town of Hurghada.
Once a charming old fishing village nestled between the Red Sea and the Sahara, Hurghada has transformed into a fantastic resort town packed with enough activities and attractions to satisfy even the most extreme of adventure enthusiasts. An ideal destination for underwater adventures, Hurghada offers some of the world’s best diving spots. Travellers can make the most of its renowned diving centres and show-stopping coral reefs, go windsurfing or snorkelling and even partake in some dolphin-watching. Furthermore, the town is full of traditional markets, historical districts and plenty of exciting desert activities, proving that there really is something for everyone here. With its varied mix of resorts and hotels – luxury, family-friendly and budget, cultural attractions and a vast array of fun-filled activities and excursions, Hurghada is a brilliant location for couples, families and watersports aficionados.
Marking its 2nd launch in Egypt, Welcome Pickups is now seeking potential partners in and around Hurghada and Cairo. With over 50 travel partners joining its portfolio every month to take advantage of Welcome’s automated booking system and premium services, don’t miss the chance to enhance your guest experience and boost your revenue effortlessly.
