Welcome Pickups, a leader in providing holistic in-destination travel services to travelers around the globe, recently announced several new features to its tools for hoteliers and travel agents, underlining that even more are on the horizon for the coming months.
Partners of Welcome Pickups who take advantage of the free Welcome app will be able to boost sales by automating their pre-arrival guest emails, transfer process and collection of arrival details, without the need of additional staff hours. Along with automation, partners can expect higher productivity and increased conversion rates due to upcoming user experience improvements. This all helps facilitate guest reviews and increased revenue for each property.
Meanwhile, as the busy summer season has already begun, travelers using Welcome can expect the same trusted service in all new destinations. From pre-ordered tickets, to SIM cards, WiFI hotspots and local experiences, travelers will enjoy a stress-free arrival, departure and everything in between.
