At Welcome, we are redefining the way people travel by offering them the most personalized and complete experience. Founded in 2015 in Athens, Greece, Welcome goes above and beyond the commoditized transfer service being 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 accommodates all their travel needs, including transfers, sightseeing trips, and local information, in the easiest, friendliest, and most personalized way possible. Welcome’s drivers are experts in the area and share their local know-how to make travelers feel at home wherever they are. The company has also introduced contactless rides, thorough cleaning protocols, and protective equipment to make every journey safe.
Welcome has safely transported over 3 million travelers in more than 58 destinations around the world, including 1 million travelers in 2019 alone. 98% of those who travel with Welcome have rated its service as “Excellent”, making Welcome Pickups the new standard for in-destination travel services.
If you feel you are one of those stellar A-players who can join our mission and help us expand Welcome on a global scale we are waiting to hear from you.
We are a group of vibrant diverse people who love traveling and never settle on quality. Each one of us didn’t join Welcome by chance, and believes deeply in what Welcome is trying to achieve, so we work relentlessly to make that happen. We challenge common logic, focus on design, putting simplicity and usability first, and creating memorable experiences. We keep learning and exploring better ways to serve our community and grow personally and professionally in our respective fields. We stay humble along the way, with a “pay it forward” mentality, but with big and bold goals.
