With this new partnership Liknoss adds to its digital platform a new transportation service with global presence in over 31 countries and 62 destinations.
Travel agencies and ferry companies that have access to the Liknoss technology platform will be able to offer personalized transportation services to and from airports and ports after the new partnership with the Greek start-up Welcome Pickups.
The new integration is part of the company's digital strategic plan to provide its partners with technologically advanced services that offer an improved end-to-end travel experience. More specifically, the travel agencies and ferry companies that are part of Liknoss business network will be able from now on to offer their clients the option to book online their personalized transfer to and from airports and ports, easily and quickly.
Upon completion of the booking process through a dedicated website of Liknoss and Welcome Pickups, the users will be automatically informed by email with all the details of the professional driver who will pick them up, ensuring high standards of safety and quality. It is worth noting that all drivers are experts on the area and share their local know-how to make travellers feel at home wherever they are, while the price of the service will be at the same level as a common taxi.
Michael Mavropoulos, CEO of Liknoss stated: "At Liknoss we continue to dynamically expand our partnerships with digital platforms and technology service companies that evolve the overall experience of travellers. We are happy for our cooperation with Welcome pickups, a successful Greek start-up that is growing internationally" to add "our goal is for our partners to offer combined services that create added value for their customers and an additional revenue stream".
Savvas Georgiou, Co-founder and Product Director of Welcome Pickups said: "The agreement with Liknoss is another proof that the investment we continue to make in our technology has made Welcome Pickups services very easily accessible and manageable, also for partners with a large network of clients in the Tourism Sector".
