We’re excited to announce our brand new partnership with Blueground, the real estate tech company offering innovative renting solutions. When you rent a Blueground apartment, you’ll have the option to book a Welcome Pickups transfer to your new home. Everything will be taken care of for you from the moment you book to make sure your moving experience is as safe and seamless as possible.
What does Blueground do?
Blueground offers beautifully furnished and thoughtfully equipped apartments, so you can feel at home wherever you choose to go. You can rent for a month, a year, or even longer, and the apartments have been designed to make sure you have everything you need to start living from the get-go. No more faffing about with bills and complex contracts.
Blueground allows you to rent on your own terms, so the lease is completely flexible. With over 3,500 apartments in twelve cities, you can find the perfect apartment for you. The homes are centrally-based and are fully equipped for refined living.
How does this partnership mean for Blueground guests?
For Blueground customers in Dubai, Athens, Istanbul, and Paris, this partnership means the stress-free experience now stretches beyond the apartment. When you rent an apartment with Blueground, you’ll now have the option to book a private transfer with Welcome Pickups to take you straight to your door.
We’ll make sure your journey to and from your new home is safe and comfortable. No need to worry about delays if you’re travelling from abroad – the drivers will wait for you to arrive. They’ll also share heaps of advice on the local area, so you’ll feel right at home.
How does the integration work?
A few days prior to your arrival, you’ll receive an email with a link to the Welcome Pickups transfer page. Here, you can book a private transfer to your new home. The process is very straightforward and only takes a few seconds to complete.
You’ll receive your driver’s details, including a photo, up to 24 hours before you arrive, so you know exactly who to expect. On the day of arrival, your driver will greet you at your chosen collection point to take you to your new apartment.
Safe transfers and safe homes
Providing comfortable and safe homes is a top priority for Blueground. That’s why thorough cleaning and disinfection procedures are in place before entering an apartment, while on-premise and upon departing. Moreover, if being on-site is not a requirement, their support can be fully contactless and offered via the app, phone or email. All procedures are in alignment with CDC & WHO guidelines.
At the same time, Welcome Pickups has introduced contactless rides and protective equipment to make sure every journey is safe, so you can request to have zero contact with the driver when you book. All surfaces in the car will have been thoroughly cleaned before arrival too, as our drivers take 20 minutes between every journey to sanitise and disinfect their vehicle.
Welcome Pickups is here to bring you the best in-destination travel experience possible. Our partnerships are chosen carefully to give you just that. Right now, we know getting around can be even more stressful than normal, so we’re doing more with our partners to keep you safe and secure.
You can continue to count on us to make travel easier, friendlier, and more personalised. We look forward to welcoming you for your next ride soon.
