Welcome Pickups x keeano: beach travel made easy

We’re excited to announce a new collaboration with keeano, the social coastline guide. Now you can enjoy safe, reliable private transfers to stunning Mediterranean beaches. Booked in seconds from the comfort of the keeano app. Your upcoming summer beach break is about to get a whole lot more convenient.

What does keeano do?

Keeano lets you explore over 5,000 Mediterranean beaches through aerial viewpoints. This innovative app offers more 800,000 helicopter viewpoint photos and lets you sort beaches according to 46 different characteristics.  All so you can find the perfect beach or tranquil bay for your trip – and avoid unwelcome surprises when you get there. The app also helps you to find anchorage or over-land directions. Search for beaches by mood, personal interest or location. It’s a whole new approach to travel planning.

This new collaboration is set to benefit customers everywhere. For keeano users, it means an even easier life. A high-quality transfer service at an affordable price. No hidden extras, no haggling and no stress when you arrive in an unfamiliar location. In other words, it makes for a seamless travel experience.

For new and loyal Welcome Pickups guests, it means even more transfer options. From airports, transport hubs to sightseeing, beaches and leisure travel. An easy way to leave home for a little (or a lot of) adventure. And in the times of coronavirus, it also offers contactless travel with a professional and friendly driver.

How does the integration work?

And here’s how it works:

  1. In your keeano profile, set your transportation mode to ‘By land’. Welcome Pickups doesn’t offer boat transfers (yet).
  2. Explore the app to find an amazing beach. You can search by personal interests or mood to find the ideal location for you.
  3. Once you’ve chosen a destination go to the location page. Tap ‘Get directions’ and choose ‘Book your transfer’. You’ll be redirected to a pre-filled booking page on the Welcome Pickups platform. What could be easier?

Good news: this new service launches on Wednesday, 12 August 2020, just in time for the rest of the 2020 summer season. The launch locations are Athens, Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Paros, Zakynthos and Rhodes. You can download the keeano app both from App Store and Google Play Store.

Welcome Pickups has been at the forefront of innovation in the travel and tourism sector for years. Although no one could have anticipated a year like this one, we’re not slowing down. In fact, we want to do more than ever to keep people safe and protect livelihoods. And to contribute to a new era of faster, safer and more convenient travel. Looking forward to welcoming you for your next ride soon.
