Welcome Pickups partners with Paris Attitude

France / Greece: Travel mobility service Welcome Pickups has announced a partnership with high-end furnished rental apartment provider Paris Attitude.

As a result, guests who rent a property through Paris Attitude will have the option to book a Welcome Pickups transfer to their apartment. Welcome fully organise and manage the pick-up, from the moment they book to the drop-off, to make it as seamless an experience as possible.

Founded in 2001, Paris Attitude caters to short- and long-term rentals, providing more than 6,000 apartments in every arrondissement of Paris, ranging from studios to seven-room apartments, modern lofts or traditional Haussmann-style homes. Its furnished apartments are scattered around some of the most popular and picturesque parts of the French capital, such as Montmartre, the Eiffel Tower, Le Marais and Saint Germain.

Welcome Pickups’ drivers, which are hand-selected and trained by the company, are all fluent in English and can provide tips and insider information about what to see and where to go during their stay in Paris.

Paris Attitude CMO Michael Donteville said: “It’s very important to provide our tenants the best possible service from the beginning of their stay in Paris. By partnering with Welcome, we are elevating our guests’ experience and ensuring that their first feeling of Paris will be perfect.”

A few days prior to their arrival, guests receive an email holding a link to the Welcome Pickups transfer page where they can book a private transfer. Then, 24 hours before their arrival, guests will be sent the details of their driver, including a photo and telephone number, so they know exactly who to expect.

In addition, Welcome has a mobile app for guests to access live information concerning their trip, including driver information, a live meeting point monitor, and a live chat with one’s driver.

Savvas Georgiou, co-founder and product director of Welcome Pickups, was the guest for Episode Two of the ShortTermRentalz podcast last year, in which he talked about heightened attention on guest safety, the incoming automation of the check-in experience and whether or not the pandemic should be seen as a pause or a reset of the market.
