We had a great experience with Both of our riders Perlikis and Dimitris. Very professional and very polite. Also great drivers. We felt so happy that they convinced us to go back again. Definitely recommend Welcome Pickups in Greece.

In this town, you aren’t getting Uber (yet), so it’s taxis or the Metro. Our hotel offered a “car service” to get us at the airport, Welcome Pickups. As it turned out, there was a taxi strike that started right before we landed. So we...More

I am happy you had a good experience with "Welcome Pickups". I had a terrible experience on the 27th of April this year with the same company. Not only did they not pick me up but they refused to refund the Euro 35 I had paid in advance. To add insult to injury they do not respond to my emails. If you pay this company in advance you take all risks should the flight be delayed even when they have all your flight details. In any resolutions they are the prosecutor, jury and judge. You have no choice but to accept their decisions. I would strongly recommend that you use the regular taxis to and from Madrid airport. They are not only professional and clean but they are cheaper, they charge only Euro 30. I consider Welcome Pickups a fraud - they should not be allowed to operate the business they way they do. It is quite frankly criminal.
