Why would I want to modify my booking?
Reason 1. Change of Plans
You may wish to modify your booking for the simple reason that your plans have changed. Perhaps instead of arriving in the afternoon you changed your flight to arrive at midnight. Perhaps due to an overbooked hotel you need to be dropped off at a different destination.
Reason 2. Wrong information input while booking
Another reason that you may need to change your booking is in case there was missing or insufficient information provided during the original booking process. In that case, we will inform you in the emails you will receive from us in a bright red box that prompts you to edit your booking. All you have to do is click on the edit button and fix the wrong information in your booking details page.
If you try to access your booking directly through the Welcome Pickups Traveler app,
you will again be able to see if there is any missing or incorrect information as shown below
If for some reason the information you are being requested to change is not wrong (i.e. a non-recognizable flight number), please contact our support team to let us know via our chat bubble. To do that, click the chat bubble on the bottom right corner of this page (once in the chat bubble, click on the "I need help with a transfer" option).
By when is a Modification to a booked transfer allowed?
Modification of your booking online is allowed up to a certain time prior to the scheduled pickup time, depending on the destination.
When the Edit & Cancel cutoff times have been exceeded, you will no longer be able to Edit your transfer or Cancel with a refund.
In some rare cases, an exception could be made (for example if the pickup time is changed to 15 minutes later) however these are evaluated on a case by case basis and you would need to contact your assigned driver directly via the Driver/Traveler chat or via Whatsapp to check their availability.
In more severe and Urgent (last minute flight changes or large delays of over 12 hours) cases we advise you to contact our Support team .
You will need to click on the chat bubble at the bottom right and a pop up window will appear.
Afterward, you will click on the "I need help with a transfer" option in the "Are you a traveler?" section:
Editing a booked transfer with price difference
If your changes do not change the transfer price you will see the No Extra Cost note and you can complete your Editing by clicking on the Save changes button.
If your changes yield an extra charge or a refund, you will see the extra charge amount/refund amount and be prompted to Continue to the payment of the extra charges/refund in order to finalize your changes. The reasons for pricing changes will be mentioned under the price amount and include reasons such as different route, night time tariff, holiday pricing etc.
Once you save the changes a pop-up window will notify you of the refund
Asking your driver to make changes for you
Finally, if you are having trouble making these modifications yourself, you may always reach out to your assigned driver directly via the Driver/Traveler chat or via Whatsapp so the assigned driver is able to make these changes on your behalf. In any case, you will be prompted to confirm the changes once requested by the driver. In an event where a change may warrant an extra charge, you will see this information displayed in the change confirmation email as seen below:
