Wego, the online travel marketplace in the MENA region, has unveiled WegoPro, a platform designed to simplify business travel and expense management for companies globally. This announcement follows the acquisition of Travelstop by Wego in September 2023, solidifying Wego's commitment to providing travel solutions to businesses in the region.
WegoPro is set to debut in seven key markets in the MENA region, including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, and Egypt. The rebranding aligns with Wego's vision to capitalise on the growing demand for modern and innovative business travel solutions in the region.
