Depending on the Trip Reservation, we might also ask for your home address, phone number, payment info, date of birth, the names of any guests traveling with you, and any preferences (e.g. meal preferences, mobility restrictions) you have for your Trip.
If you need to get in touch with our customer service team, contact your Trip Provider through us, or reach out to us in a different way (e.g. social media), we’ll collect info from you there, too. This applies whether you’re contacting us with feedback or asking for help using our services.
You might also be invited to write reviews to help inform others about the experiences you had on your Trip. When you write a review on the WeTrip.pk platform, we’ll collect any info you’ve included, along with your display name and avatar (if you choose one).
There are other instances where you’ll provide us with info, as well. For example, if you’re browsing with your mobile device, you can decide to allow WeTrip.pk to see your current location or grant us access to your contacts. This helps us give you the best possible service and experience by, for example, showing you our city guides, suggesting restaurants and attractions close to your location, or making other recommendations.
If you create a user account, we’ll also store your personal settings, uploaded photos, and reviews of previous bookings. This saved data can be used to help you plan and manage future Trip Reservations or benefit from other features only available to account holders, such as incentives or other benefits.
We may offer you referral programs or sweepstakes. Participating in these will involve providing us with relevant personal data.
Of course, you might not just be making a Trip Reservation for yourself. You might be taking a Trip with other people or making a reservation on someone else’s behalf. In both scenarios, you’ll provide their details as part of the Trip Reservation.
If you have a WeTrip.pk for Business account, you can also keep an address book to make it easier to plan and manage business travel arrangements for others.
In some cases, you might use WeTrip.pk to share info with others. This can take the form of sharing a wish list or participating in a referral program, as described when you use the relevant feature.
At this point, we have to make it clear that it’s your responsibility to ensure that the person or people you provide personal data about are aware that you’ve done so and that they’ve understood and accepted how WeTrip.pk uses their info (as described in this Privacy Statement).

It’s not just the things you tell us, though – we may also receive info about you from other sources. These include business partners, such as affiliate partners, subsidiaries of the WeTrip.pk corporate group. Anything we receive from these partners may be combined with info provided by you. For example, WeTrip.pk Trip Reservation services aren’t only made available via WeTrip.pk and the WeTrip.pk apps, but are also integrated into services of affiliate partners you can find online. When you use any of these services, you provide the reservation details to our business partners who then forward your details to us.
We also integrate with third party service providers to facilitate payments between you and Trip Providers. These service providers share payment information, so we can administer and handle your Trip Reservation, making sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for you.
We also collect info when we receive a complaint about you from a Trip Provider (e.g. in the case of misconduct).
Another way we might receive data about you is through the communication services integrated into our platforms. These communication services offer you a way to contact the Trip Provider you’ve booked with to discuss your stay. In some cases, we receive metadata about these communication activities (e.g. who you are, where you called from, and the date and length of the call).
We may also receive info about you in order to show you more relevant ads, such as the additional cookie data WeTrip.pk social media partners make available to us.

When you register with a WeTrip.pk social media app or connect to a social media messaging service without a WeTrip.pk user account, the info you choose to share with us may include the basic info available in your social media profile, including your email, status updates, and a list of your contacts.

It means that—if you want us to—we can customize our services to fit your needs, connecting you and your friends to the best travel destinations, as well as analyzing and enhancing our travel-related services.
