The partnership brings CLEAR’s identity platform to hotels for a seamless and secure experience directly within Virdee’s platform, solidifying Virdee as the leading solution for a fully contactless check-in experience
NEW YORK and AUSTIN, Texas – September 20, 2022 – Virdee has announced it will implement CLEAR’s (NYSE: YOU) secure identity platform to power its industry leading digital, self-service check-in solutions. The partnership marks the first integration within the hotel space for CLEAR and its 13 million members.
CLEAR is now integrated into Virdee’s suite of solutions as its preferred method for identity verification, strengthening the ease, security, and holistic reach of Virdee’s platform. While checking into a hotel, existing CLEAR Members will verify their identity with a photo – while new users enroll for free with a few simple steps. As verified guests complete check in on the Virdee platform, they can process payment, customize the stay, receive a mobile or physical key, and head straight to room without stopping at the front desk.
The partnership enables a seamless and predictable travel experience from air travel to car transportation to hotel check-in, avoiding long lines along the way.
“We are so excited to launch this first-of-its-kind partnership with Virdee. This partnership is an ideal opportunity to offer travelers a quick and seamless hotel check-in experience – no more waiting in long lines to prove you are you,” said CLEAR EVP for Growth, Catesby Perrin.
“We’re excited to help hotels catch up with the self-service digital innovation happening in other verticals of travel. This partnership is a step toward creating a seamless digital experience across all touchpoints of the traveler journey,” said Virdee Co-Founder Nadav Cornberg. “In addition, hotel owners gain yet another solution to help them improve guest satisfaction and increase efficiencies.”
