Virdee, CLEAR partner for frictionless check-in

Virdee will implement CLEAR’s secure identity platform to power its 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. While checking into a hotel, existing CLEAR members will verify their identity with a photo, while new users can enroll for free. 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 their room without stopping at the front desk.

“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 Catesby Perrin, EVP for growth, CLEAR.

“This partnership is a step toward creating a seamless digital experience across all touchpoints of the traveler journey,” said Virdee cofounder Nadav Cornberg. “In addition, hotel owners gain yet another solution to help them improve guest satisfaction and increase efficiencies.”
