Berlin-based travel site GoEuro bags multi-million dollar funding
Berlin-based travel comparison platform GoEuro today announced a multi-million dollar investment led by Lakestar and including an unnamed angel investor from the travel industry. The exact amount of the deal was not disclosed.
GoEuro, which allows users to compare the price and journey time of air, rail, and bus travel options in a single search, has had a bumper year.
The startup launched in May 2013 after announcing $4 million in seed funding from Hasso Plattner Ventures and Battery Ventures. It has since expanded its service beyond Germany to both the UK and Spain.
The startup claims it now serves almost 23,000 locations in these countries. It will use the latest funding round to launch in four more markets by summer 2014. In fact, GoEuro already has a position open on its jobs page for an Italian country manager.
