HomeAway leads $20 million investment round in Gogobot
Vacation rental service HomeAway has doubled-down on content, reviews and recommendations for its guests by leading a $20 million Series C investment round in social review engine Gogobot.
Other participants in the round including Battery Ventures and Redpoint Ventures.
The Gogobot integration promises to offer a more engaging and accurate destination experience for guests, as they can tap into the knowledge base on 60,000 locations to learn about the most recommended places in-destination. These recommendations include restaurants and activities, curated by Gogobot’s community of travelers and experts.
This integration follows on from last year’s Insider Guides product which allowed customized guides to be created for HomeAway property listings.
