Handiscover, a startup to help people find and book accessible hotel rooms and rental properties, has raised $700,000 to expand its business in Europe.
The round was led by Howzat Partners with participation from Tranquility Capital as well as previous investors including Entreprenörinvest, Almi Invest and business angels.
Founded in 2015, Handiscover now has more than 28,000 vacation rentals and hotels in 83 countries on its platform. The system classifies accommodations based on their level of accessibility, so travelers with reduced mobility or special needs can search for suitable properties.
In June, Handiscover announced an agreement with Amadeus to add that company’s hotel inventory to its system.
In November 2017, Airbnb acquired Accomable, another accessible accommodations platform. Airbnb says it is integrating Accomable’s listings into its system and improving search functions for accessible listings.
