Omio buys Rival Rome2Rio in mashup of door-to-door booking sites

Omio said it partners with 800 transport operators in Europe while search via Rome2Rio accesses information from some 5,000 providers in more than 160 countries.

Rome2Rio, which was supposed to be part of the next big thing in trip planning and travel booking, appears to have made a relatively soft landing — one source called it a “fire sale” — into the waiting clutches of its Berlin-based rival, Omio.

The Melbourne, Australia-based Rome2Rio, which has loaded up on travel industry innovation awards since its founding nearly a decade ago, specializes in so-called multi-model travel, taking users from their homes or businesses via cars, trains, planes, ferries, and buses to their destinations.

The deal was not a fire sale, according to a spokesperson from Omio. “The founders/shareholders were very happy with the overall outcome,” the spokesperson said. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

SimilarWeb data measured Rome2Rio’s visits at more than 18 million on desktop and mobile in September compared with more than 6 million for Omio, which was formerly known as GoEuro.
