Holidays can be hard to plan – if you’re not familiar with the place you’re going yet, how do you know what you’ll like? The Munich-based startup Fineway takes the guesswork out of travel planning with its AI-based conversational service, which allows users to make hyper-personalised travel plans within minutes.
Fineway’s purpose is to deliver perfectly tailored travel experiences to your inbox instantly, at no cost. To do this, the platform aggregates over 250 data points, including hard facts, deliberate and unconscious personal preferences, dislikes, room styles, travel intents, and more. And by using machine learning, the platform is constantly evolving and improving the options it offers to its users.
Founded in 2015, the Fineway has just increased its Series A round raised in early November with an additional €6 million, bringing the total round size to €13 million. Investors in the company include Axel Springer, Bayern Kapital and MairDumont Ventures. The startup currently employs 65 people, and is already generating seven-digits in revenue every month.
