GoEuro, a Berlin, Germany-based platform for planning and booking all rail, bus and air transportation, closed a $45m Series B funding round.
The round was led by Goldman Sachs with participation from new investors including Atomico, Yuri Milner and Tom Stafford, Sebastian Siemiatkowski (Klarna) and Ilkka Paananen (Supercell).
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth through 2016 and beyond, with a focus on investment in new partner integrations, product development, continuing to hire new talent, and customer acquisition both within Europe and globally.
Led by Naren Shaam, Founder and CEO, GoEuro operates a travel platform that allows travellers from more than 120 countries to search and book – in 15 languages – the most convenient journeys with over 40 railway companies, over 300 bus operators and all airlines, while helping operators reach new customers from all over the world.
The company, which now operates in 11 countries across Europe with a combined population of 400 million, has developed proprietary technology to present all rail, bus, air transportation options, thereby creating a unified source of information for all consumer travel needs.
