GoEuro, a Berlin, Germany-based travel planning startup, raised $27m in Series A funding.
The round was led by New Enterprise Associates with participation from existing backers Battery Ventures, Hasso Plattner Ventures and Lakestar. In conjunction with the funding, NEA General Partner Forest Baskett joined GoEuro’s board.
The company intends to use the funds to expand in European markets, to be opened later this year.
Led by Naren Shaam, Founder and CEO, GoEuro allows travelers to schedule trips on planes, trains and buses. They can plan routes from towns and villages, and then compare and combine air, rail and bus travel in a single search, thus eliminating the need to visit multiple websites to plan their entire journey.
The company currently operates in seven countries, Germany, UK, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg, providing coverage to 20,510 railway stations, 10,011 bus stations and 207 airports.
