GetYourGuide closes Series D funding, steps up Asia expansion

Berlin-based online booking platform for travel activities, GetYourGuide, has closed a US$75 million Series D funding round and is stepping up its Asian presence.

The latest round was led by Battery Ventures and all of GetYourGuide’s existing venture partners, including KKR, Spark Capital, Highland Europe, Sunstone Capital and Nokia Growth Partners (NGP).

GetYourGuide has more than 31,000 tours, activities and attractions in more than 7,300 destinations around the world in its database

The new capital will be applied toward international expansion and technological development.

“We are experiencing explosive growth this year and have stepped up to become the largest online booking platform for travel activities,” said Johannes Reck, CEO of GetYourGuide. “It’s our goal to significantly disrupt the in-destination travel experience in the years ahead.”

The booking platform has launched four new domains – Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Mexican Spanish – for its platform, bringing the total number of languages supported on GetYourGuide to 18.

Earlier this year, the company opened regional offices in Hong Kong and Bangkok.
