Taiwanese travel e-commerce platform KKday has raised a US$10.5 million Series B funding round led by Japanese travel giant H.I.S.
The funds will go towards growing KKday’s Asian operations, reaching into US and European consumer markets, as well as enhancing product offerings and customer experience.
Commenting on the deal, founder and CEO of KKday, Ming Ming Chen, said: “In the market of travel experience platform globally, there are no giants yet like Expedia and Agoda for hotel reservation platforms. KKday decided to partner with Japan’s travel giant H.I.S. to strengthen its market positioning as the leading company in the market of travel experiences platform in Asia.”
Existing KKday investor, MindWorks Ventures, also participated in this funding round.
