Looking for a budgeted trip to Europe?? Then you are few clicks away from choosing the best possible options by the cheapest, quickest, and “smartest” routes rendering to your pocket and time. GoEuro, a Berlin based startup of two-year with website and mobile app, gets you anywhere across 11 Western European countries even in the smallest villages.
Villages?? YES. How cool is that 😀
GoEuro also reached to an agreement with France’s SNCF rail system to offer information and booking services on ALL of France’s trains which will expand the coverage and convenience of the service. Steering ground transportation which is usually unknown to foreign visitors can bring in a lot of convenience and cost effective trips resulting in increased volume of visitors to untapped villages which they did not plan to experience before.
Naren Shaam, CEO and co-founder – the India native has an MBA from Harvard and has worked in the States – plans a bigger momentum to reach U.S. consumers, having just completed a $45 million Series B funding round led by Goldman Sachs. His succeeding target is to add to existing markets like the U.K., Germany, Spain, and Italy, and to cover destinations such as Ireland, Portugal, Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe.
So all you have to do is type in the departure and destination points, the site simultaneously searches and compares all train, bus, and flight offerings—as well as a fourth alternative, car rentals. Though it is specialized in finding ground/air routes yet it gives you an opportunity to hunt for an accommodation with Airbnb and Booking.com along the way.
Don’t forget to visit the website to see it for yourselves and let me know what other travel apps you know are the best 😀
