It’s been a tough few years for Omio, the Berlin-based travel search and booking platform that saw 98% of its revenues evaporate overnight when COVID-19 hit Europe back in Spring 2020. But the company kept on trucking and has found some light at the end of the tunnel: Today it’s reporting revenues which have rebounded to more than double pre-pandemic levels. It’s also announcing close of an $80M Series E.
The E round includes backing from some new investors including Lazard Asset Management and Stack Capital Group. Existing investors reupping their support for the almost decade-old business include NEA, Temasek, and funds managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, amongst others.
It’s Omio’s first funding since a $100M convertible note it took in just under two years ago to see it through the first waves of the coronavirus crisis. In all, it’s raised around $480M since being founded back in 2013.
The new funding will be put towards reviving global expansion…
