We’re Going Places - Raising $484 Million in Series E Funding

We’ve been on an incredible journey over the past ten years and we’re delighted to announce $484 million in Series E funding.
The next step? Bringing you more of the experiences you love in more places around the world. Read here about the new unicorn on the block right here.

We’re happy to announce our $484 million in Series E funding led by the SoftBank Vision Fund, with co-investors Temasek, Lakestar and Heartcore Capital (formerly Sunstone Capital).

The investment allows us to continue developing and growing into a world leading travel experiences brand and comes at a time where we’ve already reached great milestones. E.g. reaching over 25 million tickets sold, being recognized as 2018 Most Innovative Company by Fast Company, and launching GetYourGuide Originals, exclusive branded products built in partnership with top tour operators. Within the year, Originals is planned to expand to 25 new destinations, and we’ll continue to perfect the product.

 And we are just getting started as our CEO and co-founder, Johannes, states, “Today’s consumers prioritize seeking and sharing experiences over material possessions, and we expect this trend to accelerate in the years ahead.”

We are so excited about the journey ahead of us and now’s the perfect time to come join the fun. Check out our open positions here.
