Tour guide sourcing portal Get Your Guide raised an additional $194 million in equity and debt financing last week. The aim is to strengthen the market position with the additional funds.
Blue Pool Capital led the $85 million Series F funding round with participation from KKR and Temasek. UniCredit provided the $109 million revolving credit facility with participation from BNP Paribas, Citi and KfW.
“This funding round is a milestone for GetYourGuide and the beginning of a new chapter. Since the pandemic, we've come back as a significantly bigger and better company. Now we can implement our vision with a long-term perspective and strategic flexibility,” says Johannes Reck, CEO and co-founder of GetYourGuide. “We are still in the early stages of transforming the $300 billion travel experiences category and the even larger $1,5 trillion leisure activities market. Our technology is capable of driving innovation and growth for our partners and customers alike,” added Reck.
