Evaneos attempts to improve travelers’ planning experience and save them money by cutting out expensive intermediary tour operators and connect travelers to the local destination boards that they probably don’t know exist.
Evaneos, a French startup that competes with traditional tour operators by providing a marketplace for tailored travel experiences, has raised $6 million in Series B funding. The round is being led by XAnge Private Equity, with participation from previous investor ISAI.
Founded by Eric La Bonnardière (CEO) and Yvan Wibaux (CTO), Evaneos provides an online platform to help travellers design, estimate the cost, and book a personalised trip by connecting them with local agents in each destination country, who then offer advice and assistance.
