Switchfly has stepped into a sweet spot for airlines, hotels, and other travel providers with a mix of customer insights and social media tools that help explain behaviors in ways that will help build loyalty.
Switchfly has raised $2.8 million, adding to the $15 million it raised this spring and completing its Series C financing.
A new investor participated in this portion of the round: Thayer Ventures, a San Francisco venture capital firm that was formerly Quest Hospitality Ventures. The Switchfly deal is part of Thayer Ventures’ strategy to invest in companies disrupting traditional hospitality sector models — with more to come in 2013.
