Yesterday, travel startups HotelTonight and GetYourGuide announced major funding rounds, and both of the travel startups are now well into double-digit millions on the amounts they’ve raised so far — HotelTonight may soon even touch $100 million mark.

That gave us an idea to compile a list of all the biggest venture-funded startups currently in travel and we came up with this list of 31 companies, with the lowest cutoff of around $20 million.

Some observations:

  • Airbnb and Uber, never really billed as travel startups per se, are the two biggest venture-backed startups that exist now across tech, not just the travel tech sector.
  • Chinese car rental, sharing, and booking companies have raised huge amounts to compete on scale.
  • Russian booking companies have raised large amounts to compete in an especially competitive market.
  • In general, room sharing and car sharing requires lot of investment to build, disrupt, and compete.
  • Only four B2B startups are on this list. Surprisingly, two are aimed at the intersection of travel transactions and advertising/retargeting.
  • Hotel booking is where the big action is on the traditional online booking transactions side.
  • On the investors side, some of the active funds on the larger sized rounds include Andreessen Horowitz,¬†General Catalyst, Accel Partners, and Goldman Sachs.
  • In the earlier stages, Crunchfund surprisingly is the most active in this list, with Ron Conway’s SV Angel investing alongside for most part.¬†First Round Capital pops up on that list as well.
  • Concur is the only active strategic investor in travel’s biggest startups.
  • Almost all of the big startups in travel were started in the last five years.
