The UK-based travel startup Duffel has made a major funding announcement of securing €19.2 million in its Series A funding round. It is also set to soon unveil its online travel booking platform that it has been all mysterious about till now. The company says it is working on reinventing global travel booking systems for mobile and web travel companies but has refrained from revealing what it has been working on.
The latest round of Series A funding for Duffel was led by Benchmark, which is a venture capital firm based in San Francisco. Benchmark has also backed some other well-known startups like Google, Uber, WeWork, Snap and Instagram. Alongside Benchmark, this funding round was joined by Blossom Capital, which led Duffel’s seed investment with participation from Index Ventures. This is the third funding round for the startup, after its two initial seed rounds.
