GetYourGuide’s $75 million Series D funding round

Tours-and-activities booking platform GetYourGuide has secured a $75 million Series D funding round.

The Berlin-based company has now raised $175.5 million since its founding in 2009.

Leading the investment is Battery Ventures, a first-tier U.S. firm that has invested in several travel start-ups like ITA Software, a technology firm later bought by Google; and Sabre Holdings, a technology company that later went public; HotelTonight; Duetto; Gogobot; (which was just acquired by Ctrip), IHS, and Go Euro.

GetYourGuide’s previous investors also participated, such as KKR, Spark Capital, Highland Europe, Sunstone Capital, and Nokia Growth Partners.

Bär & Karrer acted as Swiss legal advisor to KKR in this transaction with a team led by Christoph Neeracher (picture), alongside Luca Jagmetti and Raphael Annasohn (all M&A).
