    Incredible funding for an average site with a terrible name but goes to show once you got your face on the scene with another start up “bob’s your uncle”

    great funding for sure. average site – well, maybe not. frm what i can see of travel sites this one certainly stands out as different and inspirational. clearly a nice focus on a huge and fragmented space which might have got the VCs excited!
