Snaptravel , Toronto Travel startup, is super cool to use as you can just your Facebook messenger to talk to their smart AI enabled bot to secure the best deals on hotel websites around the world.
So it comes no surprise that they secured additional $13.2m on top of existing $8m to raise capital all the way $21.2m.
Even famous NBA star player Stephen Curry who plays for Golden State Warrior has decided to invest in the Toronto startup.
Snaptravel Co-founder and CEO Hussein Fazal said:
“Online hotel booking is an incredibly transactional and noisy process, where pop-ups and expiring offers inundate consumers. We are reimagining this experience – making booking hotels feel as natural and personal as talking to a friend. Beyond travel, we’re at the start of a shift in which consumers no longer shop on individual websites or apps, but entirely via conversations with brands.”
Not surprisingly customers have used their app to book over 350,000 nights at 35,000 different hotels across 5,800 cities.
Congrats Snaptravel – thanks for making Toronto great place to do business for startups. Sweet Travels.
