- Zoombu is a travel search engine that provides users with travel routes by comparing routes across multiple modes of transport.
Zoombu is a travel search engine that finds the best door-to-door route from home to destination. Given a pair of addresses and dates of travel, Zoombu searches thousands of routes across multiple modes of transport (including flights, trains, ferries, coaches, driving, parking, taxis and more) and pieces together possible journeys. Users can browse all routes, see total price and duration breakdowns, filter results according to preferences for certain modes of transport or budget, then click through to a supplier to make a booking.
Zoombu's beta was opened to the public in Spring 2010 and currently has richest transportation coverage within western Europe and basic coverage for flights + transfers around the world.
Zoombu was selected as a Seedcamp 2008 finalist, was voted Best Travel Start-up at the Eye for Travel Summit in 2009 and winner of the Said Business School Venture Fund in 2009.
