Multi-mode travel website GoEuro has completed a full launch in the UK thanks to a tie-up with coach operator National Express.
Users of the service can now compare coach routes and prices side-by-side with rail and air on the site.
GoEuro was designed to help travellers find the most efficient way to travel from one location to another by comparing and combining air, rail and coach travel in one place.
The site allows travellers to plot routes from and to villages or towns in any location. It was particularly useful for getting to and from destinations which are not serviced by airports.
The site launched in May and says it has seen exceptional growth. The partnership with National Express brings the UK in line with the rest of GoEuro’s European offering by also including coach routes.
The partnership with GoEuro also includes National Express’s European operator Eurolines which travels to major cities such as Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam.
Naren Shaam, chief executive of GoEuro, said: “The full launch of GoEuro in the UK is a huge milestone for us.
“Each one of the thousands of routes National Express runs will now be completely searchable on GoEuro, letting travellers plot the fastest or cheapest routes to destinations within the UK and across Europe.”
“National Express is the largest coach company in the Europe and services hundreds of local towns, which makes it the perfect addition to GoEuro’s product.
“Not only will this let us offer an even better service in the UK, but the addition of Eurolines boosts our entire European offering.”
Tom Stables, managing director of National Express, said: “GoEuro, an innovative online technology company, fits perfectly with National Express’ strategy of expanding our international distribution through effective online partnerships to drive incremental revenue for our business.
“GoEuro’s growing popularity and high overseas visitor traffic allows National Express to reach new and relevant customers in highly targeted way.”
