The $200 million acquisition of tours and attractions site Viator has been finalised by TripAdvisor.
Viator’s more than 250 staff will continue to work at the company’s headquarters in San Francisco and offices in Las Vegas, London and Sydney.
The company will continue to operate under the leadership of its CEO Barrie Seidenberg.
Viator is TripAdvisor’s fourth acquisition in 2014, following lafourchette, Tripbod and Vacation Home Rentals.
TripAdvisor CEO Stephen Kaufer said: “TripAdvisor’s scale combined with Viator’s strong network of global activities and attractions will allow us to help even more travellers plan and have the perfect trip.
“Along with the acquisition of online restaurant booking site lafourchette earlier this summer, we’re eager to leverage these powerful booking assets to provide the most comprehensive travel-planning experience for our global community of millions of travellers, both online and via mobile.”
Seidenberg said: “Our teams and goals are highly compatible, and as we move ahead leveraging our shared focus on speed, agility and innovation, we look forward to developing the resources and products travellers need to make every trip unforgettable – anytime they travel, just about everywhere in the world.”
