Kayak Acquires German Travel Search Engine Swoodoo

Posted May 6, 2010

Kayak has acquired Swoodoo, a German travel search engine. Kayak is very popular in the U.S., but does not see as much traffic in the Europe market. This will help make up for that gap. Swoodoo was founded in 2006 and is the market leader in online flight search in Germany. Back in December 2007 — Kayak raised $196 million in funding and acquired SideStep for $200 million. ?Both the management and the investors are very happy with the financial terms,? stated Swoodoo CEO Christian Saller.
