Polish travel platform Hotailors raises €23M to expand internationally

The Warsaw-based business travel tech company Hotailors has raised €23 million from the Polish fund DC24 ASI. The startup is now planning to expand internationally and rebrand to WorkTrips.com, MamStartup writes.

  • Founded in 2016 by Filip Błoch, Michał Szeksztełło and Maciej Stopierzyński, Hotailors develops an AI-powered SaaS platform. It helps discover, organize, and supervise business travel for contractors and employees.
  • Hotailors claims to manage business travels ten times faster. The platform already offers flights and rides from over 900 airlines, buses, and trains. It operates in 2.2 million hotels worldwide, with 24/7 customer service and flexible invoicing.
  • In 2020, Hotailors secured a $3M funding round from the DialCom24 company, the creator of the Polish Przelewy24 payment service and owner of DC24 ASI fund.
  • With this fresh funding, the company will continue to grow in the global business travel market, including the US, Middle East, and Northern Africa regions. The firm is also rebranding to WorkTrips.com and launching new insurance and financial products.
