VibeAgent Raises $3 Million For its Hotel Search Engine
Features 140,000 Hotels and Rates from 30+ Travel Sites
VibeAgent.com helps travelers find the perfect hotel at the best available price. The site searches over 30 leading travel and hotel sites to consolidate rates, availability, and hotel content on over 140,000 hotels, providing its users access to the largest hotel selection and best room rates available online. Travelers can use VibeAgent's real-time price, location, and category filters to determine which hotel best suits their needs, and then see consolidated room rates from all the searched sites. This saves travelers from having to visit multiple sites to find the right hotel at the best available rate.
VibeAgent allows registered users to post and share hotel reviews with their own network of friends and colleagues. The company has also just launched the VibeAgent Hotelier Suite, which allows hotels to post or claim their hotel and manage their content directly on its search engine.
Investors participating in VibeAgent's Series A round consist of a small group of prominent executives in the software, travel, and private equity industries. Their investment follows on the angel round of financing the company raised last year from Trip Davis, the CEO of TRX, a publicly-traded travel data processing company. He also sits on VibeAgent's Board of Directors along with the company's co-founders Adam Healey (CEO) and Charles Seilheimer (President and CFO). Davis also participated in the Series A investment round.
"VibeAgent tackles the biggest challenges travel consumers and hoteliers face," said Davis. "Consumers want access to the best information so they can make the right booking decision. Hoteliers and online travel agencies want to acquire customers through the most cost-effective channels. VibeAgent provides value to both parties. I believe this is the future of online travel."
