Zoombu finally opens its tightly locked doors to the public
Fledgling metasearch engine Zoombu, which has been in private beta for months, has drawn back the curtains to finally reveal its product to the wider world.
The main principles behind the business, which is the brainchild of co-founders Rachel Armitage and Alistair Hann, are travel search using point-to-point (zip/postcodes) and the way results are presented.
Users can get results based on the quickest, cheapest or greenest options using a variety of methods of transport, including air, rail and taxi.
The site is currently limited to European destinations but Zoombu says it has plans to extend to North America at some point in the future.
