DreamLines sails into new capital round with ex-Kayak executive leading
Christian Saller, who joined Kayak as part of its acquisition of metasearch site Swoodoo in May 2010 and later became its managing director for Europe, is now a partner at Holtzbrinck Ventures and led the investment in NetVacation, parent company behind the DreamLines services.
DreamLines was launched in 2012 and operates mostly in Germany with Italy, France, Australia, Russia and Brazil also having their own versions of the site.
It currently carries around 30,000 cruise products covering short-term river excursions to round-the-world trips.
The company claims the investment will help in its ambitions to become a “global leader in the online cruise market”.
