Flocations secures $600,000 funding round, aims to integrate hotels into visual search platform
Search-by-price-on-maps service Flocations has raised almost $600,000 in pre-series funding as it looks to expand its initial service to include hotel product.
The current Flocations site allows users to find getaways and short-haul breaks around South East Asia using a series of interactive tools on a map.
Flocations founder Tudor Coman says the funding round will support its effort to integrate hotel content into the same platform.
“This means users can search for a whole vacation just by putting in their price and also lets them discover places they never even thought of within seconds!”
NB: Flocations was won of two winners at the THack @ WIT Singapore event in October this year.
