Gimv invests EUR 16.2 million in Easyvoyage, the largest French travel site for information and price comparison
Gimv invests EUR 16.2 million in the French group Easyvoyage as part of a mixed operation in which new capital is raised and existing capital is restructured. Easyvoyage (www.easyvoyage.com) was founded in 2000 by Jean-Pierre Nadir. Making use of the experience he gained in the publishing business, he developed an original model for portal sites: the group’s web sites combine comparison engines with several filters (flights, all-in, hotels,…), and extensive, mainly proprietary, content provided by about 20 in-house journalists. Thanks to its independent and thorough information, Easyvoyage forms a vital link between internet users and online shops (travel agencies, tour operators,…).
