Russia-based online packages specialist Level.Travel has confirmed funding of US$600,000 from local businessman Sergey Vatutin.
Vatutin has himself founded a number of travel and tourism businesses including portal Turizm.ru and a travel agencies chain called 1001 tour.
Level.Travel plans to use the funds to develop further features for the site such as search tools, as well as add more destinations and bring more tour operators on board.
The company, which was founded in 2012, is also developing a mobile application as it sees increasing traffic from mobile devices to its site.
Level.Travel recently secured a partnership to supply package tour content to Yandex, which launched a package holidays service in response to the current popularity for bundled services.
