Denmark-based startup Tryp.com plans to use new seed funding to scale the company and grow its travel-planning platform.
The investment, which Tryp.com would only confirm is “more than half a million euros,” was led by Jacob Gade, Jens Schumann, Ben Cavender and Next Commerce Accelerator, who joined previous investors Vækstfonden, Frederik Siesbye Halsted, Jeppe Vestergaard Frandsen, Ali Marvi and the Innovation Fund Denmark.
“We are committed to using this funding to grow our team, enhance our technology and expand our reach to enable more people to experience the joy of travel,” says Inês Jorge, Tryp.com’s co-founder and head of data.

Tryp.com says its search engine selects from more than 6,000 possible destinations to access "thousands of flights, trains, buses and hotels in real-time, comparing prices, locations and schedules to build the best possible trip for you.”
Packages include transportation such as flights, trains and buses and can come with or without accommodations.
Founded in 2019, the startup had previously raised a total of €350,000, including a November 2022 seed round, according to Crunchbase. The company says this latest financing puts its current valuation at €8.3 million.
“With this new capital, we are excited to scale our company and grow our platform to become the go-to destination for planning trips from anywhere to everywhere,” says André Sousa, co-founder and CEO of Tryp.com.
Tryp.com has “reached more than 1 million users in the last 12 months, which proves the incredible potential of the platform,” Sousa says.
