Asia-Pacific metasearch site Wego has grabbed a Series B funding package from US-based private equity group Tiger Global Management.
The investment round is currently undisclosed but also coincides with the merger today of Wego and Indian content community site HolidayIQ.com.
Wego CEO Martin Symes is giving little away except to say the two companies are merging fully into a single entity both on the management and equity side, with the new organisation to be based in Wego's current home, Singapore.
Tiger Global Management is a significant private equity firm, having invested $10 million in travel site Anywayanyday in July 2010 and a hefty $180 million in gaming platform Zynga in December 2009.
Wego was founded by Craig Hewett and Ross Veitch in 2005 (under its original name Berzurk) and is a growing player in the Asia-Pacific region.
HolidayIQ claims it is largest travel community in India, having launched in 2004 under the brand name India Resorts Survey. It began as a feedback service but has since evolved into a fully fledged community service.
