Germany-based Omio - formerly GoEuro - is taking a major
step forward in its global expansion strategy with its launch today of service
in the United States and Canada.
Customers in North America can now use Omio’s app or
website to compare prices and schedules and complete bookings for thousands of train,
bus and flight routes.
The service is launching with providers that include Amtrak,
VIA Rail Canada, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, OurBus and Academy; more
routes and providers will be added in the coming months.

“The U.S. and Canada are great markets for a product like
Omio, which enables millions of people to compare prices across different
transportation options and plan their travel easily with a single product,”
says Naren Shaam, founder and CEO of Omio.
“We're thrilled to have such a lineup of partners, routes
and options bookable on Omio from day one and look forward to rolling out more
in the coming months, to offer users even more journey options.”
Omio says it serves 27 million users per month from more than
120 countries, with its product available in 21 languages. The company says about
10% of its users are those from the U.S. and Canada traveling in Europe.
Omio began as GoEuro in 2013 and rebranded in early 2019. The
company also owns Rome2rio, another multimodal travel search platform, which
it acquired in October 2019.
