eDreams ODIGEO: Best Online Travel Partner Global 2016

One of Europe’s largest and most-recognisable e-businesses, eDreams ODIGEO manages a number of premier brands that set the pace of the buoyant online travel industry. The company’s portfolio comprises five brands – each a market leader in their geography – that offer clients a growing palette of travel-related services such as bookings on charter, low-cost, and regular airlines in addition to hotel, cruise, and car rental reservations. eDreams ODIGEO also sells complete packages to clients looking to streamline their travel plans.

Present in 44 markets on six continents, and with a staff of over 1,700 dedicated professionals, eDreams ODIGEO maintains a network of fifteen offices that serve over 17 million clients. The company registers in excess of 750 million monthly searches across its 143 websites. Listed on the Madrid Stock Exchange, eDreams was set up in 2000 with help from US and European venture capital funds.

Growing into a conglomerate that helped shape the online travel industry, the company absorbed a number of competitors via mergers and acquisitions. In 2013, eDreams ODIGEO bought Liligo – a search engine that enables visitors to compare the pricing of travel products. Liligo pioneered a multi-modal search facility to allows users to search for the best price across a range of travel options including air, rail, and road.

For the second year running, the CFI.co judging panel agrees that the company is a worthy winner. The judges are pleased to offer eDreams ODIGEO the 2016 Best Online Travel Partner Award.
