One of the fastest-growing companies in the travel industry -raising over US$520 million in funding to date-  the platform offers over 100,000 experiences in more than 350 destinations.

LONDON - With “big plans in the UK for 2020”, Klook is in the process of rolling out an unprecedented UK offering set where users can book tickets for a wide range of activities, attractions and services in one place.

Founded in 2014, Klook hosts popular attractions, tours, local transportation, connectivity (WiFi, SIM cards), foods, and unique experiences around the world on its website and award-winning app.

The platform supports over 41 currencies and 14 different languages, facilitating experiences on the go for Brits overseas or closer to home.

One of the fastest-growing companies in the travel industry -raising over US$520 million in funding to date-  the platform offers over 100,000 experiences in more than 350 destinations. Its rapid rise globally reflects the massive demand to bring the tours and activities sector into the digital world and reduce purchase friction for always-on, mobile-first travellers.

Klook brings significant benefits to consumers and the industry alike. As well as huge names including Walt Disney World and RailEurope, Klook also offers an unrivalled marketing platform for localised attractions, with less of an international footprint, to attract visitors and sell tickets globally.

Klook receives over 30 million site visits per month and has over 5 million reviews for consumers to read and digest before choosing an activity, tour, experience or attraction booking.

Simon Llanos, Marketing Director UK for Klook, commented: “Klook has been laying foundations in the UK, hiring top talent and building out market-specific products. We’re excited and poised for 2020 as the year Klook becomes a household name to the UK traveller.”

“There is a need in the market for a better purchase experience and services when it comes to booking in-destination tours and activities, and Klook has the best global offering. Our platform offers travellers a wide variety of experiences to choose from and a seamless process of exploring, purchasing, and redeeming.

“With Klook, people can book on the go and enjoy instant confirmations, remove the hassle of frustrating currency exchanges and can streamline their travel plans, with the app hosting the entire end-to-end trip itinerary and tickets.”

As well as the customer experience Klook also boasts an impressive integrated, free to use, merchant system. Attraction and service providers can register to feature on Klook by visiting the ‘Partner with us’ section of the website.
