GetYourGuide for iOS & Android

GetYourGuide, the world’s largest online platform for tours & activities, launches its first app for iPhone & Android for the UK market

Berlin 11 października 2013 - GetYourGuide, the largest online platform for tours and leisure activities, today announces the launch of its new iPhone and Android apps in the UK that offers travellers a simple way to make bookings anytime, anywhere. Available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play, users have a choice of 23,100 offers across 2,200 destinations around the world.

Whether it’s museum visits; city tours, shows, musicals or unusual activities like bungee jumping or desert safaris, GetYourGuide caters for all types of traveler. And with the new app, booking a tour or activity couldn’t be simpler. For each booking, GetYourGuide creates a unique mobile voucher for users to show to merchants meaning they avoid the hassle of printing out tickets. 

On launching the app, users can see the ten top tours and activities in global cities - including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Dubai and New York. In addition to this, the app detects an individual’s location and shows them all of the activities are available to book around them. Listings include a detailed description and reviews from other customers including the pictures they take. If it’s not the right booking for now, activities can be added to a user’s personal wish list that they can book later.

The app’s design is slick, easy-to-use and has an incredible user interface for users to make bookings on the fly. Payments can be made easily using a credit card and details can be saved for the future also. 

Johannes Reck, CEO of GetYourGuide, said: "The future of GetYourGuide is smart and mobile. We are very proud that we can call in a new era in our company's short history with the launch of our app. It has never been easier to be inspired to search for tours and activities at numerous destinations around and the world and book an offer right away. It’s the perfect way to be spontaneous when you’re travelling or plan ahead for a trip to a new city.”

It’s been an impressive year for the Berlin-based company. After securing $14M in funding in January from Spark Capital and Highland Capital Partners Europe, the team has expanded into France, Italy, Spain and Netherlands. GetYourGuide also completed the acquisitions of competitor Gidsy in April and NYC startup iGottaGuide in August.

The GetYourGuide app is available to download for free on iOS and Android.
