UK gets new travel search engine

29th Jun 2006

Travel search engine, Mobissimo, is launching its UK site
The British are traditionally savvy travellers who travel often both domestically and abroad. Mobissimo covers well-known domestic travel suppliers such as Active Hotels, British Airways, Easyjet, Ebookers, Hotel Pronto,, Monarch,, Ryanair, Skoosh, Sterling, and features the largest selection of low cost airlines available in one convenient location.

Mobissimo is the only travel search engine to specialize in international travel and offers unparalleled depth in travel resources for deals to three foreign destinations favoured by UK residents: the U.S., continental Europe and India.

Continuing Mobissimo’s trajectory of organic growth and international expansion, Mobissimo UK is the second European site operated by the company. Mobissimo launched its French site ( ) in September 2005.

Beyond Europe, Asia has quickly developed into a white-hot market for online travel search, due to the Indian economic boom and the emergence of a new generation of low cost airlines to meet increasing demand for travel options. Last month Mobissimo became the first travel search engine to specifically target India with the launch of its Indian site ( ) bringing Indian consumers the largest selection of travel deals available both domestically and worldwide.

“We focus on entering the fastest growing travel markets globally to propose the best choices and recommendation tools to our users. The UK leisure travel market is very active and the UK has always represented a significant source of traffic for Mobissimo,” said Beatrice Tarka, Mobissimo’s CEO.


Mobissimo searches prices directly from 166 different travel suppliers across the world, based on visitors’ search criteria, and displays them with one simple search.

Just like a Virtual Travel Concierge, Mobissimo’s innovative recommendation tools make it easy for travellers to discover new destinations and routes, particularly useful in summer and winter holiday seasons when fares to popular destinations tend to sell out. Users can enter queries with Mobissimo OneBox natural language search, tap PowerSearch for multiple city searches, consult MobiCombo for dynamic ticket combinations, and run ActivitySearch for theme-based travel planning, directly on the Mobissimo home page.
