KKday has raised an undisclosed amount of funding in a series B-plus round led by Alibaba’s Entrepreneurs Fund and Line Ventures.
Taipei-based KKday, which provides an online platform for booking holiday tours and activities, said the strategic investment would help it to “leverage innovative technologies in travel bookings and experiences” and boost its global expansion plans.
Specifically, it’s targeting further growth of its Chinese, Japanese, and South Korean operations, as well as first-time launches in Australasia, Europe, and the US.
The deal with KKday will enable Line to offer a new feature to its Taiwanese users, called Line Travel.
This in-app service will allow users to search for and book flights, hotels, and activities.
They’ll also be able to use the feature to share their travel itineraries with fellow Line users.
