  • Ukrainian online bus tour service EuroTrips raised €260K in an investment round, led by travel holding company Day8
  • Day 8 has been creating travel projects since 2006, including Yacht Week, Ski Week, and Quarter Deck. 
  • The funds will be utilized to launch the company into new markets, enhance its marketing efforts, and strengthen its team to ensure the delivery of exceptional travel experiences. 

Founded in 2013, EuroTrips differentiates itself by offering curated itineraries that combine iconic cultural landmarks with contemporary experiences in Europe’s top cities. 

“For more than 11 years of work in European tourism, our team has faced many challenges. However, our goal was to present a fresh perspective on the traditionally conservative travel market. And, after gaining valuable experience and growth, our team is ready for further development with the support of key partners like Yacht Week,” Dmytro Yaremkovych, CEO and co-founder of EuroTrips, said in a statement.

According to Yaremkovych, the partnership not only supports EuroTrips’ creative strategy, but also puts the company in a strong position to enter new markets. “As well as achieving our goal of being the leading travel company for European destinations to provide travelers with travel experiences around the world,” he

Despite the Russian-Ukrainian war, the company has found opportunities and resources for development. To help everyone comfortably enjoy their time together, the company is restricting the age range to only 20–30 years old. Additionally, with its “Less is More” approach, the company provides 10 meticulously crafted routes, sparing customers the hassle of sifting through endless options on the website.

As EuroTrips prepares to launch its summer season, the first tours will commence at the end of May, featuring nine European routes. These journeys range from 10 to 37 days, spanning 4 to 14 countries in a single trip. Collaborations with Yacht Week are also underway, promising more excitement for travelers.

“At Day 8 Experiences and The Yacht Week, our vision is to create extraordinary experiences that spread joy, spark an appreciation for our planet, and inspire curious people to become part of our global family. Investing in EuroTrips is a no-brainer and the experience that their team brings will help supercharge us in this space”, said Barry Gifford, CEO at Day 8.

In terms of growth, EuroTrips boasts a dedicated team of 22 individuals in the back office, with an additional 20 in the team of guides and photographers. Within the Day8 team, over 40 individuals work in the back office, supported by more than 100 project members working on all the holding projects.
