History

In 2010, our founder, Naren Shaam, embarked on an extensive backpacking trip across Europe.

Shaam knew where he wanted to go, but planning the best route, finding an affordable bus ticket or the right train to get him there left him frustrated and a little light in the pocket.

Seeing a need for a multi-mode travel site, Shaam quit his job in finance in NYC, packed up his life and moved to Berlin, with its burgeoning tech and startup scene.

In 2013, GoEuro went live.

In early 2019, GoEuro became Omio. That’s Oh-ME-oh.

Why the change? We believe travel moves and empowers people globally, and wanted our brand to focus on more than Europe.

Becoming Omio allowed us to go beyond booking journeys. It enabled us to become an all-encompassing travel hub, one that supports our customers’ need to explore the world.

In 2020, COVID-19 hit, and the travel industry—and the world—ground to a halt. However, our resilient team spared no effort to help our customers navigate the challenges of the pandemic.

Travel has forever changed but we will continue to innovate and support our customers so they can move freely and explore the familiar and the unexpected on their own terms.

The Omio Team

From a small startup of just a few people, our team has grown to 300 employees hailing from more than 50 countries who work at offices in Berlin, Prague, Beijing, London and New York.

We come together daily to bring our vision to fruition, with the goal of creating travel experiences that inspire, guide and delight. Our innovative technologies, passion and diversity are our strengths. Working at Omio is a journey in and of itself, one that moves us to share in the beauty of travel.
