We connect travelers with trusted on-the-ground travel agencies
Founded by travel enthusiasts in 2009, Evaneos is the first website to directly connect travellers with local travel agencies around the world. Why? So that travellers can plan their holidays according to their personal needs and desires together with a local expert, without any intermediaries. 7 years later, Evaneos works with 950 local agencies in more than 160 destinations and has already helped more than 130,000 travellers realise the trip of their dreams.
Founded in 2009 by Eric La Bonnardière (CEO) and Yvan Wibaux (CTO), Evaneos provides an online platform to help travellers design, estimate the cost, and book a personalised trip by connecting them with local agents in each destination country, who then offer advice and assistance. These local agents are tourism professionals, who traditionally provide services to major tour operators. In that sense, it’s a classic online play that serves to remove the intermediary. We’re working to revolutionize online travel booking !
Evaneos makes money by charging a fee for each transaction on its website. It says the fee is much less than the typical margin of a tour operator and is transparent for customers — it’s paid by local agencies without increasing the end-customer price.
Evaneos is already international and operates in Spain, Germany, Italy, UK and France.
It’s becoming the new reference for discerning travelers to prepare, book and share unique travel experiences.
