Price Comparison Site HappyCar Raises $1.5M in Funding

Happycar, a European car rental comparison startup — has raised a new $1.58 million round of funding from several organizations, including Global Founders Capital and e-commerce company Rocket Internet, according to a report by TechCrunch.

This new round of funding brings total funding for Happycar to approximately $3.2 million since it was founded in 2013 in Hamburg, Germany.

Operating sites for Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands — but looking at car rentals worldwide — Happycar partners with over 250 international and local car rental companies so users can compare offers and find the best price, according to the report.

“Instead of having to scan various car rental providers’ websites to find the best price and offer, Happycar enables customers to compare various offers from car rental providers on one platform with a comprehensive and transparent overview,” Alexander Wessels, managing partner of Happycar, tells TechCrunch.
