Berlin, Germany-based travel startup GoEuro has raised $45 million in Series B funding on the heels of GetYourGuide securing $50 million last month.

Goldman Sachs led the funding round, with new investors Atomico, Yuri Milner (DST), Tom Stafford, Sebastian Siemiatkowski (Klarna) and Ilkka Paananen (Supercell) chipping in.

GoEuro claims its the largest platform in Europe for planning and booking all rail, bus and air transportation. It now operates in 11 countries around Europe.

Niklas Zennström, founder and CEO of Atomico, said:

"GoEuro is only two years old but we have been extremely impressed with their international approach to revolutionizing European travel. I am also delighted to see successful entrepreneurs like Ilkka and Sebastian re-investing in the tech community and strengthening Europe's tech ecosystem."
