Omio was found by Naren Shaam after he embarked on an extensive backpacking trip across Europe in 2010.

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

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

Since launching in 2013, Omio has been changing the world of travel by empowering customers to go on journeys that move them.
