Groupon grabs last-minute travel app Blink

New acquisition

Deal-of-the-day website, Groupon, has acquired last-minute travel app, Blink Booking. The Spanish app offers last-minute hotel bookings and counts more than 2,000 hotel partners in eight countries.

The new purchase may help bolster Groupon Getaway as the company tries to expand its European business.

“We are very excited to welcome the Blink team to the Groupon family,” said Aaron Cooper, senior vice president of Groupon Getaways. “The combination of a fantastic mobile app, same-day inventory management for properties and a team that is obsessed with mobile and last-minute travel will help us further expand our travel business as the go-to destination for great deals on great places to stay.”
