Roomex raises £3M to help simplify business travel

We are proud to back this ambitious team — welcome Roomex to the Frontline family!

Business travel has long been a hassle — clouded in complicated invoicing, slow search & discovery, and unnecessarily high cost. Roomex CEO Jack Donaghy realised the industry was in desperate need of change — and thus, the global hotel booking platform for business travel was born.

Today, we are excited to lead Roomex’s £3 million Series A — alongside such senior industry experts as former Hostelworld Chairman Paddy Holahan and CarTrawler CTO Bobby Healy.

We were hugely impressed by Roomex’s traction thus far — there are currently over 550,000 hotels worldwide on the platform and have achieved bookings growths of almost 100% year-on-year since 2013. The unique technology allows for faster booking and single invoicing, which is friendlier to medium and large businesses. Companies get easy access to live reporting and can easily implement policy and control — as well as fulfilling Duty of Care requirements, knowing where staff are at all times on business travel.

The Roomex team recently opened a new office in London, and are well-poised to aggressively accelerate their UK growth. Their continually growing client list includes AIB, Musgrave Group, Sisk Group, Dairygold, Kepak, David Lloyd, TGI Fridays, and Allianz.
