As a student, HolidayPirates founder Igor Simonow travelled around the world for bargain prices: to Rio for €200, to Miami for €250 or one day to London for €50. In order to share his knowledge of cheap travel deals with the community, Igor published the first HolidayPirates blog post in 2011. The hitherto unique concept quickly gained popularity, and as a result he teamed up with co-founder Sebastian Kaatz in 2012 to found the company HolidayPirates Ltd. 

In addition to its native Germany, HolidayPirates is thriving in nine other countries and in seven different languages in the UK, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Poland, France and the USA.
