GetYourGuide is a leading booking platform for unique travel experiences based in Berlin, Germany. They help modern explorers discover and book unforgettable adventures. Since being founded, GetYourGuide has sold 150 million tickets to experiences globally.


GetYourGuide needed to optimize their marketing strategy to achieve the following main goals:

  • Effective brand protection while minimizing spending on brand terms.
  • Achieving positive results of over 200% for branded keywords while maintaining maximum Impression Share, and results of 50% for non-branded keywords.

They tested new ad placements to explore potential opportunities. SplitMetrics Agency also provided GetYourGuide with multiple reports with relevant keywords for different top markets. SplitMetrics also supported the launch of additional regional campaigns, helping GetYourGuide expand their reach and tap into new markets.
