Travel Fare-Tracker Yapta Adds $2 Million Second Round

Travel shopping and fare-tracking site has picked up $2 million in a second round of funding. Voyager Capital led the round, with participation from Bay Partners, First Round Capital, Swiftsure Capital, W Media Ventures, as well as private investors. Seattle-based Yapta has raised $7.7 million in total since its launch in 2006; it will use the new money to further develop its airfare and hotel price monitoring tools. Bigger portals like Expedia, Kayak/Sidestep, and now, Bing Travel, offer similar fare-tracking tools. *Yahoo* pulled the plug on its own site FareChase, earlier this year. Release.
