Wego (formerly known as Bezurk[3][4][5]) is a travel search engine based in Singapore. It operates 52 CcTLD in over 30 languages, and converts prices to 42 currencies.[6] It searches over 700 travel sites, where users compare and book flights, hotels and activities. Wego results are a combination of travel offers from online travel agencies (OTA), consolidators such as Expedia and Agoda, airlines and larger hotel chains.

Founded in 2005 by Craig Hewett and Ross Veitch,[7] former executives from Intercontinental Hotels Group and Yahoo!, Wego is headquartered in Singapore with local offices in Australia, Indonesia, India[8] and UAE (Dubai).[9]

Early 2013 Wego launched its Dubai office serving the MENA region with full supported Arabic website, in addition to iOS and Android apps.[10]
