Rome2rio was founded by Bernhard Tschirren and Dr Michael Cameron, two ex-Microsoft software engineers. The site was born out of their frustrations with the lack of a fast, easy-to-use, and comprehensive multi-modal search engine with global coverage.

The two co-founders began work on the product in September 2010 and won the Melbourne Azure Bizspark Camp Award in February 2011. The beta version of Rome2rio was officially launched on 7 April 2011.

Rod Cuthbert, founder of Viator, joined the team as CEO in 2012. Rome2rio won the People's Choice Award at Phocuswright 2012,[9] the TRAVELtech GlobalCollect Website of the Year in 2013,[10] and the Data Specialist Award at the 2015 WITovation Awards.

The company has raised $2.8 million in funding including a 2014 grant of $1.2 million from Commercialisation Australia.
