This online travel agency provides flights to smaller and more remote destinations that are not bought in high enough volume by large agencies. Headed by chief executive Sam Argyle, 32, the company provides flight searches for business and leisure travellers to more than 600 airlines. Recent growth came after the company rebuilt its platform to offer automatic currency and language options. Another key part of its success is in allowing customers to pay in instalments for flights directly on its site, and via mobile. Revenues, made up of gross booking values, hit £10m in 2018.
