When you book a holiday through a British travel agent, the chances are that it will be using Comtec’s software to search schedules and make reservations. The Welsh company claims to have 65% of the market for supplying UK travel agents with bespoke software, and an 80% share of UK e-commerce transactions in the sector. In February, Amadeus, a large international online reservation service, bought a 20% stake in Comtec. The company’s sales have grown 104% a year from £1.4m in 2001 to £6m in 2003.
