HalalBooking.com

Holidaymakers can pick hotels with halal-friendly amenities using this firm’s website, which allows customers to select filters including no-alcohol policies, availability of women-only beaches and halal food options. University friends Enver Cebi, 39, and Elnur Seyidli, 40, founded the Reading firm in 2009, initially funded by Seyidli’s savings. It won £600,000 of angel investment in 2016, which helped it move to a larger headquarters and develop its search platform. Turnover — which represents gross booking value — reached £10.1m last year, roughly 80% of which was generated from customers overseas. It is translating its website to access the Malaysian and Indonesian markets.
