Brighton-based Holidays 4U provides budget flights and holidays to 17 Turkish resorts. In partnership with the Turkish low-cost airline Onur Air, it sells holiday packages through its website and travel agents such as Co-op Travel and Hayes Travel. Co-founder Vedat Demren claims his local knowledge and contacts in Turkey have enabled the company to succeed despite unrest in the region. The development of its online booking system and the introduction of winter flights have helped to increase sales 67% a year from £2.5m in 2002 to £11.7m in 2005.
