Some 2m people going on holiday in the past year have taken out travel insurance from the intermediary InsureandGo, allowing the company to claim about 12% of the market. After the acquisition of CIG Services two years ago, the firm is now looking to establish a presence in the much bigger car and household insurance markets. Based at Southend-on-Sea, the founders James Richardson and Perry Wilson have driven up sales 115% a year from an annualised £3.7m in 2002 to £37.2m in 2005.
