Low Cost Travel Group

Flights, hotel stays and airport transfers are sold by this West Sussex business to the holidaying public and tour operators. In 2005 Albion Ventures invested £2m to fund expansion and since 2009 the firm has set up offices and websites in six European countries, as well as acquiring a cruise agency and an airport-transfers firm. With an estimated 2.5m holidaymakers using its services this year, the firm expects more growth from a deal that it says makes it the exclusive supplier of holiday packages to easyJet and Lastminute.com. Sales under founder and chief executive Paul Evans rose 70% a year, from £5.5m in 2007 to £27.1m in 2010.
