This company exclusively sells cruise and tour holidays, offering a wide range of trips to exotic locations, from the Far East to South America and Alaska. Founders Gary and Jenny West both worked for cruise companies before deciding to start their own business in Petersfield, Hampshire. They attribute much of Planet Cruise’s success to its swiftness in assembling its package holidays the moment a new cruise destination becomes available. Sales, which represent total transaction value, grew by 182% a year, from £603,000 in 2006 to £13.5m in 2009.
