International Track 200

Each month, 42m people across the world use this firm’s website and apps to book airline tickets, hotel rooms and hire cars. Under co-founder and chief executive Gareth Williams, 46, the Edinburgh company has opened offices in Europe, the US and Asia, and last year acquired Chinese metasearch company Youbibi and Hungarian mobile app firm Distinction. International sales grew to £69.1m in 2014, boosted by an increase in Asia Pacific users of its site.
