Cruise.co.uk flies the flag for travel in Sunday Times Fast Track

Cruise.co.uk is the only travel firm to feature in the latest Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list of private companies with the fastest-growing sales.

The Redditch-based company appears in 54th position in the latest league table, notching up average sales growth over three years of 60.51%.

Sales for 2014 came in at £30.1 million as it invested in its online platform against £7.3 million in 2011, according to the 19th annual Fast Track figures.

Founder, Andrew Gardner, and managing director, Seamus Conlon, led a management buyout of the business from Forward Group in 2013, backed by Risk Capital Partners.

Cruise.co.uk now claims to be the UK’s biggest cruise holiday website, offering travel packages alongside discussion forums, cruise reviews and comparison tables.

The company employs around 140 staff and recently bought two firms in Ireland and Australia for undisclosed sums.
