The 1990 paved the way for a new revolution, the .com revolution. This saw many new and exciting online ventures pop up. lastminute.com was one of them.
Founded in 1998 by colleagues Brent Hoberman and Marther Lane Fox as a way of offering cheap last minutes holidays online. It didn’t take long for this company to get off the ground. In fact by 2000 there was expansion into more other areas such as Entertainment and gifts.
Ian McCaig took over the running of the company from 2006 when Hoberman left. 2009 saw the release on a restaurant finder app for Android phones named Near You or NRU.
Numerous campaigns over the years have helped to boost sales and build reputation. The 2011 ads with the tagline “stories start here” helped aid the popularity of the brand in its quest to become the premier place for excellent deals with huge savings.
Currently lastminute.com is one of the top holiday, leisure and travel websites in the UK. They have a huge selection of products available, from Car hire, Plane tickets and trips to London’s West end. Food experiences and deals are also available along with many thrilling experiences days.
Experience days are something which is very popular at the moment due to the fact that this world has left many us with an “I like, I buy” attitude. Lots of us are not waiting for our birthdays to get our hands on the things we want any more, we are buying these things right away. An experience day will be something a tad extravagant that that most people will not realise they wanted.
For the boys you have clay pigeon shooting and test drives in amazing super cars. The ladies can be treated with afternoon tea for two or a makeover with photo shoot. Don’t think families are forgotten either there are always a whole host of fun days that will involve the whole family.
With a selection of over 350 entertainment days out and well over 80,000 hotels in every corner of the globe lastminute.com has got it covered. It has recently been reported that a theatre ticket is sold less then every minute, a spa day every 3 minutes and 4 people book their holiday every hour.
All this has led to a number of well-earned awards for the company. Most of these awards centre around the amazing deals that are always featured on the website. Most recently in 2011 lastminute.com received the award for Best Holiday Attraction/Ticket Provider at the prestigious British Travel awards.
Lastminute.com offers a wide range of products all coming from different sources. For this reason everything that they sell is non-refundable and non-exchangeable. So always take extra care before making a booking of buying tickets or experiences.
