“Global supply is a massive challenge and our biggest investment area,” said Clem Walshe, Managing Director Ireland. “The uptake from having the right hotel stock for travel agents and travellers across the world from 42 countries is immediate, but customer demand changes and keeping up is crucial to continued growth.

“Ireland is now one of our top-performing markets and is undoubtedly benefitting from the group’s recent global expansion, offering customers a vastly increased great value product portfolio. Going global means our ambition of delivering over €1 billion in sales within two years is now a tangible goal.”

“We are delighted that our investment in hotel buying, mobile and diversification from the UK is paying off, with our growth accelerating ahead of schedule,” added Alex Gisbert, Chief Marketing Officer.

Visits from tablets and mobile devices continue to increase across all markets, with traffic from tablets up 26% and mobile 120% up year-on-year. The business is now on course to double the number of contracted hotels it is able to offer to its customers across the Lowcostbeds and Lowcostholidays brands.
