Lastminute.com is an online travel and leisure retailer. The company was founded by Martha Lane Fox and Brent Hoberman in 1998 and was a part of the UK internet boom of the late 1990s, part of the dot com bubble and trading on the London Stock Exchange under the symbol ‘LMC’.
In August 2014, Lastminute.com ranked on the 6th place in a Travel Brand Index conducted by an independent market research firm.
In December 2014, Lastminute.com was bought by Bravofly Rumbo for $120m (£76m) — a small fraction of the £600m price Sabre had paid for it back in 2005.
