“Having an investment partner like LDC onboard sharing your ambitions has been hugely beneficial, giving us the clarity of vision to execute our growth plans, and the capital to make it happen.”

David Andrews, Investment Director at LDC, added: “Since we partnered with Stuart and his team just over a year ago, they have shown the drive and determination to achieve significant growth in a short space of time. With a clear plan to capitalise on the growing demand in the long-haul and luxury market, we anticipate the business’ sales to continue on an upward trajectory.”

LDC invested in Blue Bay Travel in February 2017 to accelerate its growth through investment in technology and launching new products. The deal saw travel industry veteran Andrew Gardner, who founded Cruise.co.uk, join the board as non-executive chairman.
