Lastminute.com seems to have what it takes to be one of Europe’s leading travel retailers, in all actually, in terms of fame, it already is. A majority of people know about Lastminute and may have read Lastminute reviews which expound on its virtues and other weaknesses.
Popularity is enough to give it a number of Lastminute reviews on sites like tripadvisor.com, where some of its negative performances had been recounted.
When it Began
Lastminute was founded in April 1998, launched later that year in October 1998, and is headquartered in London, United Kingdom. It is an online travel and leisure company that originated from Lady Martha Lane-Fox and Brent Hoberman.
They trace their history to Hoberman’s business of extracting deals from hotels that he visited. With Lane-Fox in fellowship, they then started their dream of giving people a 5-star lifestyle at a friendly price. Their credo is “giving people five-star experiences at three-star price tags.” Their name really has stuck when it comes to last minute holidays: 94% of those who respond to what European brand they associate with last minute travel say “Lastminute.” They’ve gone long way from door-to-door haggling to being a major company in the country, known in Europe.
Lastminute’s current CEO since 2011 is UK-based Matthew Crummack. He has a BSc in International Business and Modern Languages at Aston University and enjoys outdoor activities.
Some Lastminute reviews teeter on the negative. They sometimes fail to reserve hotel bookings, leaving customers to shell out more. This is what usually happens according to Lastminute reviews and it’s probably one of the most revealing things you can say about a travel retailer.
Their not booking a service betrays their negligence and ignorance in the simplest matters, many people’s trips had been hampered by fixing problems caused by them. It’s word of mouth to book with another travel agency instead of with Lastminute.
Their Official Website
Visiting their website is pleasure, most sites have something different to offer and Lastminute shows videos behind their search engine. They show the most interesting sections at the middle: top secret deals and sales, tourist attractions. They also feature lifestyle activities nestled next to their attendant prices. These include visits to the theatre or to the spa.
All throughout the site are sections for city breaks or cities to go to, and places in Britain to take a vacation in. More on their concentration on lifestyle are the best places to get a spa in Europe which is also part of their website’s current proper. These items change over time, and discovering their new features is one way to be inspired and get ideas.
Their lastminute.com app is downloadable from the App Store and Google Play. You can search and book for nearby hotels and save as much as 35% through their Top Secret Hotels. For more information, offers and updates about Lastminute.com, kindly view their Twitter account here.

It has a great story behind it that’s sure to make people want to trust it. Trusting Lastminute.com is another matter, easy to do, but often consequently botched. Trust turns to disappointment. If only they do something about the incidents when they don’t make the reservation at all. One of those is enough to lose people, yet is has happened several times and makes them look bad.
