The business trades through three websites - Igluski.com, Iglucruise.com and planetcruise.co.uk.
Iglu.com is the UK’s leading online travel agent specialising in cruise and ski holidays.
In June 2015, Iglu.com secured investment from LDC.
The investment enables the existing Iglu management team, led by founder Richard Downs, to retain a majority shareholding, with LDC taking a significant minority shareholding.
The investment from LDC will also allow Iglu to take its model into new geographies and product areas including tailor-made holidays, luxury cruises and long haul holidays.

Having LDC chief executive Chris Hurley on our board is another key differentiator. They don't pretend to have an in-depth knowledge of travel. But they have great insight in digital from their other investments in the space. They've been hugely supportive: always taking on board management's views before lurching to their own opinions, but also challenging our thinking as we position the business for further growth. It's really felt like team work. Richard Downs, Chief Executive Officer, Iglu
