Lastminute does nicely in The Observer

Admit it: you thought Lastminute.com was just a travel site, right?

But as the gang on Victoria Street say as often as possible, Lastminute.com does a fair bit outside of travel.

So therefore they couldn’t have asked for much more of a lift when The Observer did a nice bit of PR for them at the weekend.

Lastminute.com went up against well known ticketing sites Ticketmaster.co.uk, Ticketweb.co.uk, Theatretickets.co.uk and the recently launched John Lewis effort, Greenbee.com.

Luckily for Lastminute.com it came second behind TicketMaster, scoring eight out of ten, according to event promoting supremo Harvey Goldsmith.

[TicketMaster received an all-conquering nine; Greenbee grabbed six; Theatre Tickets managed five; and Ticket Web was slammed – “crap” – with a woeful two]
