Online travel agency Travel Republic shot up the list of top e-retailers last quarter, finishing in 28th place, 18 places higher than the same time last year.



First Choice also rose 12 places to return to the Top 50, having dropped out last quarter.



Several other travel brands and low-cost airlines also improved their rankings last quarter as consumer's rushed to book last minute flights and packages, but Travel Republic and Train Line were the only two travel companies to finish higher than last year.



Thomson was the best performing travel brand, finishing in 10th place, one head of EasyJet,. Expedia finished in 14h place, eight ahead of Lastminute.com, and Ryanair finished 15th. Thomas Cook was in 17th place and British Airways 34th.



Tina, Spooner, chief information officer at IMRG, an industry association for online retailers, said:-~ "During the summer months the travel companies always perform well, although growth for some of them was more modest than last year.



"Two of them however, The Train Line and TravelRepublic.co.uk, have exceeded the rankings they achieved in summer last year."
