LoveHolidays, one of the largest and fastest-growing travel brands in the UK, faced a significant challenge in maintaining its website performance to meet the high demand. With over a million users each month and an average of 4,000 requests every second in 2019, the company needed to ensure a seamless user experience to maintain and increase its conversion rates. The company's previous architecture was composed of various legacy systems, which added an unnecessary level of instability and lack of scalability. Furthermore, the company needed to optimize its hotel images, a critical factor in engaging potential customers and boosting conversions. Slow-loading images not only deterred potential customers but also negatively impacted the site's SEO performance.
About The Customer
LoveHolidays is one of the largest and fastest-growing travel brands in the UK. The company operates as an online travel agent, offering customers a bespoke way of searching for holidays based on their preferences, such as budget, board basis, and average daily temperature. In 2019, its website saw over a million users each month and an average of 4,000 requests every second. The company is known for its innovative approach to providing travel solutions and has been at the forefront of using technology to enhance its services and customer experience.
In 2020, LoveHolidays implemented Fastly's edge cloud to drive their digital transformation. This solution seamlessly handled device detection, image optimization, edge caching, TLS and GeoIP detection, and enabled real-time streaming of logs to BigQuery. This significantly simplified the company's infrastructure and improved performance, reliability, and cost savings. The company also used Fastly to optimize its hotel images, removing the overhead associated with having to resize images on the fly. Fastly's integration with Terraform provided complete code visibility and allowed the LoveHolidays team to monitor changes and deploy them with confidence. Furthermore, LoveHolidays utilized Fastly's Compute@Edge serverless compute environment to conduct A/B testing at scale, allowing the team to customize and personalize the customer experience without impacting SEO rankings.
