If you are looking for more UK source market tour operators to send guests to your hotel then we have one very well-known brand for you: Thomas Cook.
Yes, that is right. Recently Thomas Cook re-launched as an online tour operator in the UK market following the acquisition of the brand by Fosun Tourism Group, the leader in the leisure tourism industry for families worldwide.
And now the newly launched Thomas Cook is buying hotel accommodation via Hotelbeds!
Thomas Cook joins Hotelbeds’ existing 60,000 travel trade buyers – such as tour operators, travel agents, airlines and points redemption schemes – who typically book further in advance, pay more per room, stay for longer, have lower cancellation rates and spend more at the property.
Talking about the partnership, Emma King, Head of Commercial Product at Hotelbeds commented: “When we were developing our new Thomas Cook we wanted to offer our customers the widest possible choice of hotel accommodation – and to be able to do that quickly without the need for direct contracting.
“Our relationship with Hotelbeds as a strategic bedbank partner, gives our customers access to a huge portfolio of exclusive and competitively priced hotels worldwide. We’re only selling holidays to destinations on the UK government’s travel corridor list, including Turkey, Italy and some parts of Greece.
“We will update that once travel restrictions change or are lifted. We look forward to growing and scaling our business working alongside Hotelbeds to respond to growing customer demand for holidays.”
