Established in 1808, Thomas Cook is now one of the UK's leading travel companies.
Thomas Cook is the probably the world's best-known name in travel, thanks to the
inspiration and dedication of a single man. Thomas Cook began his international travel company
in 1841, with a successful one-day rail excursion at a shilling a head from Leicester to
Loughborough. This has now developed into the second largest Travel Group in Europe.
Thomas Cook Airlines is the second biggest
Leisure Airline in the UK and has been named as 'Best-performing airline' for two years running
