For Thomas Cook customers waiting for their holiday refund, Flight Centre, one of the UK’s largest independent travel agents, is here to help. Customers can rebook their well-earned holiday now with £0 deposit. Click here for details of how Flight Centre can help – https://www.flightcentre.co.uk/uk-travel-blog/thomas-cook-administration.
For a limited time, travellers can rebook their long-haul holiday without having to pay the £200 deposit and with balance due 21 days before departure, customers have more time to receive their compensation.
Liz Matthews from Flight Centre “It’s a sad time for the industry with the collapse of the UK’s oldest travel company. So far, we have helped hundreds of Thomas Cook customers through our network of shops across the UK, from lost honeymoons, anniversary bookings and family getaways to those who have significantly saved up for a once in a lifetime holiday. We feel a strong desire to show that the travel industry, including Flight Centre, is a caring and people-based business, present on many of the same high streets that Thomas Cook inhabited.
“We have the unique opportunity to help many affected customers, as we can book every element of a holiday and customers can pop in store for some free and independent advice over a cup of tea or two.”
In addition, Flight Centre has also launched a Thomas Cook application area for experienced Travel Consultants to register their interest. The application process will be open ended, and Flight Centre will guarantee that every application will receive a phone interview. Check out Flight Centre’s careers section to find out more.
