Thomas Cook have now officially relaunched as an online travel agent

Thomas Cook have returned to the holidays market, relaunching as an online travel agent – thomascook.com.

They will be selling mainly multi-contract Atol-protected packages – mostly easyJet flights combined with hotels sourced through Hotelbeds, Webbeds or Yalago.

The OTA is also working with flight consolidator Paxport and have confirmed they have been given ABTA membership.

The Thomas Cook brand, including the ‘sunny heart logo’, and website were¬†bought from the liquidators by Chinese conglomerate Fosun last year for ¬£11 million.

A spokesperson said: “The site allows customers to design their own holiday, adding flights and hotels with the option of transfers – other add-ons include car hire, airport parking, currency and travel insurance.

“Customers can quickly search for their preferred destination and refine results against a range of criteria that are important to them.”

Thomas Cook will initially only sell holidays to countries on the UK government’s green list of quarantine-free travel.

Customers have also been promised that they won’t be charged a fee to change their holidays if their chosen destination drops off the quarantine-free list.
