Thomas Cook flogging off cheap Olympic ticket & travel packages

4 June 2012

A curiosity, tomorrow

Beleaguered travel agent Thomas Cook has got egg on its face at the moment after scrapping its efforts to sell deluxe Olympic packages for about £6,500. The problem was that no one wanted to buy them.

They have now scaled back their plans and have loads of packages of Olympic tickets and hotel accommodation starting at just £79 per person. Which represents a pretty good deal if you’ve already tried and failed to get to see the festival of running, jumping and throwing stuff which starts next month.

You won’t be staying in the lap of luxury in the middle of the Olympic village but you can get to see the preliminaries of the men’s volleyball and have a night in the Ibis in Heathrow for £79 per person. It looks like a bit of a fire sale, but worth considering if you are completely desperate to get a sniff of Olympic fever.

It’s an extra tenner for the women’s volleyball. Ahem.

    Apparently, the tickets for the 'spazzy' olympics are going even cheaper! Admitedly, who the fuck wants to see some midget swimming, blind javelin throwing and the 1 legged race? Eh? Not me! Although, the blind hammer throw sounds pretty fucking cool.

    I'd love to see the mentally retarded boxing.

    Dick, downs syndrome wrestling, is awesome, the ref just tells them they can't watch Sponge Bob later and they go fucking mental!

    They had loads of cheap deals at the start as well, they just sold them all! Anyway, anyone who has been there will know it's going to be mental trying to get all the way over from Heathrow to the Olympic Park come the Olympics. I'd rather be staying someone central and have alteratives like buses and taxi's etc rather than being stuck in West London
