Thomas Cook flogging off cheap Olympic ticket & travel packages
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.
