Thomas Cook… an update

As 150,000 holidaymakers wait to go home to the UK and around 600,000 are affected worldwide, it is worth championing and defending the lifeblood of our industry…

The Travel Agent.

We owe a huge debt to Thomas Cook who 178 years ago launched the package holiday.

His company though has been liquidated because it cannot fill the £200m gap in its finances.

Which means that 20,000 jobs are at risk and your holiday may have been cancelled.

And so then, some help from one of our holiday providers.

You’re on holiday

Meet the locals: Barbados

If you are in a resort and your booking was made with Thomas Cook through American Holidays, your booking will continue as planned.

AH’s local office in North America will get in contact with you directly (local time).

Or if you want to contact them you can call +1 888 345 5252.

You have a booking

A Minnie-break: In Florida

You may be able to continue as planned with little or no additional cost.

So you should call the Belfast office on 028 90 511871 or Dublin on 1 433 1060.

Give the name in which the booking has been made in and your departure date handy. 

Do I have a booking?

Sarong, but so right: The Maldives

But you’re not sure if you are booked with American Holidays for Thomas Cook holidays?

So you should check your invoice or documentation from Thomas Cook and see if you are listed.

If you are still not sure, call the Belfast office on 028 90 511871 or Dublin on 1 433 1060.

Thomas Cook Flights

A South African township

If your booking has Thomas Cook Flights on it, it was not booked through American Holidays.  

For all other queries ring the main reservation numbers:  Belfast: 028 90 511800. Dublin: 01 433 1060. 

AH says that If your Thomas Cook Flights or Package Holiday has been cancelled, American Holidays can help re-book your packages.

To the USA, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Indian Ocean destinations (Maldives, Mauritius, etc), Africa, Asia, and all cruise destinations.

And here are a few samples of what some of these great destinations have to offer across the board and which AH also serve…

Lets dance! I’ve waltzed with Judy Murray, partied with Brian Lara, manned the barricades with Civil Rights leader Myrlie Evers and even unmasked The Donald as a mariachi fan. Join me (and my bandana) on a madcap tour of the world with the people who make it all possible, our wonderful travel providers.
