New additions of Olympus Riviera in Greece (Greece bookings are up 40% across the Thomas Cook Group), will be launching this Thursday. It’s exclusive to Thomas Cook in the United Kingdom, along with Golden Sands in Bulgaria, Spain’s Costa Brava and Madeira.
Seven new posh hotels and accommodations include Olympus Riviera – Sentido Mediterranean Village Hotel & Spa; Golden Sands, Bulgaria – Sentido Marea; Golden Sands, Bulgaria – smartline Madara; Golden Sands Bulgaira – smartline Arena Mar; Lanzarote – smartline Lanzarote Palm; Paphos – Sunconnect Sofiana; and Ibiza – smartline Xaloc.
Seventeen new flight routes that encompasses existing ones along with new places like Funchal, Gerona, and Varna with increased flight frequency on various existing routes from airports which includes Belfast as well as Newcastle. On Monday and Thursday, new flight routes will be activated to Corfu while new flight routes from Heraklion to Bristol will be activated on Tuesday and Friday. From Manchester to Gerona, a Saturday flight will be slotted.
Also, a Paphos flight on Friday and Corfu flights on Thursday and Sunday from Birmingham; Monday, Thursday and Friday flights to Corfu from Newcastle; and Monday flights to Kos from Glasgow and Belfast. To quote Chris Mottershead, managing director at Thomas Cook UK, ‘’ our new destinations for summer 2018 offer a good mix of holiday types. We’re expecting revitalization in the traditional package holiday destination of Costa Brava and we’ve worked hard to secure some of the best quality hotels for our customers.
Madeira on the other hand is perfect for those looking for something other than all-inclusive. Perhaps once seen as a destination just for older travelers, we think its array of local dining options and natural beauty will bring it higher up the wish-list for many customers next summer. Plus with Greece being so popular this summer, the addition of the stunning Olympus Riviera means there will be even more options.’’
