Europe continues to be a highly aspirational destination and a favourite for Indian consumers. With several Europe nations re-opening borders to fully vaccinated Indians, Thomas Cook (India) Limited, India’s leading integrated travel services company, and its Group Company, SOTC Travel Ltd. have launched an exciting range of all-inclusive escorted tours to Europe.

While Thomas Cook and SOTC’s Third Holiday Readiness Report 2021 reveals strong pent up travel demand (69% customers ready to travel in 2021; 46% preferring international destinations), Europe tops the leader board. Thomas Cook India & SOTC’s escorted European tours offer a delightful diversity of locales and experiences: from history, culture and architecture to world-renowned cuisine, scenic vistas to great shopping options!

Unique elements have been included in each tour, such as: the Golden Pass panoramic train journey from Montreux to Gstaad; an exciting husky sledge ride; a visit to a champagne cellar; a Bollywood movie trail in Switzerland; a sensory experience at France’s Fragonard Perfumery; a scenic cruise in the Lake Geneva Region; a special flamenco performance or a treat for every football fan – a visit to Camp Nou Stadium (Futbol Club Barcelona), Spain.

To build confidence and reassure customers, Thomas Cook India & SOTC’s tours include the companies’ TravShield – Travel Safety Commitment, encompassing meticulous safety protocols in association with Apollo Clinics: vaccinated travel advisors & contactless bookings, free re-scheduling & cancellation, Covid insurance cover with 24/7 doctor on call, vaccinated / Covid negative fellow travellers, Covid negative / vaccinated drivers, hotel staff, sanitized rooms & vehicles.  

Mr. Rajeev Kale, President & Country Head, Holidays, MICE, Visa, Thomas Cook (India) Limited said, “With the announcement of several European countries re-opening for fully vaccinated Indians, we have been quick with the design and launch of very special tours to favourite destinations like France, Germany and Switzerland; also a chance to witness the stunning Northern Lights in Iceland and Russia.
