Thomas Cook launches new broadband offering

Thomas Cook has launched a new service specifically designed for people accessing the web through broadband connections.

The new service, which was developed by Thomas Cook TV and will enable web users to take virtual tours of more than 200 hotels and resorts when they are trying to book travel arrangements.

The site will feature video content and information about holiday resorts. To promote the new service NTL is installing broadband onto PCs in flagship Thomas Cook stores, and the site will also be accessible through the NTL World site as well as on thomascook.com.

"There is noting like booking a holiday," said Thomas Cook head Katherine Gershon.

"Being able to see the resort and the hotel where you are going to stay not only means that you won't be disappointed when you get there, but being able to picture where you are going adds to the anticipation and excitement."
