Bed bank WebBeds has announced a partnership with the new Thomas Cook OTA.
WebBeds is providing Thomas Cook with access to a selection of its 30,000+ directly-contracted hotels in beach destinations and cities around the world. Choices will range from affordable independent hotels, to beach resorts, to international five-star hotel chains.
Cook has launched as a “Covid-ready” travel company, which means it only sells destinations that are on the UK’s travel corridor list and all of the hotels are flexible. Cook last week committed to refunds within 14 days of cancellation and has waived amendment fees on changes to holiday bookings this year.
Paul Hewer, WebBeds’ regional director of sales North Europe said: “We are pleased to be working with Thomas Cook again following the launch of their online-only business. The depth and breadth of our accommodation inventory means that whatever holiday a Thomas Cook customer wants, it can be supplied through WebBeds.”
Emma King, head of commercial product, at Thomas Cook, added: “When launching our new business we wanted to work with partners that would provide our customers with the best choice and flexibility.
"We also knew we wanted a partner that had strict health and safety integral to their hotel contracting. Our relationship with WebBeds gives our customers access to an excellent selection of hotels and accommodation in our key destinations across the world’s beach and city holiday spots.”
