Thomas Cook Travel Launches City Escapes to tap demand for Mini Vacations to Europe


Thomas Cook Travel Services said it has launched an initiative – ‘City Escapes’ to tap the growing demand for very short vacations. Despite the pandemic, international travel remains high on the Indian consumer’s bucket list, and Europe is a clear favorite, Thomas Cook India said in a filing to BSE. The ‘City Escapes’ was conceptualized to offer Indians bite-sized breaks in and around Europe, it added.

“Indian consumers are displaying a growing appetite for mini-cations that are convenient and flexible. Therefore, our City Escapes have been thoughtfully designed to include centrally located hotels for easy access, optional top-ups with a diversity of experiences – and at very affordable pricing,” Thomas Cook (India) Holidays, MICE, Visa – President & Country Head Rajeev Kale said.

Iconic destinations such as Istanbul, Budapest, Salzburg, Vienna, Helsinki, Krakow; millennial favorites of Prague, and Zagreb, among others are included in City Escapes, Thomas Cook India said.
