Thirty independent agents will head to Florida on Thomas Cook’s first ever mega fam to Florida.

Agents will fly on Thomas Cook  Airlines from Manchester on April 15 and stay at Universal Orlando Resort.

Every time agents book a Thomas Cook, Airtours, Manos, Club 18-30, Thomas Cook Signature charter holiday, or Thomas Cook Airlines flight-only, by the end of February they earn an entry into the draw. Bookings for packages to Florida will get double entries and winning agents will be notified in the first week of March.

Phil Gardner, head of commercial, sales and relations at Thomas Cook said: “We want to reward as many of our independent agent partners as possible, and for them to experience what their customers can book with us first- hand.

“As our most popular long-haul destination so far for summer 2018, Florida is the ideal choice for our first ever mega fam trip. We are confident that the winning agents will not only have a great time, but also come back more knowledgeable about our fantastic Thomas Cook holidays, award-winning Thomas Cook Airlines and the destination itself.”

Thomas Cook has also announced the return of its “Live Lounge” VIP events for the sixth year running, and is offering independent agents 10 events this year compared to six in 2017. Agents can enter a prize draw to see artists such as Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith in concerts across the UK every time they book a Thomas Cook, Airtours, Manos, Club 18-30 or Thomas Cook Signature charter holiday up to the end of February.

A “wildcard” event has also been introduced where the artist has not yet been revealed.
