Tailor Made Travel has plans to open up to 10 agencies in South Wales in former Thomas Cook premises.

Chief executive Simon Morgan has already recruited six former Thomas Cook staff to join his existing retail network of 18 stores.

Morgan has started an analysis of the potential profitability of the Cook stores and said “successful and motivated” staff who worked there were “almost guaranteed” jobs if he brought them back to life.

“Our financial team is putting together a strategy of potentially [taking over] 10 existing Thomas Cook stores. We are running an analysis now into the profitability of each of those towns. The proposal is looking at 10 Thomas Cook stores in towns where Tailor Made doesn’t exist. These would be launched on an escalated basis.

“We will look at all the Thomas Cook staff. Tailor Made is about recruiting the best of the best, but I would say successful and motivated staff are almost guaranteed work.”
