Cook offers break deals for latest Games ticket purchasers

Thomas Cook is offering Olympic Games breaks starting at £99 on the day of the next round of the public ballot for tickets to London 2012.

Those who missed out in previous rounds now have first pick of tickets.

Cook, which claims Olympic breaks are 70% sold, is offering an overnight at the budget Ibis hotel at Heathrow to see the men’s preliminary volleyball at Earl's Court on August 2-3 including a Travelcard at £99.

Prices rise to £5,499 per person to attend the opening ceremony in the Olympic Stadium on July 27 plus beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade the following day, based on two nights at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge.

The cost of attending the closing ceremony on August 12 including a night at the Holiday Inn Mayfair starts at £1,899pp.

Stephen Vaughan, managing director of Cook's London 2012 Partnership said: "Sports fans who didn’t enter the first and second round of the public ballot for tickets will have to wait a few days to apply for whatever tickets remain, but as Olympic fever takes hold, we've still got a limited number of much sought after tickets on sale as part of our short breaks offering.

“Starting at £99, our Games Breaks are also perfect for those who’ve already managed to secure a ticket in the ballot and are now looking for a hotel or a longer Olympic experience.

”With less than 80 days remaining until the Opening Ceremony, it really is time to secure your seat at this once-in-a-lifetime event.”
