Thomas Cook and Going Places do not allow the full 15 per cent discount on every tour company; most notably, they give only a 5 per cent discount on holidays by Thomson, the biggest tour operator. Lunn Poly gives 15 per cent off every holiday from any of the 352 tour operators it sells. Co-op Travelcare extends its discount to cover charter flights. The Co-op gives pounds 15 off in every pounds 100 on any operator's holidays, but the discount applies only to whole units of pounds 100. So a holiday costing pounds 299 earns a discount of pounds 30, while one costing pounds 301 gets pounds 45 off.
All the big agents have 'low- deposit' schemes. The Co-op's is best: no payment is required until March; its competitors insist on a pound or a fiver upfront.Reuse content
