Thomas Cook ceases trading

We’re sorry to learn that Thomas Cook has ceased trading and recognise the impact on its customers and staff in the UK and abroad. 

We are working closely with our Virgin Atlantic colleagues, who are participating in the Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) repatriation of Thomas Cook customers impacted in Cuba, Jamaica and the United States, to ensure they will be able to complete their journey as planned. Virgin Atlantic have allocated available space on their scheduled flights, and are also providing special flights to repatriate Thomas Cook passengers abroad. For more information, please visit

We understand this will be a difficult time for the many people who have worked hard for such a well-known holiday brand. We encourage Thomas Cook staff to review the roles we’re currently recruiting for, which includes new opportunities in our customer centre and retail stores.

Information for Thomas Cook customers

If your package holiday has been cancelled due to Thomas Cook falling into administration, you can apply for a refund from ABTA or ATOL, depending on whether your package included flights. Otherwise contact your travel insurer or check whether your credit card provider offer any protection under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act.

Our worry free guarantee

Worry Free Guarantee

Worry Free Guarantee


There are some things you really don't want to hear when you're about to take a well earned break.

... your flight has been cancelled and you can't reach your destination within a reasonable amount of time: You can change to another holiday with us. We'll always try to keep it the same price too (although we're sure you'll understand, a change from the Isle of Man to the Island of Mauritius may require you to pay the difference). Otherwise, if we can't give you a holiday, we'll give you a full refund.

... your flight home is cancelled: We'll simply book you a new one with the help of all our airline partners. If it's not leaving for a couple of days, never fear, we'll assist you booking a hotel too. And just so friends and family back home don't think you've gone all Shirley Valentine, we'll help you get in touch with them, so nothing to worry about there either.
