The Package Tour Industry


If you have seen 'Holidays From Hell' and the Easy Jet series on television then you will know after reading this book that those programs barely scratch the surface. The Package Tour Industry by Vincent Cobb gives us a wonderful insight into the history of this relatively new industry and at its outset featuring a world of dilapidated hotels populated by indifferent hoteliers deliberately overbooking rooms along with inadequately serviced aircraft journeying passengers on mile high rollercoaster rides often through violent storms and after interminable delays. Millions of us take package holidays for granted every year but did you ever wonder how it all began? Thanks to Vincent Cobb, who began his career in the Travel Industry as a modest clerk and rose to become Joint Managing director of Thomson Holidays, we can learn about all the hardships and the many disasters that plagued the Industry and which formed the basis of the business at its outset. This fascinating book allows us to observe the industries steep learning curve from its infancy in the late 50's to the present day using you the public as guinea pigs. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for a bumpy ride!
