Thomas Cook closes websites

Thomas Cook closes websites

Thomas Cook is planning to close two of its co-operative websites which will result in the loss of 14 jobs.

The websites www.co-opholidays.co.uk and www.ski-direct.co.uk www.ski-direct.co.uk will be closed as the Co-operative Travel website offers the same products and is receiving the majority of customer traffic.

Traffic from these two similar sites will now be
redirected to www.co-operativetravel.co.uk.

“Since Thomas Cook, The Co-operative Travel and the Midlands Co-operative formed a joint venture last year, we’ve always said that we would
conduct a full review of all the business functions and look to integrate and strengthen the combined business by addressing underperforming areas and minimising overlap and duplication,” a Thomas Cook spokesman revealed.

“We are working closely with those 14 affected colleagues as they go through the consultation and notice period.”
