Thomson launches new smartphone app for holidaymakers

With the winter sun holiday period just around the corner, Thomson has launched a brand new smartphone app which includes discount vouchers, information on local events and bookable excursions.

The free downloadable app allows users to take advantage of special offers while on holiday, find out about events happening in the resort they are staying as well as being able to search and book Thomson excursions direct from their smartphone.

With over half of the UK now owning a smartphone, Thomson’s new app makes it easier for holidaymakers to get the most out of their holiday.

The real key feature of the MyThomson app is the ‘Special Offers’ tab.

Thomson’s overseas teams have negotiated the best deals around for a wide range of holiday hotspots.

For example, accessing the special offers tab can save you money on meals out, get free activities for children, free t shirts and even a free cocktail at the Hard Rock café.

With October half term soon approaching, parents will be able to plan overseas activities in advance and take advantage of the great deals Thomson has to offer.

The ‘What’s On’ section of the app displays a list of activities going on in the selected resort with details of when and where to be, to make sure holidaymakers don’t miss out. These range from clubbing nights out to fun family friendly events.

Thomson Holiday experience director Ian Chapman said: “We are thrilled to be leading the way in mobile technology within the travel industry.

“With a huge number of holidaymakers preparing themselves for their winter sun breaks and with more wi-fi spots in our resorts than ever before as well as roaming tariffs set to come down, this is a great time to offer our customers the free app.”

The ‘MyThomson’ smartphone app is now available to download from the Apple App Store.

While iPhone users will experience the benefits of the app first, it will be coming to Android and Blackberry smartphones in the near future.
