Thomas Cook Sport unveiled as Edinburgh Rugby's Official Travel Partner

The UK’s leading sports tour operator, Thomas Cook Sport, has today been unveiled as the Official Travel Partner for Guinness PRO14 club Edinburgh Rugby.

L-R: Ben Toolis, Stuart McInally and Sean Kennedy help launch the new partnership

Thomas Cook Sport will provide industry leading team travel operations for the club’s senior squad from September, as Richard Cockerill looks to guide his side through their league and European campaigns. With this year’s introduction of two South African sides, the competition will be stronger than ever before.

Thomas Cook Sport has a long history of providing Rugby Union products, including full breaks for the recent British and Irish Lions tour in New Zealand. Hospitality packages for the upcoming 2017 Autumn Internationals are now on sale and fans can also register their interest in ticket and hotel breaks for the 2018 RBS Six Nations.

Rob Slawson, Head of Thomas Cook Sport, said: “We’re delighted to add Edinburgh Rugby to our Rugby Union portfolio. Our team is looking forward to working with the club’s supporters and serving the club’s operations off the pitch as we deliver our best in class Team Travel service.”

Edinburgh Rugby Managing Director, Jonny Petrie, said: “We’re delighted to have Thomas Cook Sport – a leader in their field – join Edinburgh Rugby’s partner family.

“Their logistical support to the players and staff will be invaluable in the season ahead, but the excellent packages available to fans will hopefully encourage the black and red army to get behind their team domestically and further afield.

“We look forward to working with Thomas Cook Sport and to growing our partnership together.”
