Expotel, the hotel reservations, business travel and event organisers has launched Expotel Leisure after signing a deal with the Thomas Cook Group.

Expotel chief executive Ian Burnley said the new product will give Expotel clients a 5% discount with all of the operator’s different operator brands, around 150 in total.

He said: “We book cost-effective accommodation and business travel for our customers so naturally many have asked for us to do the same for their leisure travel. This is a natural extension of our core services.”

Thomas Cook Group head of travel clubs James Coughlan added: “Thomas Cook’s Affinity Travel Club provides Expotel’s clients with a dedicated telephone number that links to a state-of-the-art call centre which is open 8am to 10pm, seven days a week and 364 days a year.

“This partnership with Expotel enables them to increase their service offering to clients and guarantee favourable discounts on holidays.”
