Travel Deals Tempt Tennis Fans

July 20, 2011

LONDON — Travel experts Thomas Cook (LSE:TCG) are keeping the holiday season going with a raft of new deals and discounts on city breaks and last minute holidays to the US and other top destinations.

For many UK travellers who have opted to spend their summer holidays at home – thousands are making the most of ‘staycations’ as a cheaper and eco-friendly alternative to long haul flights — the autumn is a perfect time to get away.

Thomas Cook recognises the loyalty of its customers and in return is giving an added £40 off any spend over £700. This is on top of up to 30% discounts on city breaks to locations such as Las Vegas and New York.

For Andy Murray fans who loved Wimbledon, this is the perfect opportunity to combine a good value holiday to the States with the beginning of the hard court tennis season.

With ATP tournaments from Atlanta to Cincinnati, there are plenty of chances to catch your favourites in smaller venues — and see the great American cities at the same time.

Most popular will be the New York deals, starting as low as £483 per person for 4 nights in the world’s most lively city. The Big Apple is also host to the final grand slam tournament of the year — the prestigious US Open at Flushing Meadows, in Queens, NY, from 29th August to 11th September.

World No. 1 and Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic will aim to extend his incredible run at the top of men’s tennis — and with a Thomas Cook New York break, you could pop your head in for little more than it costs for a weekend at Wimbledon.
