Our history


In 1841, young Thomas Cook arranged an 11-mile train journey for a motley group of passengers from Leicester to Loughborough. And it marked the beginning of a chapter in history. He went on to introduce a railway tour of Europe. But it wasn't until the early 1860s that he began the travel firm, Thomas Cook & Son, which included tours of the USA. The Company also started operations for military transport and postal services for England and Egypt during the 1880s.

On July 5, 1841, young Thomas Cook arranged an 11-mile train journey priced at merely 1 shilling, for a motley group of 570 passengers from Leicester to Loughborough. And this marked the beginning of a chapter in travel history. He went on to introduce a railway tour of Europe. But it wasn't until the early 1860s that he began the travel firm, Thomas Cook & Son, which included tours of the USA. The Company also started operations for military transport and postal services for England and Egypt during the 1880s.

Thomas Cook has widely been acclaimed as the founder of world tourism, and in addition to the world’s first package tour in 1841, Thomas Cook introduced a number of customer empowering innovations that we take for granted today: pre-paid hotel coupons (in 1868), holiday brochures (in 1858) and travellers cheques (in 1874).

The world got around and by the early 1900s, the who's who of the era - kings, politicians, bishops and professors - patronised Thomas Cook's travel itinerary.

As the years passed by, the Company introduced the world to a whole new concept of leisure and business travel. Driving innovation in the business, it connected continents and presented the people an economic and state mode of travel across them.

In 1881, Thomas Cook started its India operations, with its first office being set up in Mumbai. As it expanded its horizons across the subcontinent, the Company came to be known as Thomas Cook Overseas Ltd. And on 21st October 1978, it was christened Thomas Cook (India) Ltd, only to make its first public issue in February 1983. In the year 2000, the Group commenced its operations in Mauritius and also acquired the Sri Lanka business from Thomas Cook Overseas Ltd, UK. In 2006, Thomas Cook (India) Limited acquired LKP Forex Limited and Travel Corporation (India) Pvt. Ltd. (TCI). In May 2012, Thomas Cook Group plc, UK (the erstwhile parent) sold its investment in Thomas Cook (India) Limited (TCIL) to Fairbridge Capital (Mauritius) Limited (Fairbridge). Fairbridge made an open offer to the non-promoters and post August 14, 2012, TCIL is part of Fairfax Group, Canada.
