Mumbai, April 10, 2018: Thomas Cook (India) Ltd., India’s leading integrated travel and travel related financial services company, launched its “Incredible India Week”, to leverage the strong potential of Indian travellers keen on discovering India.

Abraham Alapatt, President & Group Head - Marketing, Service Quality, Financial Services & Innovation, Thomas Cook India said, “A significant trend emerging from our consumer analytics is the Indian consumers’ interest in multiple domestic holidays a year- both during school vacations and shorter breaks throughout the year. With increase in access-connectivity, government initiatives such as UDAN and improved tourism infrastructure on-ground, we saw opportunity to focus on the yet underleveraged domestic segment.
