About us

Welcome to the Freedom Travel Group

Freedom Travel Group is part of The Thomas Cook Co-operative Travel Group, one of the largest travel organisations in the UK. It is backed by the heritage, strength and integrity of The Co-operative Group, the world largest consumer co-operative and the UK’s most trusted brand.*

The Thomas Cook Co-operative Travel are in a unique position to offer the very best deals over a greater range of products.  Their strength, expertise and position in the market place makes it possible to obtain the very best commercial terms, on your behalf, from a wide range of tour operators and travel suppliers.

Freedom Travel Group was established in early 2001 and is an organisation of managed travel agents working together to secure a profitable future. It was originally formed to enable travel agents to become part of a larger buying group benefiting from better commissions, larger overrides, lower operating costs, lower bank charges and better technology.

Many travel agents believe that in order to thrive and prosper in the future, it is vital to become part of a larger buying group. Freedom Travel Group is well placed to offer such an opportunity, with excellent benefits, but without the politics and the unnecessary burden of an expensive management structure.

The Freedom Travel Group will offer you the opportunity to operate your own travel business whilst at the same time knowing you are part of SOMETHING BIGGER.  It’s about working with the protection of ABTA and ATOL; it’s about training and support, and about working with some of the most talented individuals in the UK travel business.
