If you've ever had a meltdown trying to get your summer holiday sorted then never fear, Thomas Cook is about to launch a set of ads aimed at highlighting some of the problems you might encounter along the way – hopefully making you chuckle at the same time. From the 1st June, these ads will feature the 'every family' of four, including the comic brilliance of Brit favourite James Nesbitt as the dad.
There are lots of laughs on offer, and more than a few familiar holiday faux pas that Thomas Cook promises to make a thing of the past! From the initial look online to taking your seat for your trip home, there will be no nasty surprises with a Thomas Cook holiday and you'll know exactly what you're getting from start to finish. Whether you're looking for family holidays or romantic package holidays, these ads show just how easy getting away can be.
The first of the series shows a major wardrobe malfunction, with dad disgracing himself by losing his trunks when taking the pool play too far - much to the disgust of a nearby family! Thomas Cook solves the problem with their offering of 230 amazing water slides at one of the 28 incredible Aquamania resorts all over the world.
In another, dad is desperately trying to exchange some currency with a confused cheese seller. The only thing that's sure to ruin all inclusive family holidays is making your way out of the resort, realising you haven't brought enough cash and paying obscene conversion rates. However Thomas Cook’s simple service for reserving travel money online offers 0% commission and the choice of over 80 currencies, so you'll always have enough to indulge in some trinkets from your trip.
For couples looking to spend some quality time together, the ad for the ‘look before you book’ option on Thomas Cook’s website should strike a chord. Most of us have been fooled by deceptive photos in holiday brochures but with previews of Thomas Cook hotels online and customer reviews from Trip Advisor, you know what you're getting before you go. However, dad gets more than he expected when he walks in on an unsuspecting couple in the bathroom - a holiday mishap that's thankfully a little less familiar to the majority of us!
So tune in to the ads for plenty of laughs as well as some simple solutions to common holiday problems.
