Thomson Launches Summer 2012 Holidays

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 21, 2011) - Leading tour operator, Thomson has launched three new Summer 12 brochures; Summer Collection, Faraway Shores and Florida. Following on from sister-brand First Choice's move to 100% All Inclusive from next summer, Thomson will continue to offer holidays across all boards, from room only in Florida, to all inclusive at its exclusive Sensatori properties.

Due to First Choice's re-branding, all Florida properties will now be available through Thomson, and to reflect this, a new Florida brochure launches today containing all the top International-drive hotels, villas and Theme Park hotels.

Thomson will continue to add to its exclusive differentiated product offering, with six new Thomson Couples hotels and three new Thomson Family Resorts for next summer. Thomson has also introduced 12 new regional flying routes from next summer, to increase flexibility and choice for customers.

New Brochure: Thomson Florida

All First Choice Florida properties have migrated to Thomson and will be included in the brand new Thomson Florida brochure. The new brochure will also include the same amount of Disney coverage as First Choice, so customers will have the same amount of choice as before.

Six Additions to Thomson Couples Portfolio

Following the successful launch of Thomson Couples for summer 2011, Thomson is expanding its offering for next summer adding six more properties, bringing the grand total of Couples hotels to 25. These contemporary adult-only properties are all rated 4T or above.

More Family-Friendly: Three New Thomson Family Resorts

Further to the launch of this sub-brand last summer, three more Thomson Family Resorts have been added to the range for next summer. These exclusive hotels are perfect for young families, with a minimum rating of 4T, and come with large family rooms, creches, extensive childcare facilities and entertainment from Thomson Kids' Clubs, plus extras like pre-bookable Mothercare equipment.

All brochures and holidays will be available and on sale across all Thomson retail stores and online at
