Thomas Cook was a cabinet-maker who founded the world’s first travel agency, Thomas Cook & Son, in 1841. Over the years, it grew to be a multinational travel agency and a major player in the hospitality industry. The company chartered passenger airlines, organized package holidays, operated cruise lines, hotels, and resorts all over the world. However, in 23rd September 2019, despite attempts on revival, the company unfortunately declared financially insolvent and ceased trading.
While still in operation, the company offered its customers numerous custom promotional travel merchandise. In this blog, we will take a deeper glance into some of the different popular custom merchandise sold by the company. Let’s go!
Model aircraft are one of the most popular travel souvenirs. People on vacation always like to return home with memorabilia from their travel to give to friends and family. This miniature model of a plane is an example of one such classic souvenir. The model is a scaled-down version of an actual plane, complete with custom branding. Moreover, the petite and compact design of the aircraft means that it can be stored and displayed anywhere. Therefore, it is a great product for raising brand awareness.
This unique idea of incorporating a sandal design into beach towel clamps is not only creative and eye-catchy, but is also practical. To add on, this highly customizable design allows for an endless amount of possibilities for promotional products. Furthermore, the peculiar design of this product is sure to draw in attention from passers-by, as it will stand out significantly.
Inflatable Beach Pillow
Consumers are sure to find this promotional product extremely useful. Its practical use can be utilized everywhere, be it laying on the beach, taking afternoon naps, when on camping trips, or even during airplane flights. In addition, this product offers plentiful space for branding, be it a simple logo or a full-on design. Additionally, the inflatable feature of the pillow allows customers to easily carry it anywhere they go, which has the simultaneous effect of acting as a walking billboard for the brand, advertising it wherever the customer goes. Therefore, this product makes for an amazing promotional gift.
Everyone likes plush toys, especially children! That is the reason why they make such a great promotional product. These plush toys from Thomas Cook come in a range of different animals such as bears, dogs, cats or giraffes. What’s more, these plush toys are dressed up in pilot outfits, which also means that there is an endless variety of other outfits that can be custom designed to put on these plush toys.
Merchandise from companies that cease production will become a retro/collectible item sought after by collectors. With production being limited, the rarity and value of the items will be exponentially increased. The demand for such limited edition products will hike and interested buyers are willing to fork out more money for the same product.
