Thomas Cook – the components of interrelationships

Thomas Cook is a large tour operator and has complex chains of distributions through many levels.
Example:
-Sales indirectly to customers via high street retail  agents (Thomas Cook Stores),via web-based agents (Direct Holidays)
-Sunset Holidays (Travel agent) rely on  Air tours as the charter airline to get the customers to the destination

-Hotels sell rooms to Sentido Hotels and Hotels 4 U, which gets them more bookings as they are more published and more customers will then be able to research about the hotel, whereas if the hotel just had its own website it might be harder for the customer to find.
