Key Highlights

In September 2019 Thomas Cook went into liquidation causing rolling chaos throughout the travel industry as it left 150,000 British holidaymakers stranded and 21,000 jobs at risk

When Thomas Cook went out of business, it was about £1.7bn in debt to banks with a further £1.3bn owed to suppliers.

A parliamentary committee leading an inquiry into the failure of the travel giant also issued a damning verdict of mismanagement by successive bosses.

A rescue deal involving £200 million to enable Thomas Cook to weather the winter season was abandoned.
