Sawiris buys Thomas Cook..

Now if you have ever visited El Gouna you will understand this is a very clever family.

There are a lot of Germans that visit El Gouna and Brits, Eyti's ect..
One can often see Samih cycling around speaking to guests.

Best not to look to closely into how he made his billions.

Stupid he ain’t......although his purchase of Aston Villa isn’t looking too clever ! :))) :)))

He appears to already own Thomas Cook, Netherlands, (and other Dutch agencies) but this new story is just about the purchase of the German affiliate - not the UK corpse. https://egyptindependent.com/egyptian-b ... k-germany/

It amazes me that the agent based system has survived 15 years of internet based booking direct with venues and I always think using agents says something for the intelligence and lack of independence of certain nations/classes - psycho-geriatrics excused.

With the massive China tourism trade the rule for the under 40's seems to be - 1st trip booked with an agent - 2nd trip booked oneself so a Sawiris future of being tied to agents might not be as smart as appears to some.
