Package holiday prices sold by Thomas Cook up 9 per cent for summer 2017
Increase is due to high hotel rates in Spain and firm's move to 'quality holidays'
Thomas Cook, the UK's second-biggest tour operator, says the average selling price of its package holidays for the coming summer is 9 per cent higher than 2016, largely as a result of rate-hikes by Spanish hoteliers and a move to more upmarket product.
Partly because of the prevailing high prices in Spain, bookings to Greece for summer 2017 are up by nearly half. Customer confidence in Turkey is still in decline, but numbers to Hurghada in Egypt are increasing.
Thomas Cook has just announced its results for the first quarter of its fiscal year, covering October to December 2016.
Revenue for the first quarter rose by 1 per cent to £1,618m, with the usual seasonal loss £1m lower at £49m.
Peter Fankhauser, chief executive of Thomas Cook, said: “Bookings to Greece are currently up by over 40 per cent, while demand for destinations such as Cyprus, Bulgaria, Portugal and Croatia is also strong.
Hargreaves Lansdown Broker Consensus:
3months ago 50% buy/sell
Today 75% buy / 25% sell
2 outa 4 neutral / 2 outa 4 strong buy
9th Feb AlphaValue Reiterates BUY target £1.35
16th Feb JP Morgan Reiterates Neutral target 92p
9th Feb Berenberg Reiterates HOLD target 80p
9th Feb Shore CAPITOL Retains HOLD no target
November 2016 and earlier, Brokers notes were:
Barclays Capitol, 90p
Goldman Sachs, 57p
These are now well out of date and due a rerating, hopefully as the share price is now rising and as the company moves into the summer season, more realistic targets will be set, but who knows….
HL Comment a bit out of date being 19th May 2016, an update I would think is expected soon.
Looking back at the share price From today.
1 week up 1.13%
1 month up 4.91%
3 months up 5.97%
6 months up 27.05%
General trend is edging upwards ……
12 months 14% down !
If TCG Breaks 97.30p the share price will then be moving “up” on the year to date.
Don’t forget we have a 0.50p divi payment due, as previously declared by TCG.
Ex divi date: 9th March 2017. Payment date 5th April.
aimho dyor always.
Still holding and looking forward to the share price once again getting over the £1 barrier, not imposible, not far to go.
|This has been in a tight trading spread of 5p since 16/12/16, any comments/views from this board|
|Fosun bought a few to take it over 10% - why???|
|doesn't look like K|
|Were back over 90. Lets see if we can hold and push towards the £ 1.....:)|
|Needs a good kicking this lot.... never mind the Snow analogy.|
|Gargleblaster: agree entirely, its just me looking at the short term share price movemnets over the last few months where we have just been hovering between points, yes longer term since Aug 16 the trend is firmly up and looks like its going to continue all be it slow at the moment pending further news flow/results later in the year, its just after that awful drop from circa £1.80 (when brokers were saying £2.20 was still possible) down to circa 54p, was a hard pill to swallow (considering the holding I have equates to a considerable sum) my own fault, have traded a few along the way taking a profit hear and there, as for my core holding, I remained steady not selling, and hence were now touching 90p....
Any way as we move forward through 2017, I'm hopeful (unless another fly drops into the mix) we see the share price climb and move closer to the £1.15/1.20 bench mark where I will feel much happier.
I've had my moan now. aghaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.!
All in mho of course, and DYOR :)
|i will have to moan more often...|
|Mkt awaiting further confirmation of the resilience of its business model that's all. The uptrend since Brexit dip remains in place|
|jonesey/kumala - not sure if I am with you. The share price has been on an upward trend since July last year, and based on current cheap valuation metrics, there should be a long upward road ahead.....|
|Yip...and all quiet.....no spark in the share price at all. Saying that better i the 80,s than the 59,s / 60,s bracket....Regards....K:)|
|like watching snow melt this one...disappearing slowly.. AGONY >>>>>|
|Almost half of Germans with an interest in traveling to the U.S. won’t do so now because they feel unwelcome or don’t want to endorse President Donald Trump.
About 46 percent of Germans who would like to visit the U.S. “in principle” have changed their views on that destination since Trump took office and won’t travel there as a result, according to a survey by GfK SE published in travel-industry magazine fvw.
The findings don’t bode well for Europe’s travel industry, as tour operators including TUI AG and Thomas Cook Group Plc are already dealing with the fallout of reduced travel to the Middle East amid concerns about security. Travel operators have been benefiting from a boom in long-haul travel, and the U.S. had become especially popular among Germans, who make up the biggest customer group for both TUI and Thomas Cook.
Transatlantic routes are among the most profitable for Deutsche Lufthansa AG, and Air Berlin Plc expanded its long-haul fleet as it increases its flight program to North America. Millions of sun-seekers avoiding destinations in the eastern Mediterranean and northern Africa have been turning to Spain, Portugal and Greece.
Among the Germans polled by GfK, 36 percent said they’d continue to travel to the U.S., as they differentiate between politics and Americans’ warm-heartedness. About 17 percent stated that national politics had no impact on their travel plans. GfK polled 1,004 people in the Germany between Feb. 3 and Feb 10.|

8 mln foreign tourists ‘expected to visit Antalya in 2017’
Around 7.5 to 8 million foreign tourists are expected to visit the Mediterranean province of Antalya over this year, following a daunting year for Turkey, a leading tourism player has said.
The number of foreigners visiting Turkey, mainly Istanbul and Antalya, declined to 25.3 million in 2016, a 30 percent drop compared to 2015, after a series of bomb attacks, a diplomatic crisis with Russia, and the failed July 15, 2016 coup attempt.
Professional Hoteliers Association (POYD) President Hakan Duran said the Russian market has started presenting attraction to Turkey again, as early bookings from them were growing in high numbers.
“We expect around 7.5 to 8 million foreign tourists to visit Antalya this year, which will represent a 30 percent increase compared to 2016,” he said, as quoted by state-run Anadolu Agency.
Half of Russia’s holidaymakers have chosen Turkey as their top travel destination in 2017, a recent report released by the Association of Tour Operators in Russia (ATOR) stated, citing estimates from the country’s tour operators and agencies.
“We have expected around 2 to 2.5 million Russian tourists to visit Antalya this year. If an average of 2.5 million Russians visited Antalya this year, we can close 2017 with around 7.5 to 8 million foreign arrivals, even in the scenario of some 1 million losses from the European market,” said Duran.
He added that there was a strong recovery in the U.K. market, as many Brits wanted to visit Antalya, however the same trend could not be seen for many other European markets, including Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Duran also noted that around 650,000 to 700,000 Israeli tourists were expected to visit Antalya this year.
