European travel packages

Excitement about Manchester United’s 2011/12 European campaign is well and truly building with the Reds set to take on Basel, Benfica, and Otelul Galati in the group stages of the Champions League.

Thomas Cook Sport has announced travel packages for fans to follow the Reds to Switzerland, Portugal and Romania en route to hopefully more glory in the world's biggest club football competition.

As official travel partner of Manchester United, Thomas Cook Sport is offering supporters the chance to see United compete in Europe. Packages starting from £229 include return flights, transfers and guaranteed official match ticket*, with the option of adding accommodation.

Danny Talbot, Managing Director of Thomas Cook Sport, said: “English football is right at the heart of European football, with four English teams looking to make history in this year’s competition. United fans will be travelling across Europe to see these fixtures and we’re delighted to launch a range of travel options to suit their needs, hopefully taking them all the way to Munich for the Final in May!”
