About

History

We have been established as an independent insurance brokerage for over 60 years, giving us a unique perspective on the market.

We believe we are one of the UK’s longest established independent insurance brokers, formed some 60 years ago, in 1946 as Thomas Cook Insurance Broker.

Over the years, we developed a solid reputation for the quality of our service, market knowledge and capability to provide a solution combining value with the highest levels of cover.

Most of our client base has been gained by recommendation, gradually extending beyond the North West to take in the rest of the UK & Overseas.

In 1999, we were one of ten founding members of Willis Towers Watson Networks, which was formed to give brokers access to a wider range of resources and a dedicated panel of leading insurers.

Today, we are known as Thomas Cook and operate under the guidance of Managing Director, John Cook.

Still based in Burnley, we serve a nationwide client base, comprising mid range corporates and large commercial organisations across all sectors, and are highly skilled in the field of risk assessment.

We work with several international companies placing business abroad, providing help and support, backed by years of experience and expertise in this area, giving us an in-depth understanding of the complexities involved.
