This is the LAST summer for Club 18-30 – and Brits can get decent discounts

Thomas Cook has confirmed it will be axing the raunchy breaks for good after admitting earlier this week that it was “exploring options” for 18-30 holidays.

The holiday firm said in a statement: “We… intend to discontinue the UK market’s Club 18-30 holiday brand after summer 2018 as a result of the continued strategic review of our differentiated holiday offer.”

The operator has announced that it will focus on its new hotel brand Cook’s Club instead – as millennials shy away from holidays revolving around sex and booze.

It said: “We also have high hopes for our new hotel brand, Cook’s Club, which we plan to roll out at scale for summer 2019 to attract a new generation of design-conscious holidaymakers to Thomas Cook at great value prices.”

Earlier this week Thomas Cook announced that it had done research into what young people want from a holiday.

It seems they now want "ego trips", which are holidays which make friends envious, rather than holidays full of drunken debauchery.

During the Club 18-30 peak it unashamedly boasted of its reputation for casual sex and drunkenness with the slogan: “It’s go big or go home and only the legendary will do.”

However you’ll still have this summer if you want to book onto an 18-30 holiday – and there are some rock-bottom deals available for them if you do.

A week at the Ellenis Studios & Apartments in Zante comes in at £145pp including flights.

Or you could head off for a week of partying at Laura S’Atalya Studios & Apartments in Ibiza for £156pp including flights.

But you'll have to book fast – as this will be the last time the company offers the boozy breaks.

Sun Online Travel previously delved into the history of the 18-30 holiday – which became a rite of passage for Brits from 1965 onwards.
