THOMSON TRAVEL'S RESPONSE
TO PREUSSAG DECLARING OFFER UNCONDITIONAL

Following the announcement by Preussag AG ('Preussag')  that  it
has  declared  its  Offer  for Thomson  Travel  Group  ('Thomson
Travel') wholly unconditional, Charles Gurassa, Chief Executive,
Thomson Travel Group said:

'We  are delighted that following regulatory clearance, Preussag
has  declared  its  Offer  wholly unconditional.   We  now  look
forward  to working closely with our new colleagues at  Preussag
as  part  of the world's leading leisure travel group.  For  our
employees,  this  is good news as it will open  up  more  career
opportunities.  Thomson  Travel  and  Preussag   share   similar
philosophies  based on providing excellent quality  holidays  at
attractive  prices.   In  the future,  we  believe  the  group's
customers  will  benefit from even greater  choice  and  product
quality. We are particularly pleased that Founders Club  Members
will   continue   to  enjoy  their  benefits  under   Preussag's
ownership.

'As far as Thomson Travel's trading position is concerned, as we
enter the important late trading season, performance to date  is
in line with our expectations.'
