Scandenevia is a dream destination. We wanted to make sure that we are making the right choice. We put an inquiry to Thomas Cook via HolidayRewardz and went ahead with the same. As a gift, we got a free SIM Card for use on our trip to Scandenevia. That was so good.
Anjali Srivastava, Mumbai
I have to admit, the free SIM Card was the deal clincher. I would have gone directly to Thomas Cook to book the European holiday but I simply had to pick up the free SIM Card. So I inquired via HolidayRewardz and booked via Thomas Cook. Two birds with one stone :-)
