The world’s first travel agency got its start thanks to a train trip. In 1841, Englishman Thomas Cook, a Baptist minister, organized a train excursion for 540 p...arishioners to attend a temperance meeting in London. Cook negotiated a set fare for passengers, including tickets and a meal. The trip was so successful that he expanded his operations, first within the United Kingdom and then to the United States and Europe, providing passengers with comprehensive packages including transportation, accommodations and meals. In 1873, the agency, now known as Thomas Cook and Son, launched an international railway timetable that is still published today. By 1890 they were selling more than three million rail tickets annually.
