The first Travel Agency of the world was established by Thomas Cook in 1845 in England. The use of the term travel trade dates back from the early years of the 19th century, but this should not obscure the fact that what we today describe as travel trade (travel agency and tour operation business) was taking place much earlier in history. Throughout the history, there was travel middleman who helped the merchants traveling for trade and other who traveled for religious purposes. In 1841 a fortunate day comes in the history of travel trade when Thomas Cook, as secretary of South Midland Temperance Association, organized a trip by a train for 570 members for his association to the distance of 22 miles. He bought railway tickets in bulk to sell them to people.
