Update: In an earlier version of the story, the fall in Cox & Kings’ stock was not adjusted as per the company’s stock split in 2011. This has been corrected. We regret the error.
Having survived 260 years, Cox & Kings is the world’s oldest travel company. It pre-dates the formation of the United States of America, has survived two world wars, and almost all the global economic meltdowns in the history of modern civilisation. It has even migrated continents, moving from its birthplace of England to its current home in India.
