TUI have confirmed they are cancelling thousands more travel bookings due to Coronavirus travel restrictions. They had already cancelled bookings up to the end of June however they have now extended their suspended operations to and including the 11th July. This annoucnement follows a similar decision made by Jet2 to suspend travel until July 15th.
As before, all customers will be offered either a refund or credit note. Those who accept a credit note will also receive a further 20% discount for rebooking their next TUI holiday.
A TUI spokesperson said today:
“TUI UK and Ireland today confirms that due to the ongoing travel restrictions all beach holidays up to and including 10th July will be cancelled. With so much uncertainty around when travel will be able to recommence, customers due to travel before the end of August have the opportunity to amend their holiday for free, so they don’t have to pay until closer to their new departure date. We are constantly monitoring the situation and will start taking people on holiday again as soon as we are able to do so.”
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice to avoid all but essential international travel remains in place. Its unlikely any tour operators will recommence travel operations until this advice has been lifted. Additionally the requirement to quarantine for 14 days on return to the UK is posing an additional obstacle to many travellers.
