TUI have announced the extended cancellation time frame for all beach holidays following updated travel advice from the Foreign Office which now advises against all non-essential worldwide travel indefinitely.
Currently TUI have followed the recommended advice and beach holidays up to and including May 14, 2020 are cancelled.
Marella Cruises will not be operational up to and including May 31, 2020 and the launch of TUI river cruises has now been postponed until November 26.
A spokesperson for TUI said: “We are constantly monitoring the situation and will start taking people on holiday again as soon as we are able to do so.
“At this point in time, nobody can accurately predict when that will be, so for the time being we will keep a close eye on our programme and continue to amend and adapt timings in line with the latest global travel advice.
“We will update our customers as soon as we can of any changes to their holidays. We, like other travel companies, want to travel again as soon as we possibly can and will do so in line with government advice.”
Tui have requested that customers who have booked their holiday through their local branch wait to be contacted by their agent who will assist them.
“We do understand this may be frustrating but we’d like to assure everyone that we will be in touch as soon as we can.”
