TUI has blamed ‘ongoing uncertainty around travel’ for cancelling holidays to over 20 destinations until 22 July.
Holidaymakers booked on packages to destinations including mainland Spain, La Palma, Cyprus, several Greek resorts, as well as the operator’s entire Lakes & Mountains programme, are being notified their holidays are not going ahead.
TUI has also cancelled holidays on third-party airlines to long-haul destinations, such as Canada and the US.
TUI said: “We want to offer our customers flexibility and choice this summer, so where borders are open and FCDO advice allows travel, we will operate to those destinations as planned.
“We are continually reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the Government updates every three weeks, with the next update expected on 15 July.
“All customers will be contacted as soon as possible if there is any change to their booking.”
Destinations served by TUI flights that have been cancelled up to and including 21 July are: Aruba, Bulgaria, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Italy, Jamaica, mainland Spain and La Palma, Mexico, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey.
Also cancelled are Greek destinations of Halkidiki, Kefalonia, Preveza, Samos, Santorini (pictured), Skiathos, Thassos, Crete (Chania), as well as TUI Lakes & Mountains destinations.
The list of cancelled holidays served by non-TUI flights is: Canada, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Tobago, UAE and USA, also effective up to and including 21 July.
TUI added: “All customers impacted by these cancellations will be contacted directly and will be able to request a full cash refund, or to change to a later date or alternative holiday and receive a booking incentive.
“If we need to cancel any future holidays because of updated Government guidance, or as a result of reviewing our holiday programmes, we will be in touch directly and aim to give customers at least seven days’ notice.
“We would like to thank our customers for their understanding at this time.”
