TUI cancels more holidays until August including to Spain, Greece and Italy

TUI has cancelled more holidays until August, despite the new travel rules being enforced next week.

The government confirmed last week that Brits who are fully vaccinated will be able to return from amber list destinations without having to quarantine back in the UK.

Despite the new rules being in place from July 19, the tour operator has cancelled a number of holidays and flights until July 31 at the earliest.

The full list of destinations affected by the TUI cancellations are:

  • Aruba
  • Bulgaria
  • Cape Verde
  • Costa Rica
  • Croatia (Except Kvarner Bay)
  • Dominican Republic
  • Egypt
  • Florida
  • Greece – Halkidiki, Samos and Thassos
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Italy
  • Mainland Spain (Except Malaga and Alicante)
  • Maldives
  • Mauritius
  • Morocco – Agadir
  • Mexico – Puerto Vallarta and Cancun
  • Sri Lanka
  • Tanzania
  • Thailand
  • Tunisia
  • Turkey
  • UAE
  • USA (except Florida)

While many of them are on the red list meaning travel is banned there – including Turkey, the Maldives and the UAE – lots of the destinations such as Spain, Italy and Greece are hoping to welcome more British tourists next week.

TUI has also cancelled a number of holidays to the Spanish and Greek islands throughout July.

The tour operator 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 the 15th July."

Families who have their holidays cancelled can get a full refund, or change to a later date with a booking incentive.
