Tui cancels all beach holidays in June, cruises won’t resume until July 31

Tui, the UK’s largest travel company, has cancelled all  beach holidays up to the end of June.

Its river cruises have been cancelled up to and including November 25.

Its lakes and mountains holidays have been cancelled up to the end of September.

Marella Cruises, which is part of Tui, has cancelled all sailings up to an including July  30. All sailings on Marella Celebration have also been cancelled as the ship has been removed from the fleet, and sailings on Discovery 2 won’t resume until May 1 next year. Marella Discovery sailings in December 2020 and January 2021 have also been cancelled along with Marella Explorer 2 sailings between 5 May 2021 and 20 October 2021.All other holidays are continuing to operate as planned and will be continuously reviewed, said Tui.

Holidaymakers whose trips have been cancelled will receive a credit note with an additional 20% added as a rebooking incentive, said Tui. It claims the credit notes come with the same financial protection as holiday bookings, but this has not been confirmed by the Civil Aviation Authority (which protects package holidays).

Tui clients who would prefer a cash refund must wait to receive the credit note, which will be issued within four weeks of the original departure date (according to TuiI) then apply to exchange this for cash.



If your Tui holiday hasn’t been cancelled but you no longer want to travel, then it has a number of options, which can be found on its website.
