12 April, 2020

The UK’s biggest travel firm has paused and canceled all hotel stays and vacation packages until May 14. It has put Marella Cruises sailings on hold until June. A new TUI River Cruise product won’t start until November.

The Irish Government is currently advising against all non-essential travel overseas, including to Britain, indefinitely. This includes all cruise ship travel.

The UK changed its travel guidance on April 4th, advising against all non-essential global travel indefinitely. Previously Britons had been told to avoid global travel for 30 days from March 17th.

The UK changed its travel guidance on April 4th, advising against all non-essential global travel indefinitely. Previously Britons had been told to avoid global travel for 30 days from March 17th.

TUI said that beach holidays for UK and Irish customers travelling up to and including May 14th would no longer operate, while Marella cruise holidays would be cancelled until May 31st, and a river cruise unit would delay launching until November 26th.

“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,” said a TUI spokesman.

The refund should include your accommodation, or just the flight itself if you only booked plane tickets through TUI.

You can contact TUI on 0203 451 2695 but advise only those travelling in the next 48 hours to call due to high volume.

The tour operator announced last month that they were cutting staff working hours and pay between 30 and 50 per cent to avoid redundancies.

They explained that the new measures are to "ensure cash is preserved, costs are controlled, and the future of our business is protected".

Jet2 recently announced that all flights were cancelled until mid-June, while easyJet have grounded the majority of their fleet indefinitely.
