Tui Free Child Places Late Deals
Many of the Tui Family Life hotels offer free child places to help reduce the overall total cost of your holiday. Tui free child places are limited and you will generally find that the popular school holiday dates particularly in the summer will be the first to sell out as soon as the new holiday season goes on sale. Tui Holidays will sometimes add extra free child places during the busy booking periods such as in January and February.
Generally Tui offer a special low deposit offer making it even easier to reserve any holiday deal you fins especially one with a free child place. Many of the Family Life hotels also offer a second child discount as well which is a great deal especially as most hotels offer spacious, well equipped family rooms.

Booking a Tui Family Life Holiday
The best place to book is not surprisingly online on the official Tui Holidays web site. This way you will also automatically get any online discounts that are applicable to your booking or free child places included in the cost of the holiday. Many third party web sites will not have live access to some of these deals and especially of Tui are offering a discount coupon/code which could save you even more off the total cost. By booking direct you will also be able to add on any extras such as seat reservations or extra luggage allowance.
Tui Holidays Late Deals
Normally we advise holidaymakers to avoid the main school holiday dates to get the best Tui late deals however that doesn't help many families when these are the dates you are after. For families with younger children of a preschool age then you are able to follow the normal advice when looking for a Tui Family Life late deal. Avoid the busy school holiday dates and school half terms as well as New Year if possible. Also Easter and some of the holiday weekends if you are thinking of going for a shorter duration.
It is unlikely that all the Tui Blue for Families hotels will be sold out however if you are not prepared to be flexible with your dates, departure airport and destination perhaps you would be better off looking for a free child place and booking early. For anyone in the position that they can only book late minute then try and be flexible as possible as this could save you money depending on the time of year and when you are booking.
Late deal prices are unpredictable and a spell of bad summer weather in the UK generally drives prices up. It will come as no surprise that the prices will go up and down based on that old economic principle of supply and demand.
Tui Family Holidays All Inclusive
Tui family all inclusive holidays are a very popular option for many holidaymakers and also with families as well. The only thing to make Tui Family holidays better would be to make Tui Family Life all inclusive and you can at a number of the Family Life hotels.
This way you and your family can enjoy all the benefits of a Tui Family Life holiday with all your drinks and snacks included in the cost of the holiday plus some of the hotels also offer extras such as sports and activities which otherwise may have a charge to use. It is important that everyone makes sure they drink enough in a hot climate especially the children and if they or you feel thirsty they can get drinks whenever they want. An all inclusive holiday means that you will not have to worry about any high bills when you check out at the end of your holiday as long as you stick to the drinks on the all inclusive deal.
Generally the all inclusive deals include all locally produced alcoholic and soft drinks as well as tea and coffee and extra some snacks. Simply check the Family Life hotel description to see what the hotel includes for all inclusive guests and what if any conditions there are.
