During these difficult and unprecedented times because of the coronavirus, it’s not just Tui holidays and First Choice Holidays that are being cancelled.

There are travel restrictions everywhere and some popular holiday destinations are on lockdown and a two-week quarantine may also greet you on arrival. The situation is changing constantly as scientists and governments react to the updates. If you were still to travel, and Tui or First Choice have cancelled your holiday, what can you do?

Tui Coronavirus Cancellations

Your Tui refund credit will automatically get emailed to you within four weeks of your departure date. (full details of the Tui coronavirus voucher one of the quick links above)
People who have not booked anything are also booking up for 2021. Plus there are some capacity reductions so expect availability and prices to change and not always for the best.
Tui Holidays Coronavirus Advice.
Tui Holidays have a special section on their website, coronavirus FAQS. On this page they have updated information on what dates holidays are being cancelled for. You will also see details of Tui River Cruises, and the Marella Cruises cancellation dates. Outwith these dates, holidays are still continuing to operate. As you can imagine these dates are constantly being reviewed. So if you are still due to travel, keep checking this page for updates.
How Do you Book a Tui Replacement Holiday
If you go with the Tui coronavirus voucher, it’s easy to look for a replacement holiday. Many people are booking for Summer 2021 just in case. They are also keeping their options open to grab a Tui late deal in this summer if that if possible to do. Tui and all major travel firms go by the British government for advice. They will not take you to a destination if the government do not deem it safe to visit. If you booked a specific hotel or apartment, then it is easy to look for 2021 holiday availability in the same accommodation.
Go to the main Tui Holidays page or First Choice main page and use the holiday search. Enter the departure airport or airports you wish to travel from. In the destination section enter the name of the accommodation you wish to stay in. Then the departure date, duration and the passenger details. Remember that any children travelling could be a year older. When entering the accommodation the Tui holiday search will show the name of the accommodation and you can select it. Sometimes you will be shown more than option if there are different board basis options available.
The advantage of searching for your holiday this way is that it will list the entire months availability for that accommodation. Plus, it highlights the cheapest price for that accommodation in green, making it easy to spot. There are also filters where you can change the airport (if you did not just selected one) Board basis filter lets you see the difference in price if there is different board basis option to choose from. The prices shown are all per person you will need to click on the price to get a family price if children are travelling. Also, the holiday duration lets you quickly see what the different options are for the different holiday durations. Once you find the dates you want, just click on that date and follow the normal Tui booking procedure. Don’t forget to use your discount code to get your 20% off.
If you are just looking for the cheapest deal on a specific date or range of dates, you could use the Tui Summer holiday deals page. This page shows the cheapest Tui 2021 holidays by price. You will need to use the filters to get the holidays to be more relevant to you. Typically, this will be the departure airport, duration and dates you can travel. After that you can also go for destination, board basis and accommodation rating. However, the more you use these, the fewer holidays will get to choose from. You might miss out on some cheaper Tui or First Choice holidays
Hopefully this terrible situation will be over sooner than later. Please stay safe and enjoy the benefits of looking forward to getting away for a much needed holiday.
