Tui has cancelled holidays nine countries until 27 June which are not on the government’s green travel list due to the “ongoing uncertainty” over travel.
The UK’s largest tour operator said the countries affected are Mexico, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Turkey, Egypt, Cape Verde, Morocco, Tunisia and Bulgaria – of which Turkey and Cape Verde are on the red list.
In a statement Tui 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 constantly reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the Government updates every three weeks, with the next update due in early June.
“Due to ongoing uncertainty, we have unfortunately had to cancel all holidays to the following Red and Amber destinations up to and including June 27: Mexico, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Turkey, Egypt, Cape Verde, Morocco, Tunisia and Bulgaria.
“All customers impacted by these cancellations will be contacted directly and will be able to request a full cash refund, or to change to a later date or alternative holiday and receive a booking incentive.
“If we need to cancel any future holidays because of updated government guidance, we will be in touch with you directly and will aim to give you at least seven days’ notice.
“We would like to thank our customers for their understanding at this time.”
