TUI cancels all beach holidays and cruises for foreseeable



The UK’s biggest travel firm has suspended all beach holidays for the next five weeks.   TUI has cancelled all trips up to and including May 14 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.  The firm have also axed all Marella Cruises until at least June.  A spokeswoman said: “Our travel promise still stands, as it’s important for us to give you the holidays you deserve.  “This means you can amend all holidays up to June 30 for free, even if you’re due to travel between April 17 and May 14.”  Amendments to holiday bookings can be made via the firm’s website.  The spokeswoman added: “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, so for the time being we will keep a close eye on our programme and continue to amend and adapt timings in line with the latest global travel advice.”  The firm does not say that consumers would be entitled to a refund.  Under EU law travel companies must offer to refund customers within 14 days if their package holiday is cancelled.  However, industry bosses have warned that many firms will not be able to survive if they are forced to payout immediately.  Trade association Abta has called for the UK Government to follow measures taken in other European countries to allow holiday companies to issue credit notes instead of cash refunds due to the deluge of claims caused by the coronavirus pandemic.  The United Kingdom changed its travel guidance on April 4, advising against all non-essential global travel indefinitely.
