As the travel industry continues to react to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak, the U.K.’s largest travel group TUI has announced that many holidays to specific destinations have been cancelled until 11 July.

Amidst the “ongoing uncertainty” over travel and restrictions for Brits on entering a destination as well as returning home, TUI has announced that holidays to some destinations will not go ahead.

Finally, all holidays to Bulgaria, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Mexico, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey have been cancelled up to and including 11 July. Additionally, the company has cancelled all holidays that include non-TUI flights to Indonesia, Maldives, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand and UAE up to and including 11 July.

“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,” the company said in a statement. “We are constantly reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the government updates every three weeks, with the next update expected on 24 June.”

In the announcement, TUI said that customers who have travel booked up to 31 October 2021 are eligible to amend their holiday for free.

The group said that if your trip is cancelled by the new restrictions, it will contact you to discuss your options.

Under European law, if your trip was cancelled, you will be eligible for a cash refund if you prefer that rather than accepting a voucher or moving your trip to a later date.

The government is set to review its green list next on 24 June. Currently, there are only 11 countries and territories on the green list, while the majority of the world’s countries — 167 in total — are on the amber list.
