Tour operator TUI has cancelled more holidays due to restrictions on international travel.
Holidays until July 11 have been scrapped by TUI, the UK's largest tour operator cites "ongoing uncertainty" over travel. No major European holiday destinations are currently included on the UK's green travel list, which will be updated in a fortnight.
Affected customers will be contacted directly. They can request cash refunds, or change their dates or holiday and receive a booking incentive, reports Wales Online.
TUI stated: “If we need to cancel any future holidays because of updated government guidance, we will be in touch directly and aim to give customers at least seven days’ notice. We would like to thank our customers for their understanding at this time.”
The company added: “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 expected on June 24. All customers will be contacted as soon as possible if there is any change to their booking."
TUI has pledged to continue operating to destinations where travel is allowed by the UK Foreign Office. It stated: “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, including Portugal, Madeira and Porto Santo.
“The following amber destinations, where borders are open and FCDO advice allows travel, will continue to operate as scheduled: Antigua, Barbados, Corfu, Crete (Heraklion), Cuba (Varadero), Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Grenada, Lanzarote, Kos, Madeira, Porto Santo, Portugal, Rhodes, St Lucia and Tenerife."
