Holiday-makers affected will be offered a chance to rearrange up to 14 days before but it will undoubtedly ruin the best laid plans of many.

Changing your holiday

According to TUIs latest statement: “If we need to cancel holidays because of updated Government guidance, or after reviewing our holiday programme, we will contact customers and aim to give at least seven days advance notice.

“These customers can request a full cash refund, or to change to a later date or alternative holiday with a booking incentive.

“We know some customers may be unsure about travelling this summer, so to offer continued flexibility and reassurance, fee-free changes can be made up to 14 days before travel for customers due to depart up to and including 31 October.”
