TUI cancels more vacations, including Egypt and Thailand

TUI canceled more vacations and flights until the end of next month, following the removal of the traffic light system.

More and more countries are now open to Britons wishing to go on holiday abroad, notably Turkey and Egypt.

However, the tour operator has extended some of its vacation cancellations.

Previously canceling the holidays in Egypt until October 9, this has since been extended until October 16 for Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada, and in Marsa Alam until October 31.

This despite the removal of Egypt from the UK’s red list, which means Britons can now return to the popular holiday destination without having to self-quarantine upon their return.

Holidays in Thailand with non-TUI flights have also been canceled until October 30, previously canceled until October 9.

Here is the full list of TUI vacation cancellations.

Affected vacationers can request a full cash refund or change their vacation to a different date or location with a booking incentive if their vacation is affected.

The UK government has since removed the traffic light system, leaving only the Red List countries behind.

This means that there are no green or orange list countries, only countries that are “open” and “closed” for travel.

Following the rule change, UK airports saw huge queues as holiday bookings tripled.

Testing rules have also changed, with Britons no longer needing a pre-arrival test when they return to the UK from October 4.

It is also hoped that the expensive PCR tests, required on the second day, will be ditched in favor of cheaper lateral flow tests in time for the mid-term break.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said Britons should be able to use £ 5 Covid tests in supermarkets when they return from holidays abroad, he said today.
