TUI, which resumes operations today, has announced it will cover the costs for medical tests, extended hotel stays and flights home for British holidaymakers if they catch Covid-19 while on a package holiday.
The ‘Covid-19 Cover’ will be offered to every TUI customer until the end of the year.
The cover will include the cost of repatriation, if medically required by the holidaymaker, and if they must self-isolate TUI will cover the cost of an extended stay and the price of a new return flight home if needed.
This comes as TUI, the UK’s largest holiday firm, announces it will reboot holidays to seven new destinations from July 25: Menorca, Malaga, Alicante, Reus, Zakynthos, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria have been added to their roster.
Today, TUI has kickstarted holidays to the Balearics and the Canaries, departing from Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester.
