“This is why we’ve developed a new system to help patrons with cash refund requests and have updated our amendment programmes.
“We recognise the situation around travel this summer remains unclear and there’s yet a lot of uncertainty around when we will all be able to travel again, and some purchasers may not wish to pay a final balance with so many unknowns.
“We are therefore allowing TUI purchasers with holidays before the end of August the opportunity to amend their respite for free so they don’t have to pay until closer to their new departure rendezvous.
“Customers with a cancelled holiday will now be able to amend their feast online and take advantage of the 20 percent booking incentive, or they can be preserved their refund credit and booking incentive for a later date when they remember when and where they would like to travel.

“We are also constantly growing our virtual homeworking team whilst lay aways remain closed, so retail customers can speak with advisors relative to current and future bookings.
