The tour operator said it took the decision due to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development office’s (FCDO) advice against all but essential travel to a number of Greek islands due to the coronavirus (Covid-19).
According to the company’s policy, travel is offered only to quarantine-free destinations.
“This is a very unfortunate development. However, Greece remains a significant destination for TUI Group and our decision will be revised after September 22,” TUI Group spokesperson Evangelos Georgiou told GTP Headlines, adding that the company respects the local assessment of authorities regarding quarantine decisions.
All of TUI’s customers impacted from the cancellations will be notified and offered to amend or cancel and receive a full cash refund.
