DO you like to be organised and plan well ahead for your holidays? Well, if you, do TUI Holidays, the UK’s largest tour operator, has answered your prayers!
The travel giant yesterday (Thursday) put its summer deals on offer for the year after next meaning you can book dates as far away as October 2020.
TUI said it was in response to customer demand as many holidaymakers “want to book as early as possible”.
The travel firm said securing free child places, getting the best choice of hotels and spreading the cost are among the reasons why customers like to book early.
Previously the company’s summer 2020 holidays would not have gone on sale until April.
The firm’s UK and Ireland commercial director Richard Sofer said: “We have seen competitors move their dates forward over the last couple of years and we wanted to be bold by launching significantly earlier.
“In previous years we’ve aligned with the traditional brochure launches in April and July, however in an ever digital-focused landscape it made sense to offer more flexibility and choice much earlier.”
As part of their new marketing campain TUI promise to “cross the ‘T’s, dot the ‘I’s and put ‘U’ in the middle.”
