From exotic adventures to hidden gems in Europe, we’re taking you to more destinations than ever from summer 2021. Our escorted tours take you beyond the beach, and make it easy for you to really get to know your destination. We’re talking local, English-speaking guides and authentic experiences that you’ll never forget. Want to know where you could go? Check out our round-up of the best tours in Asia and Europe, and discover our best trips of a lifetime.
When you book early, you’ve got the longest possible time to pay for your holiday. The full balance is due 12 weeks before you leave, so if you wait until the last minute, you pay the whole lot upfront. But book when those holidays first go on sale and you’ve got months and months to pay it off. You can either opt to pay a low deposit of £50pp – you’ll have 12 weeks to save for your second deposit – or choose to make the most of our Direct Debit scheme.
When it comes to Direct Debit, the system’s easy. You can set it up online – no paperwork needed – and then make your monthly payments to cover the cost of your holiday. There’ll be a minimum of three instalments, and you’ll make the final payment 98 days before you’re due to fly.
Need a new summer wardrobe for your next trip? You’ll have plenty of time to plan for that, too. No last-minute bikini purchases, you’ll be able to pick out bargains at your leisure. If you’re heading to fashionable Italy, you definitely want that extra time to plan your outfits. And maybe save up for some spectacular dinners while you’re out there.
Everyone loves having something to look forward to, right? When you book in advance, you’ve got plenty of time to build the anticipation, get excited, and make all your friends jealous. Download the TUI App and you’ll have a handy countdown timer ticking away, plus a whole lot of info about your holiday, your hotel, and any extras you fancy.
You can pre-book kids’ clubs and excursions, too, just to give yourself even more to get excited about. Or, if you’re heading somewhere like Egypt, why not start planning some diving? The Red Sea’s one of the best locations in the world for underwater sights. Spend some time learning about the types of fish and coral you can expect, and you’ll seem like a complete pro once you arrive.
When you’re travelling as a family, those costs can start to add up. Luckily, our free kids’ places take the pressure off. We offer thousands of free places across our hotels, but remember, they can go quickly. If you want your pick of dates, destinations and hotels with free kids’ places, booking early is the only way to go.
Each free kids’ place includes standard flights and a free stay in the selected hotel room with two full-paying adults. And they get all the same facilities and board basis that would usually be included for a paid spot. We’ve got free places on tonnes of our most popular holidays including traditional Turkey, where you’ve got everything from beaches to ancient culture to explore.
If you’re the first in line, you get first pick – it’s as simple as that. When you snap up your holiday early, you’ll have the widest choice of hotels, room types, flights and, well, everything.
Want to upgrade your seats on the plane? Select whichever seats you like. Want a family room, suite, or swim-up room? You’ll have the pick of the place. Want to fly from your local airport? Seats might be limited, but that won’t be a problem for you.
Take somewhere like Croatia. It’s getting increasingly popular and finds its way onto most ‘must-see’ lists – being the star location for Game of Thrones probably has something to do with that. Booking early is the only way to be sure you’ll get exactly what you want before someone else snags it first.
Standout views and a romantic rooftop bar set this hotel apart from the crowd. It’s no wonder it’s a TripAdvisor award winner.
This adults-only hotel flaunts a large pool, a gourmet restaurant and sea views that are made for Instagram.
This by-the-beach hotel lines up some of the best family-friendly facilities in the business.
