TUI is likely to start flying to Cape Verde again soon.

We’re keeping a close eye on government guidelines and expect to be able to start flying to Cape Verde again in the coming weeks. Holidays during the COVID-19 pandemic will be slightly different to what you’re used to. But, we’re doing everything we can to make sure that you have a brilliant TUI holiday. We understand how important it is to know what to expect while you’re away. That’s why we’ve put together this page to fill you in on what you can expect in Cape Verde, once we start flying there again.

COVID Cover

As part of our TUI Holiday Promise, all bookings in 2020 have COVID Cover included. This means you can amend your holiday for free if you contract COVID-19 before you travel. It’s also got a Holiday Guarantee insurance policy built in. This means that if you contract COVID-19 while you’re away, you’re covered for overseas medical assistance, testing costs and a flight home for treatment if required. It’s designed for use alongside your usual travel insurance, and is subject to T&Cs.

Your flight and hotel experience

We’ve put a range of new measures in place on our TUI flights, in line with all the latest government and holiday industry expert advice. You’ll need to check in online, wear a mask throughout the flight and also at some airports. As for our hotels, we’re making sure they’ve got the highest possible hygiene standards in place before re-opening. You can find out more about your flight, transfer and hotel experience here. And, check out our frequently asked questions, which include information on things like hotel restaurants, pools and entertainment.
