You can go on holiday to Italy with TUI from July.

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 everything you need to know about your holiday to Italy, from face masks to social distancing.


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.
