Tui says its decision to put its summer 2020 programme on sale five months early has been vindicated after taking in excess of 100,000 bookings more than a year in advance.
Brits locking in summer 2020 holidays earlier than ever – Tui
The launch last November was the earliest Tui has put its summer holiday programme on sale. The operator says it will add a further 2,000 hotels bookable for summer 2020 later this month.
Tui said the move came in response to consumer behaviour, with more customers – particularly families – wanting to book earlier.
Its launch was complemented by a range of sales initiatives, including free kids holidays and low deposits, with a new direct debit scheme also now available.
More than 60% of Tuis summer 2020 bookings from Britons are for mid-haul destinations such as Cyprus and the Canaries, while Florida has proved popular for long-haul Disney breaks.
Some 15,000 passengers, meanwhile, have already booked to go to Tuis 5T platinum hotels. Greek islands including Rhodes, Kos and Zakynthos have also proved popular.
