TUI has updated their full list of cancelled holidays and flights after the new Covid travel rules came into place yesterday.
Since Monday, Brits no longer need a pre-arrival Covid test to return to the UK.
The traffic light scheme has also been scrapped, ridding of the green and amber list and instead having just a go / no-go list.
TUI has since updated their holiday cancellations, all the way up to October 31 – here is the full list:
Up to and including 16th October:
- Egypt (Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh)
Up to and including 21st October:
- Cape Verde
- Dominican Republic
- Sri Lanka
- UAE (Abu Dhabi)
Up to and including 31st October:
- Austria, Italy and Slovenia (TUI Lakes and Mountains)
- Bulgaria (Varna and Bourgas)
- Costa Rica
- Egypt (Marsa Alam)
- Italy (Calabria, Sardinia and Sicily)
- Mainland Spain (Almeria and Girona)
- Trinidad & Tobago
Holidaymakers who are affected can request a full cash refund, or change their holiday to a different date or location with a booking incentive if their holiday is affected.
It is expected the government will slash the number of countries on the red list over the coming weeks.
Turkey, Egypt, the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Oman, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Kenya were already struck off the red list last month.
But more than 50 countries remain on the list – including Thailand, Costa Rica and the Philippines.
The day two PCR test requirement will also be swapped for a simpler lateral flow test later this month.
It is hoped this will be enforced in time for the October half-term, but the government is yet to confirm a date.
Here are some of the cheapest places to buy a PCR test for your holiday, as the free NHS tests are not allowed.
