This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This deal is for 10 Nights all inclusive leaving 23rd April with Tui staying at the Cortijo Blanco in San Pedro De Alcantera. Close to Puerto Banus and Marbella. Price is from Gatwick. Weather is usually 22c to 26c. If you are interested when you get to page 2 or 3 which shows the room type underneath it says choose option. I suggest you choose Superior room as they are nice and only £1.80 TOTAL more. Note you do have to pay for safe deposit boxes unless you opt for De Luxe room and it costs around £32 per week to hire one so be aware. This is a very good deal for this hotel.

Tui, the world’s largest tour operator, is freezing pre-payments and suspending contracts with some of its hotels as it struggles to cope with a severe downturn in global travel caused by coronavirus.

Hoteliers in Spain and Greece said that Tui was in talks with a number of operators to invoke “force majeure” clauses in contracts and temporarily stop payments.

“We are in close contact with our hotel partners worldwide, jointly reviewing options for capacity management, to mitigate the impact for both Tui and its partners,” the company said.

Tui also said it had frozen recruitment and was considering reducing staff hours.

The company’s older customer base and its exposure to the embattled cruise industry make it very vulnerable to the effects of measures taken to try to stop the spread of the disease, which is now present in 114 countries.

The world’s third largest cruise line, Princess Cruises, announced on Thursday that it would halt operations for two months. Princess operates the Diamond Princess ship, which had some of the early cases of coronavirus.

Shares in Tui have fallen 57 per cent in the past month and the cost of insuring its debt has jumped almost fourfold since mid-February.

One Greek hotelier who contracts around 15 per cent of his rooms to Tui said that forward bookings were down around 40 per cent and that as tour operators moved to freeze payments he would also be forced to cut payouts to suppliers.

The first quarter of the year is always difficult for tour operators: demand for holidays is low and they must make advance payment to hoteliers for summer bookings. Tui has also been affected by the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max aircraft — this cost the company €293m last year and the estimated earnings hit in 2020 is up to €400m.

In addition, there has been a surge in coronavirus cases in Spain this week. Spain is by far the largest market for UK overseas tourism with 16m travelling there last year, according to the Association of British Travel Agents.

Becky Lane, an analyst at Jeffries, said that Tui was “more stretched” than its peers and that a large amount of the €2.9bn cash on Tui’s balance sheet at the end of 2019 would be from customer deposits that might have to be refunded.

According to its latest trading update in February, Tui had net debt of just over €2bn.

Could just be a blip, I'm no expert in these matters - but I certainly wouldn't be making a fresh booking. How's your insurance? Decent cover?

Not as good as it should be, unless the foreign office issue a "do not travel"... Time will tell.
I must admit that we have put off booking any travel abroad this year until we know how things turn out. Too many uncertainties re destinations, travel, and holiday related companies. We have booked a holiday cottage in Scotland direct with the owner assuming we are still allowed / able to travel in June.
Colder than 2 weeks of quarantine
We have 3 weeks in Florida booked in July... Disney & Universal just announced they're closing until the end of the month, though I anticipate that might go on a little longer. Tense times - sorted our insurance properly this afternoon though, so hopefully our holiday is safe!
Their debt has risen slightly the past year but certainly on par with past levels. Their cash income and net worth (global stock fall not withstanding) had increased considerably though. Is be surprised if this would be an issue to break them (this isn't the same level as Flybe at all imo) considering their invoking insurance clauss etc. But really I know nothing

Thought insurance was only applicable if sorted before you made your booking?
2020 certainly wont be a good year for most companies. Baring sanitizer and toilet roll manufacturers!

Did you get an ATOL certificate when booking ? That's will cover your losses without any excess. I got all my money back when monarch folded a couple of years ago.

I had insurance already - just upgraded my cover. Calls are recorded, and they said I'd be covered, so just hoping for the best. Cautiously concerned still, but think it'll be alright.
