TUI says “Draw your holiday.”

If you travel with TUI to Rhodes or another of their Sensatori resorts this year then don’t be surprised if the rep turns around to you and invites you to draw the different experiences you have had on your holiday.



Why won’t TUI and easyJet pay up?

Mar 30th, 2018 | By

Yesterday’s Radio 4 midday consumer show, You & Yours, ran a story about travel and flight delays.  (You can hear the show by clicking here and signing in.) Nothing special about that you might think since there shouldn’t be many people left who haven’t heard of EU261 and the statutory rights to compensation airline passengers have if a plane is delayed or cancelled.

Thomson RIP

Oct 19th, 2017 | By

Yesterday TUI linked the old with the new. Thomson died and the smart customer holiday suggestor was born in its stores. The next step is to see how customers react to both.



The future for holidaymakers as seen by TUI and Thomas Cook

Oct 2nd, 2017 | By

Last week both Thomas Cook and TUI reported. With the demise of Monarch the outlook for the remaining tour operators may have got a little bit rosier. For travellers and holidaymakers I suspect that it will get a little more expensive.
