Not just for families: 10 things you never knew about TUI

If you think TUI package holidays are all about kids and beaches, think again. The company offers a huge range of holiday options, from trips around Vietnam to five-star luxury hotels for adults only. Here’s a few things you probably didn’t know about TUI…

In partnership with TUI

1. You can go to the Arctic

Yes, the Arctic. Among the range of ‘Fjords, Iceland and Arctic cruises’ are trips that head up inside the Arctic circle, right to the very top of Norway. You can chase the Northern Lights, explore Tromso, the ‘Paris of the north’, and marvel at the midnight sun. Check out the Marella Arctic cruises.

2. You can indulge in a five-star luxury holiday

As well as affordable family holidays, TUI provides a range of fancy packages to five-star hotels as part of their TUI SENSATORI selection. They offer top-quality dining – each hotel has a minimum of three all-inclusive à la carte restaurants – and you can pick from a range of activities, including yoga classes, archery and spa days. Check out TUI SENSATORI.

3. They do holidays to Vietnam

Recently, TUI began offering package tours to the backpackers’ paradise of Vietnam – one of 70 destinations that the company covers. You can visit a range of hotels on the idyllic island of Phu Quoc, the majority of which is a national park, which is home to 23 species of orchid and rare mammals including lorises, the long-tailed macaque and the silver langur. The island is ringed with fantastic sandy beaches, and its clear waters are ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling. Check out TUI holidays to Vietnam.

4. Multi-stop: Discover more than just one destination

You might think a package holiday means staying cooped up in one hotel for the duration. But TUI offers multi-centre holidays where you choose which places you want to visit, so you can explore a whole country rather than staying stuck in a resort. Jump in a car and drive across Florida, or split your holiday between the city and the beach – TUI will take care of the accommodation and travel. And if you get stuck, TUI have a 24/7 HolidayLine, so you can call, text or email their Holiday Advisors around the clock, across the globe, seven days a week. Check out TUI multi-centre holidays.

5. Romantic Getaway? Party-Holiday? Pick a hotel just for adults

Package holidays don’t just mean hanging out with the kids at the pool. TUI SENSIMAR is a range of holidays that are just for adults – strictly no children allowed. The hotels are either slap bang in the centre of great bars and restaurants or nuzzled up next to stunning beaches, so you can opt to party or relax as you choose. And there are plenty of options for activities, from cooking classes to Nordic walking. Check out TUI SENSIMAR.

6. You can manage your holiday easily through their app

You can search for a TUI holiday through their smartphone app, and once you’ve booked, the app lets you download your mobile boarding passes and add extras like seat upgrades. You can also use the app to meet your rep, check your transfer times, check the weather at your destination and find the top attractions near your hotel. Check out the TUI app.

7. Find really cheap last-minute deals

If you want a quick holiday and you’re willing to be flexible, you can find some utterly amazing deals on the TUI last-minute holidays page. There are some massive discounts available, and all of your flights and accommodation are included – and sometimes your food as well – so you really can just book and go without having to worry.

8. You can book an airport lounge through their website

Rather than slumming it in the departure gate food court, you can use the TUI website to book a spot in an airport lounge and start off your holiday in style. Lounges at London Gatwick start from arounf £36*, and you can indulge in free drinks, snacks and Wi-Fi while waiting for your plane to depart. TUI flies from 22 regional UK airports, including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Exeter, Newcastle, Glasgow, Norwich and Belfast. Check out TUI airport lounge offers.

9. Enough beach already? TUI also offers mountain holidays

It’s not all beaches and bars – you can also enjoy some of the most stunning mountain scenery in Europe. The beautiful town of Kranjska Gora in Slovenia is a remarkable mountain getaway surrounded up the Slovenian Alps, and it has some of the best hiking routes around. Or you could stay in one of the many mountain hideaways in Austria, including the picturesque valley hideaway of Lech, once voted the most beautiful village in Europe. Check out TUI mountain holidays.

10. They have a really fancy airline

TUI’s airline has been voted the ‘World’s Best Leisure Airline’ for the last five years running. The planes themselves are modern and comfy: in fact, TUI have the youngest fleet in Europe, including 11 high-tech Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes. Not only that, TUI have partnered with Boeing and NASA to cut their airplane carbon emissions as part of their environmental focus.
