It's no time to relax says holiday group
16th May 2017
A major tourism business has today predicted tougher times ahead following a slowdown in bookings.
The Tui Group, which owns Gloucestershire-based Gullivers Sports Travel, as well as Thomson and First Choice, said bookings were flat year on year.
A rise in prices following a fall in the value of sterling had seen its revenues go up by eight per cent.
However, its second-quarter underlying losses went up from £107million to £131million.
Tui reported "subdued demand" for trips to Turkey and North Africa, which have been subject to terrorism and political upheaval, but it was offset by a rise in demand for trips to Spain, the Canary Islands, Cyprus, Greece and the Caribbean.
Tui chief executive Fritz Joussen told Sky News: "There's no doubt that in the UK times will be a little more tough in the future than they have been in the past."
