TUI said in the latest statement on their website: “Following the UK Government announcement, we are aware of changes to the travel testing requirements.

“All travelers returning to the UK will now have to take a second day of PCR testing and self-isolate until they receive a negative test result.

“This change will go into effect at 04:00 a.m. Tuesday, November 30, 2021.”

New measures including PCR testing on the second day for Covid-19 for travelers who have already arrived in the UK and are required to self-isolate until a negative result is received.

Some companies have already started raising prices – now starts around £40, goes up to over £150.

TUI also confirmed that passengers can change their travel plans for free until next month, but no refunds or credits will be issued.

They said: “Any customer who doesn’t want to travel and is planning to travel to and including December 19 can modify their stay free of charge.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refund credit notes to our customers.”

They have yet to confirm if any flights have been cancelled.
