TUI Travel is a massive global organisation with multiple departments, as well as branches and partners around the world. Owing to the ad hoc nature of travel and holidays, the volume of complaints they receive are significantly larger than companies of similar size in other industries. Customers will have multiple contacts at the airport, shuttles, hotels, telephones, websites, etc.


You need to keep this in mind when calling the customer services of Thomson/ TUI Travel. Beyond the thousands of customers they are dealing with daily, the service reps are also required to deal with internal customers and airline, airport and hotel employees. The coordination and follow-up required might take a while, so you will rarely get immediate answers to your questions or problems.


It would serve absolutely no purpose to show your anger or verbally abuse the one person who could help you. Instead, treat them courteously and they will always reciprocate. In addition, please prepare in advance all relevant details pertaining to your complaint. Otherwise, you might forget some critical detail which might slow down the resolution process.


Aside from that, if you can help it, do try to call during off-peak hours – it would minimise your waiting/ on-hold time.

Thomson Holidays, or as it is now known, TUI Travel plc (and sometimes, First Choice) is an England-based global travel group. TUI Travel was born out of the merger of Thomson Holidays, an iconic British travel agency, and Preussag AG, a German conglomerate which at the time had interests in mining, transportation and power generation.


TUI Travel is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TUI Group, which operates in multiple tourism-related sectors including but not limited to cruise lines, air travel and hotels and resorts. TUI Group is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a part of the FTSE 100 Index. The company has a market valuation of almost $8 billion, which makes it the largest travel group in the United Kingdom. TUI Group is also listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.


TUI Travel currently employs over 12,500 employees which manages over six million holiday makers across 80 global destinations annually. The company also owns over 60 aeroplanes, 6 cruise ships and 4,000 properties.


Globally, TUI Group attends to over 20 million customers annually across 180 global destinations. The group also owns or co-owns over 300 hotels, four airline companies, 150 aeroplanes and 16 cruise vessels.


With over 600 travel agencies (and growing) operating in the UK, augmented by its affordable holiday and cruise packages, TUI Travel is poised to continue its dominance of the domestic holiday market for years to come.
