        Your personal TUI travel credit is now redeemable for you

        Information about the travel credit

        Dear customers,

        On 3 June 2020, the German Federal Government decided to lift the worldwide travel warning on 15 June 2020 for the member states of the European Union and for Schengen-associated states.

        This means a clear start for summer holidays in Europe!

        Not all destinations and holiday countries start at the same time. For the long-haul route, for North Africa, Cape Verde and Turkey the general travel warning has been extended until 31.08.2020 for the time being.  

        In view of the statement by the Federal Foreign Office that the travel warning for individual countries may be lifted prematurely, we ask for a little patience. We will actively contact you in good time should we have to cancel your trip.

        For all booked trips until 31 August 2020 you have the possibility to rebook your trip free of charge up to 14 days before the start of the trip.

        TUI TRAVEL CREDIT - THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

        • What is the TUI travel credit?

          We introduced the TUI travel credit temporarily and exclusively for tours cancelled due to the Corona crisis. Your personal TUI travel credit will be applied like a means of payment to your next booked TUI trip. The TUI Travel Credit consists of the payment(s) already made to TUI for your cancelled trip(s) with arrival in the period from 14 March to 31 August 2020 inclusive.

        • Where can I find my customer and transaction number?

          You will find your customer number in your letter for the TUI Travel Credit, which you received by e-mail or by post. You will find your transaction number of the cancelled trip on your TUI confirmation/invoice in the top right-hand corner under "transaction".

        • Why should I opt for the TUI travel credit?

          By opting for TUI Travel Credit, you are not only helping us, but also our partners - whether your personal contacts at the travel agency, the tour guides in the holiday destinations, the hoteliers or restaurateurs and their families on the world's most beautiful beaches.

          It is also worth it for you! As a thank you, you will receive your personal extra credit of up to 150 euros per booking.

        • Is my TUI Travel Credit guaranteed?

          This is what the German Federal Government has in mind. In the decision of the Corona Cabinet of the German Federal Government of 02 April 2020, one of the conditions for the voucher redemption is that the credit balance must be covered against insolvency, if necessary also with state reinsurance, see also: Information of the Federal Government on voucher redemption (information in German). This request has been addressed accordingly to the EU Commission for resolution or release. We expect the EU Commission to respond shortly.

          It is also worth it for you! As a thank you, you will receive your personal extra credit of up to 150 euros per booking.

        • How do I get a TUI Travel Credit?

          The regulation applies to customers who have made their payment directly to the tour operator TUI and have a cancelled trip with arrival in the period 14 March to 31 August 2020 inclusive. If you have paid the trip directly to your travel agent, please contact your local representative.

        • How will I be informed about my TUI Travel Credit?

          You will be informed of your personal TUI travel credit by e-mail or by post. Customers with arrivals between 14 March and 30 April 2020 inclusive were informed by e-mail on 14 April 2020.

          Customers with arrivals in the period 1 May to 15 May 2020 inclusive were informed by e-mail on 30 April 2020. 

          Customers with arrivals in the period from 16 May to 14 June 2020 inclusive were informed by e-mail on 13 May 2020.

          Customers with arrivals in the period 15 June to 31 July 2020 inclusive were informed by e-mail or by post on 10 June 2020.

        • Do I need to take action to activate the travel credit?

          No, your personal TUI travel credit is automatically available for bookings.

        • How can I cancel my trip and receive a TUI travel credit?

          The option of exchanging trips for travel credit exists for trips with departure dates between 01 July 2020 and 31 July 2020 that go to the following destinations: Egypt, Greece, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey.

          You can cancel your trip free of charge and convert it into a credit on the following page (website only available in German): tui.com/reiseguthaben/storno

        • Until when can I redeem my personal TUI Travel Credit?

          Your personal TUI travel credit is available for bookings until 31 December 2021 for your next TUI trip(s). The start of the trip can be after this date (e.g. in January or March 2022).

        • For which trips can I redeem my credit?

          You can redeem your credit for the programme of tour operator TUI Deutschland GmbH with the TUI MAGIC LIFE, TUI and airtours brands. The credit cannot be redeemed for TUI Cruises, TUI holiday homes, ltur and flights only.

        • How do I redeem the credit?

          To redeem your travel credit, the customer number noted on your letter is required. Please have this number ready for redemption at the next booking.

        • What can I do if the personal TUI Travel Credit in the TUI letter does not correspond to the payment I have made?

          Unfortunately, in a few cases there are deviations. The status of your TUI travel credit was determined a few days before your letter was sent, therefore deviations from the payments actually made are possible. You can view your current TUI travel credit balance online at www.tui.com/reiseguthaben (website only in German) at any time.

        • Can I use my TUI Travel Credit for several bookings?

          If your first booking does not use up 100% of your credit, you can of course use it for further trips. Important: The trips must be booked on the customer number from the letter you received.

        • Can I have my TUI Travel Credit from various trips cancelled due to corona be bundled together for a new booking?

          Yes, all individual TUI travel credits are assigned to your customer number and are charged accordingly for bookings made under this customer number. Several TUI travel credits can thus be credited for a single new booking.

        • Where can I book my new trip?

          To make a new holiday booking with your TUI travel credit, contact the travel agency where you booked the original or cancelled trip. If you booked your trip on www.magiclife.com, please also contact www.magiclife.com to make a new holiday booking.

        • Can I transfer my travel credit to another person?

          The credit is assigned to the personal customer number of the payer and is not transferable. Of course, the travel participants can vary with a new booking.

        • I have already booked other trips with TUI Deutschland. Can I also use my TUI Travel Credit for this?

          Yes, your TUI Travel Credit will also be offset against outstanding payments for existing bookings.

        • Can I get a refund of my payment?

          Yes, you can arrange for your TUI travel credit to be paid out at any time. To arrange payment, please contact the travel agency where you booked the original or cancelled trip. If you booked your trip on magiclife.com, you can arrange for your TUI travel credit to be paid out at www.tui.com/reiseguthaben (website only in german).

          If you have not redeemed your TUI travel credit by December 31, 2021, you will automatically receive a full refund of any payments you have made.

        • Can I rely on TUI as a customer?

          Yes, strategically and operationally we are a solid and healthy company. We were economically successful before the crisis and will be again after the crisis. Our business model is intact and we have over 21 million loyal customers. We have a team that is unmatched in our industry. We have great products. We have a proven business model.
