TUI has cancelled more holidays until August scuppering plans for more Britons hoping to jet abroad this summer.

It comes as a surprise for many holiday hopefuls amid new travel rules being introduced next week.

From July 19, double-jabbed Britons will be able to return from amber list countries without having to quarantine upon their return provided they have a negative PCR test.

The government is also set to review its international travel rules to red, amber and green list destinations on Thursday.

Despite this, TUI has pulled the plug on several flights and holidays until July 31 at the earliest.

The latest cancellations include:

  • Aruba

  • Bulgaria

  • Cape Verde

  • Costa Rica

  • Croatia (Except Kvarner Bay)

  • Dominican Republic

  • Egypt

  • Florida

  • Greece – Halkidiki, Samos and Thassos

  • India

  • Indonesia

  • Italy

  • Mainland Spain (Except Malaga and Alicante)

  • Maldives

  • Mauritius

  • Morocco - Agadir

  • Mexico - Puerto Vallarta and Cancun

  • Sri Lanka

  • Tanzania

  • Thailand

  • Tunisia

  • Turkey

  • UAE

  • USA (except Florida)

Many of the destinations are on the red list such as Turkey, the Maldives and the UAE.

Yet many popular British holiday hotspots - including Spain, Italy and Greece - are hoping to welcome more tourists from next week.

A TUI spokesperson said: “We want to offer our customers flexibility and choice this summer, so where borders are open and FCDO advice allows travel, we will operate to those destinations as planned.

“We are continually reviewing our holiday programme and cancellations in line with the Government updates every three weeks, with the next update expected on the 15th July.”

The tour operator also confirmed it would be cancelling a number of trips to Greece and Spain islands throughout July.

This includes:

  • July 19: Alicante Spain

  • July 20: Malaga Spain

  • July 21: Cyprus, Kefalonia Greece, Jamaica

  • July 22: Skiathos Greece, Marrakesh Morocco

  • July 23: Fuerteventura Canary Islands

  • July 24: Preveza Greece

  • July 26 Santorini Greece, Chania Crete

  • July 28 La Palma Canary Islands

Those who have had their holiday cancelled can get a full refund or move their trip to a later date.
