TUI has unveiled 135 new hotels as part of its portfolio which were previously offered by Thomas Cook before the travel firm’s collapse.
Out of the new hotels on offer, 56 will be exclusive to TUI customers.
The firm explained it chose to add the new properties to its portfolio “following customer demand”.
As part of the expansion, TUI will offer 30 new hotels in Turkey including the 4T Grand Cettia Hotel which was previously exclusive to Thomas Cook.
There will also be 16 new hotels in Greece, 22 new hotels in the Canary Islands, 13 new hotels in Mexico, as well as six new hotels in the Balearics including a new SplashWorld resort, The Marinda Garden Aparthotel.
The new hotels are already available to book on the TUI website for holidays in 2020.
It’s not the only area in which the travel giant is expanding. Earlier this year it revealed that it would be adding an additional two million seats on flights to a host of destinations including Turkey, Greece, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands and Mexico.
Mark Hall, Director of Product and Destination Experience TUI UK & Ireland said “At TUI we’re committed to offering outstanding holidays and to support the additional capacity growth.
“We are delighted to be introducing a wide range of hotels popular with Thomas Cook customers to make sure holiday makers still get to experience these great resorts.
“The customer is truly at the heart of everything we do at TUI and this additional growth in hotels demonstrates our continued commitment for people to discover their smile with us.”
Thomas Cook’s collapse earlier this year saw thousands of British holidaymakers’ plans thrown into chaos with flights and holidays from the firm cancelled.
It led to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) launching the biggest peacetime repatriation scheme as hundreds of thousands of Brits were brought home.
There were some silver linings such as cruise lines honouring Thomas Cook bookings , while ABTA cautioned Brits that holidays booked through Thomas Cook travel agents had not necessarily been cancelled following some confusion amongst holidaymakers.
