Advising on the lowest fare available

You may increase chances of getting a lower fare by being flexible in selecting your travel dates. Call Center representatives will be happy to look for lower cost alternative itineraries upon request if your travel plans are flexible.
Delays, cancellations and diversions
We know the importance of getting customers to their destination on time and work hard to do so. There may be occasions when weather, air traffic control, operational or unforeseen circumstances lead to flight delays, cancellations or diversions. In such instances, we will make available the most current, accurate information about your flight’s status involving known delays, cancellations and diversions.
Where possible, TUI fly will take reasonable steps to contact customers in advance at the phone number(s) provided in your reservation record. If you booked with a travel agency, and no contact number exists in our system, our reservations representatives will attempt to contact the agency. We encourage you to provide us with a mobile phone number and email address so that we can send email and text updates to you during your journey.
Flight display systems at the airport will also be updated, provided that TUI fly has control over such displays or can provide the information to the party who controls the display.
