Up to 60 TUI travel agencies in Germany could close soon

Bad news for employees and Tui customers: The tourism group has started talks about the closure of numerous travel agencies. According to a report, it could hit 60 out of 450 branches in Germany alone.

Tui is negotiating with the works council to close numerous travel agencies in Germany. The company did not provide exact figures on the affected locations and employees on Thursday. “The talks are now running,” said a spokesman in Hanover.

According to information from the tourism trade journal “fvw”, up to 60 of around 450 TUI offices in the Federal Republic of Germany, which could be closed by the end of September next year, are to be dealt with.

Because of the more frequent use of online bookings, many stationary travel agencies have been struggling for a long time, as have other providers. This was exacerbated by the collapse in demand at the beginning of the Corona crisis. However, Tui had previously announced that it would fundamentally reorganize its sales department.
