It has recently been announced by TUI Travel Plc, owners of Thomson Holidays and First Choice, that their holidaymakers will pay more next year as the company passes on rising costs.
As per TUI Travel’s latest trading report, average selling prices for summer 2012 holidays are currently up 10% because of the rising costs of fuel and accommodation.
With many UK tour operators reducing their overall capacity due to the general economic climate, as well as the political unrest in North Africa and beyond, trading is proving to be even more of a challenge.
