The sun will be popular this winter! When asked what is the favorite destination of Belgians for the coming months, Sarah Saucin, spokesperson for TUI has no hesitation: “The Canary Islands! “. If there are scheduled departures every day, some dates are already full. Even for the beginning of January, outside school holidays. In short, if you have specific requests and schedules to respect, it’s time to book. The Canary Islands are followed by countries, served by long-haul routes, where the sun shines like the Dominican Republic. Note also that it will be possible, via TUI, to go to Egypt (flight and hotel package) during these Christmas holidays.

Discounts, free

But there is also a passion for skiing. “We had a very good All Saints week for vacation departures and so we remain optimistic for Christmas. Even if the Belgian is still waiting until the last moment for reservations and the carnival and Easter holidays are preferred for skiing, ”continues the spokesperson.

In the top 3 ski destinations: France, Austria and Switzerland. But we will have to see what measures will be in force against the pandemic. Austria is therefore taking severe measures for the unvaccinated.

In the meantime, TUI is already offering its last-minutes for skiing at Christmas. “We currently have quite a few reductions: 38% reduction for France, 33% for Austria, 35% for Germany, 42% for Switzerland or even 28% for Italy. If they exist, it is because both tour operators and hoteliers hope to fill their establishment ”, specifies the spokesperson.


TUI is not the only one to offer discounts for these holidays which are already arriving in a little over a month. “There are many reasons to book your 100% secure ski holiday in the first few minutes: you benefit from the best offers and all the availability in the popular resorts. With our best price guarantee, you won’t find a cheaper price anywhere else. Find your happiness in one of the most beautiful ski resorts by choosing an apartment, a chalet or a hotel. With Sunweb, you have the choice. You can book your all-inclusive stay: ski pass included and ski equipment offered; or create your stay à la carte by withdrawing ski passes from non-skiers, by adding options: packed lunches, ski lessons, insurance… ”can we read in their offers.

An example ? 989 euros for a departure on December 19 for one week per person with half-board in Morzine, in a 3-star hotel. Discounted prices? The spokesperson for TUI does not use the expression, “but we can say that we are doing our utmost to boost skiing this Christmas vacation”.
