Average daily bookings last month were up 70 percent compared to December, TUI said. The business, which is located in Germany, needs only small down payments on some of its packed holidays in the summer of 2021 and provides free modifications up to 21 days before departure on trips booked before the 9th of February. But according to CEO Fritz Joussen, it does not plan to get all of its trips discounted. Joussen said on an income call that compared to summer 2019, the average price of bookings grew 20 percent, powered by a higher number of bundled flights and hotel deals and demand for more luxurious holidays after a year in which many people stayed home.
