Superbreak has announced that is it entering into a new commercial deal with TUI UK, supplying airport and cruise port hotel stopovers for the Germany-based company.
The agreement covers Touristik Union International’s (TUI) agency network, which includes Thomson and First Choice, as well as other non-retail distribution channels. Previously, Superbreak supplied only airport hotels in London and throughout the UK for First Choice.
Superbreak offers 160 hotels across 35 UK air and cruise ports, with the majority providing both hotel-only and inclusive hotel plus parking offers. Airport hotels in Manchester, as well as other properties across the UK will be included in the new deal.
Superbreak sales director, Ian Mounser said: “As well as helping TUI to grow their UK airport hotel sales, we are confident it will help them grow their core UK hotel short break sales also.
“In addition, it reinforces our position as the leading supplier for UK airport hotel bookings from the retail travel high street.”
TUI was an industrial and transportation company until 2001, after which the company reinvented itself as a tourism, shipping and logistics company. Today it is one of the largest tourist firms with interests across Europe, owning travel agencies, hotels and TUI AG Airlines, the largest holiday fleet in Europe. Its common brand TUI fly encompasses a total of 7 airlines. In 2007, the TUI AG tourism division merged with First Choice Holidays PLC to form TUI Travel PLC.
TUI UK and Ireland distribution director Nick Longman said: “We are very pleased to have further cemented our relationship with Superbreak through this new agreement. They have been a great partner for both Thomson and First Choice over the years and we are confident we can build on this past success.”
