Thriving destinations benefit customers and local communities alike. Through excursions, their customers discover new places and contribute to the local economy. Since 2014, TUI Collection excursions have promoted unique, authentic and responsible activities. Each TUI Collection excursion is exclusive to TUI and meets specific criteria for sustainability, demonstrating that it benefits local people and minimises environmental impact. In 2019, customers went on 1,220,000 TUI Collection excursions – and 375 excursions were offered in 75 destinations.
An example of a Collection excursion is Coba Mayan Traditions in Mexico. Developed with the Mayan community, guests visit the historic Mayan site of Coba, a Mayan village, shop for local handmade products, and dine at a local restaurant, bringing benefits to 130 families.
