Tui's 'misleading' summer holiday advert banned

BBC News

A Tui TV ad offering a "perfect summer holiday" which could only be taken in September or October has been banned. A travel period between September 1 and October 31 was "unlikely to align" with consumers' understanding of the term summer holiday, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) concluded. Following a complaint to the ASA, Tui argued its summer holiday season ran from April to October. In response to the ruling, the company said the ad had been altered. The television ad for Tui holidays in June featured a voiceover stating: "It's not too late to discover Turkey with Tui from £279 per person this summer...perfect summer holidays that put you in the middle", while on-screen text specified that the price applied to departures between 1 September and 31 October.
