Travel operator Thomson Holidays (TUI) has launched a child-free holiday package aimed at couples.

The new package promises couples a holiday without children and will complement their existing Thomson Gold and Thomson Families resorts.

The new holiday package has been created in response to the findings of a recent customer survey which found that 79% of people have had their holiday affected by other people’s children.

The survey also found that out of the 1,300 adults questioned in the survey, 40% said that their own children affected the enjoyment of their holiday.

These results prompted Thomson to respond to their customers’ views to create a child-free holiday option for its customers and to differentiate from its competitors by being the first mainstream travel operator to offer child-free holiday resorts worldwide.

“The launch of Thomson Couples is part of our ongoing commitment to designing different holiday experiences for different people,” said Luke Gaskins, Head of Product Developments at Thomson Holidays.

“Family holidays remain incredibly important to Thomson.

However, we cannot ignore the fact that there has been growing customer demand for adult-only resorts that provide parents with the chance to relax and rejuvenate.”

“Just as our family resorts are focused on keeping children entertained, Couples is completely geared to adult relaxation and together time.

“At a Couples hotel, peace and quiet both come as standard. Early sales show that we are on to a winner.”

The Thomson Couples packages are part of Thomson’s Premier Collection. Consumer benefits as part of the dedicated range include increased luggage allowance, priority transfers, day-before check-in and dedicated holiday advisers when overseas.
