Hi All. I paid the deposit for our holiday with TUI with my debit card (I don't have a credit card) the balance is due by 01/07/2020 some £1500. I was wondering if it
might be safer to pay it with PayPal as TUI use PayPal. or would it mess things up in the case of claiming a refund???

    If it is a TUI package holiday you have financial protection via ATOL so it really makes no difference how you pay your balance.  TUI Airways flight only is however different.

    I would have a look for the latest information on the TUI website a week or so before your balance is due as they have up to now been allowing a delay to balance payments on some departure periods. Might be worth checking out to see if this applies to you.
