Kuoni is set to swap the Indian Ocean for the English Channel this summer with the launch of its inaugural UK and Ireland collection.
The luxury long-haul operator has teamed up with UK and Ireland specialist McKinlay Kidd for its first foray into the domestic market.
With long-haul holidays and European breaks this summer likely to be impacted by a combination of Covid-19 travel restrictions and lower demand, Kuoni has become the first major UK travel firm to announce a domestic programme.
The new collection, which went live on the Kuoni website on Friday (29 May), features a range of tailor-made holiday options throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland, as well as the UK’s islands.
"Swapping island hopping in the Indian Ocean for UK islands and coastal escapes is something the company believes will appeal to anyone who may be disappointed they won’t be able to enjoy their much-needed overseas holiday this year as uncertainty around travel plans continues," said Kuoni.
