Due to changes in customer behaviour and the growth of online bookings, Tui is looking to move 70 per cent of the 900 impacted roles in the United Kingdom into a new homeworking sales and service team.
According to TUI, the company intends to try and reposition about 70 percent of the travel workers affected by the closings into homeworking or service roles.
Impacted stores have been selected due to market data, consumer trends and prediction of retail travel.More news: Amazon closer to launching satellites, upping internet reach
In May, the TUI Group announced that it was to reduce overhead costs globally by 30 per cent, with approximately 8,000 roles impacted. About 350 stores will remain following the closures.
Tui said it will not be publishing a list of potential store closures but none of those which have reopened since coronavirus lockdown restrictions were eased are at risk.
According to the company, United Kingdom jobs will be protected by closing third party overseas customer service centres.

"It is therefore imperative that we make these hard cost decisions and do our best to look after our colleagues during such unprecedented uncertainty".
"Customer behaviours have already changed in recent years, with 70 per cent of all TUI UK bookings taking place online".
Derek Jones, UK managing director of travel firm Kuoni, told the BBC that he believes the next six months will be "really tricky for the travel industry".
