The major competitors of TUI

Still with the objective of understanding the growth possibilities of the TUI Group and therefore those of its share price on the stock markets, you should know and understand its major activity sector and the major players therein.  We therefore now offer you the opportunity to learn about the major competitors of TUI.

FRAM

Also known under the name of ‘Fer, Route, Air, Mer’, this is a French travel company that was created in 1949 and has become a group with diverse activities notably exercising them under the brand names FRAM Voyages and FRAM Agences. Until recently it held third position in this sector in Europe behind TUI and Thomas Cook.

Thomas Cook Group

  This particular travel group is British and was created in the middle of the 19th century in England. It did however declare bankruptcy on 13th September 2019.  At the time of its closure it boasted 2,600 travel agencies, 33 travel companies, 89 aircraft and was present in over 15 countries.

Karavel

This French company that notably operates under the brand name Promovacances is specialised in tourism and is particularly well known for its online travel agency.


The major partners of TUI

Let us first study the strategic allies of TUI with a review of two recent examples of partnerships that this group has implemented with other companies with the objective of meeting certain requirements or promoting the growth of the company.

MAIF

Firstly, in 2013, TUI implemented a strategic partnership with the insurance company MAIF. More precisely it was the subsidiary, TUI France, leader in the French tourism sector that became associated with the MAIF Group, a major player in the individual insurance sector, through a social partnership agreement relating to the recruitment of personnel concerning the voluntary departure plan of TUI France. This agreement concerned approximately a hundred employees enabling them to bypass the standard recruitment procedures and thereby demonstrating the social and responsible engagement commitments of the two companies.

Booking

More recently, in June 2020 to be more exact, the TUI Group signed a new strategic partnership agreement with the online hotel reservations giant Booking.com. The objective here of Booking was to become present in all aspects of travel with an integrated range of solutions and activities including lodging, tickets and transport. This is why after the launch of its online digital activities in 2019, and in 10 French towns and cities, Booking.com signed this strategic partnership with the travel company TUI. Through this partnership the clients of Booking were in fact granted direct access to over 70,000 tours and attractions worldwide through the TUI subsidiary, TUI Musement, with a progressive launch on the online platform of Booking over the following few months.

Positive factors for TUI shares
The factors in favour of a rise in the TUI share price:

The analysis of the TUI Group share price requires, first and foremost, a good knowledge of this company, but also of its main strengths and weaknesses. Indeed, to understand how this company can face its future threats and how it can take advantage of its future opportunities, you need to know what its strengths and weaknesses are. So here we take a look at them in detail.

Let's start our comparative analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of this stock by summarising the advantages that the TUI Group has in its market and that can help it to remain competitive with the competition:

  • First of all, the group has a fairly substantial personal fleet of aircraft in this market. Firstly, the group has a sizeable fleet of its own aircraft in this market. It should be remembered that TUI currently has a fleet of aircraft and charter aircraft which enable it to serve more than 150 destinations worldwide. The company can therefore meet the demands of many travellers.
  • It should also be noted that apart from the last few years, which have been marked by a significant drop in travel due to the health conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic, the TUI group shows a solid financial health. Indeed, for several years prior to the onset of the health crisis, the group recorded profits that were systematically and progressively increasing.
  • The marketing strategy of the group is also one of its main assets. Indeed, the company has made every effort to limit intermediaries by marketing its trips directly to individuals without going through tour operators.
  • From a geographical point of view, TUI has also been able to position itself on certain strategic markets with strong dynamics. These include the UK and French markets, where the company generates the majority of its revenues.
  • From a commercial point of view, TUI's brand image is strong and the group is highly appreciated by the general public for its services. The group's travel offerings are both unique and customisable, with a wide range of choices and prices.
  • The long-haul segment is also one of the segments in which the TUI group is very well positioned in relation to the competition. In particular, the company is the leader in this segment in its country, which enables it to generate more revenue.
  • The size of the TUI company is also one of its main advantages. It is worth noting that the group currently employs more than 50,000 people worldwide and this workforce accounts for its past growth.
  • Finally, the number of clients that the TUI Group has can also be analysed as a sign of its strength in the market. The company has more than 30 million customers worldwide, which is well above what most of its direct competitors can boast.
Negative factors for TUI shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the TUI share price:

Now that we've covered the major strengths of TUI, we'll take a look at some of the major weaknesses of the stock in the industry:

  • The first major weak point of the TUI group concerns of course the competition which remains strong and intense from other companies in this sector of activity and which threatens its market share and leadership.
  • The group also has to face certain cultural and social problems in the management of its international offices with regard to its strategy of global presence.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has also left its mark on the finances of the group, which is only just beginning to recover from the setbacks it has experienced. A continuation of this global problem or the occurrence of new restrictions could therefore weaken it further.
  • TUI's weak points also include the pricing environment in which it operates, which appears to be very difficult given the strength of the competition.
  • Finally, the group faces several operational risks, including exchange rate risks, interest rate risks, and political and economic risks in the countries in which it operates.
