Shares in London-listed holiday firms Tui and Thomas Cook tumbled today amid concerns travel will suffer due to the Greek debt crisis which has intensified as a result of last night's "no" vote.

Shares in Thomas Cook closed down 4.85 per cent to 125.5p per share this afternoon while TUI's share price was 2.55 per cent lower at 14.34p per share.

Last night's "no" vote will prolong uncertainty that currently surrounds the situation in Greece as officials try to strike a mutually acceptable deal with its troika of creditors.

Greek authorities closed the country's banks ahead of yesterday's referendum, which are yet to re-open, and imposed capital controls. Consequently there's a €60 (£38) daily limit on ATM transactions in the country.

However, tourists are exempt from this as long as they use credit and debit cards issued outside of Greece.
