Jet2 offering family holidays for pennies

Families hunting for a cheap holiday this summer will want to have a go at benefitting from a new offer from Jet2. The company’s ‘bid for a break’ scheme is back.

The way it works is that bargain hunters can submit bids for week-long holidays in destinations such as Crete, Gran Canaria and Tenerife. In fact, you can even bid as low as 1p for the experience.

There’s a catch, however – only the lowest unique bidder wins the getaway. Nevertheless, you could end up landing a holiday for pennies.

The Mirror say that last year, 23 holidaymakers won getaways to the Canary Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Portugal and Turkey, with some of the bids starting from just 2p. Different holidays are released on different days.

At the moment, you can bid for a break to Bulgaria from May 16, Crete from May 23, and Gran Canaria from May 30. There’s a mix of deals for both couples and families of four.

Jet2’s ‘bid for a break’ – how to take part

Putting in your bid is simple:

  • Download the Jet2holidays app
  • Go to the ‘Offers’ page
  • Select ‘Bid for a break’
  • Fill out the form with your contact details
  • Add in your lowest unique bid, to the nearest pence

You can find out more about the holidays and get the full terms and conditions on the Jet2 website. But even if you don’t win the bidding war, you can still save money by taking part.

Save £60 on a Jet2 holiday

There’s a silver lining for all participants. Unsuccessful bidders will still receive a special discount code giving them £60 off their next holiday.

But remember, some holiday spots still have some Covid-19 rules in place. For example, if you’re hoping to visit the likes of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, adults need to be vaccinated while unvaccinated kids aged 12-17 will need a PCR test to be granted entry.

Entry requirements can change quickly during the pandemic, so always check the Foreign Office’s latest travel advice for a destination before you book a trip or go abroad. This will include key information – from entry requirements to local Covid rules you need to know.
