Jet2 is offering dream trips abroad to lucky low bidders, meaning you could bag a seven night holiday for as little as 1p.

The tour operator’s “Bid for a Break” promotion allows hopeful holidaymakers to bid at little as they choose for a trip, but there’s a catch. You can only win if your bid is unique, so while the winning bid needs to be the lowest, it also needs to be the only bid of that amount.

After so much time spent at home in recent years, many of us are dreaming of some sunnier climes and a bit of relaxation. The Bid for a Break scheme could make those dreams a reality.

: Jet2 issues travel update ahead of summer holidays

The trip currently on offer is a seven-night holiday for two adults to the four-star Gara Suites Golf & Spa in Playa de las Americas, Tenerife. Previous winners have jetted off to destinations including Santorini, Cyprus and Turkey – after bidding just £1.60, £4.15 and £14.46 respectively.

Potential holiday-makers will need to visit ‘bid for a break’ on Jet2’s website and make their bid. The bidding war ends at midday on Thursday (May 12).

Jet2 has added thousands of extra holidays and flight seats to cope with surging summer demand from people wishing to soak up some sun. More services have now been introduced to the Greek island of Crete.

This comes after an announcement last month that extra routes would be created to link a number of UK airports to resorts in Spain, Turkey and Portugal. Those extra flights were added timed for the bank holidays in May, as well as the Platinum Jubilee long weekend in June.
