JET2 has brought back its summer campaign allowing Brits to go on holiday for just 1p.
It might sound too good to be true, but it’s not – Lynn Marriot, from County Durham, landed a seven-night return holiday in Crete last year on Jet2 for 2p.
She wrapped the trip in the travel company’s 2021 Bid for a Break campaign, which allowed Brits to bid on holidays across Europe.
She told York Press at the time: “I am absolutely delighted to have bought a holiday from Jet2holidays for just 2p.
“It was such a nice surprise…I urge everyone to get involved and do your bid.”
To participate, customers must decide on a price they wish to pay and place a bid via the Jet2 app.
If they are the only user bidding that amount and that amount is the lowest, they buy the vacation at that price.
Bidding opens at 9am every Monday, with various locations open to bid through Thursday noon, with winners being announced on that day.
Destinations include popular holiday hotspots in Europe, such as the Spanish islands, Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Turkey.
This week’s break is a seven-day holiday in Tenerife, with trips ahead including a week in Bulgaria, Crete and Gran Canaria.
Even if you are unsuccessful, applicants will still receive a £60 discount code to use via the website.
Jet2 boss Steve Heapy said they restarted the program after international travel was back, but Brits wanted some “much-needed sunshine”.
He said: “The campaign was very successful last year and now we’re giving holidaymakers a chance to get away in a fun way, for possibly just pennies, thanks to their return.”
Lynn Marriot wasn’t the only Brit to take a bargain break last summer, with a mum winning a five-star holiday to Turkey for just 70p through the scheme.
Another woman booked a seven-day holiday in Santorini for just £1.60, while Darlington resident David Leitch paid £10.61 for seven nights in Turkey with his family.
And Dolly Millard, from Hertfordshire, paid just over a tenner for a four-day break at a four-star hotel in Ibiza.
