Jet2 reports holiday sales surging since travel rules eased

Tour operator Jet2holidays and airline Jet2.com have reported a surge in bookings following the easing of travel restrictions by the UK Government.

The removal of pre-departure testing in resort as well as the scrapping of expensive PCR tests after arrival in England and Northern Ireland for fully vaccinated customers, has brought an immediate spike in trade.

Bookings have increased by 150 per cent when compared to the previous day, and the increase in demand since the Government announcement sees bookings returning to pre-pandemic levels.

Customers have been flocking to book holidays across popular sun, ski and leisure city destinations including mainland Spain, the Canaries, the Balearic Islands, Turkey, and Greece.

Immediately after the announcement by the UK Government, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays launched a flash sale giving customers huge savings on flights and holidays for Winter 21/22, Summer 22, Winter 22/23, and Summer 23.

It is offering £50 off per person on all package holidays booked through Jet2holidays and Jet2.com, is also offering 10 per cent off flights travelling up to and including October 31, 2022.
