Jet2holidays is making it even easier for families to book and plan ahead for their well-earned break next year, with the launch of a specialist family brochure plus free child places on thousands of 2013 package holidays.

As time with loved ones becomes increasingly precious, Jet2holidays has expanded its family product by over 50 per cent, with its first dedicated brochure offering an unrivalled choice of 2 to 5 star hotels in more than 40 family friendly European resorts in 17 destinations. All hotels featured have been specially handpicked for their fantastic children’s facilities including full kids club programmes, dedicated play areas, family rooms and beachfront locations.

Also recognising that UK families want to make their holiday money stretch even further in the current economic climate, the package holiday specialist has introduced a range of special offers. In addition to free child places – which also includes a 22kg baggage allowance, infants go free on all Jet2holidays. Customers can also take advantage of specially negotiated meal deals where kids can eat for a penny when purchased with an adult meal. Single parent families also benefit, with reduced rates at selected hotels plus an extra £50 off their holiday when booking before 31st October 2012 and using promotion code J2HSPF50. Holiday prices start from £275 per person, and can be secured with a low deposit of just £60 per person.

Steve Heapy, Managing Director of Jet2holidays, said: “As a father myself, I know that travelling with children takes a lot of additional thought. Planning a holiday with little ones in tow can be a stressful time for parents, because they want to ensure they have chosen a resort the whole family will enjoy. With this dedicated brochure, Jet2holidays has made it easier for people to make the right decision by cherry picking a range of the most suitable hotels. Parents can relax knowing they have selected a holiday by experts who understand the key ingredients that make a family holiday so memorable.

“We also realise times are tough but understand that people don’t want to sacrifice their annual holidays abroad, hence introducing free child places at thousands of our most popular hotels. This, combined with our low deposit and part payment plan, gives people the flexibility to book their 2013 break now and budget effectively so there is something for the whole family to look forward to.”

Jet2holidays’ family packages fall within three categories: Family Favourites, offering fun and great value, Family Luxe, for people who want the ultimate in quality and style, and Experience More, where families enjoy the very best waterparks, theme parks and attractions during their holiday. This, combined with all inclusive options plus flexible durations from 1 to 42 nights, means people can easily tailor their holiday to suit their individual needs. New family hotels for 2013 include Sol Katmandu Resort in Majorca which has its own mini-theme park, 4D cinema, mini golf course and kids club.

Steve continued: “We believe we have an unrivalled offer when it comes to family holidays and we also understand that a good family holiday starts with a good flight from the convenience of your local airport. Our added benefits including allocated seating, generous 22kg baggage allowance for all those toys, child friendly flight times plus free in-flight activity packs, are designed to help make the holiday as hassle free as possible. We’re really excited by our great range of holidays and invite families across the UK take full advantage of our award winning holiday service to ensure they have a break to remember that doesn’t break the bank.”

Jet2holidays’ new family brochure coincides with the launch of its biggest ever summer 2013 and winter 2012/13 brochure which features 86 NEW hotels including the 4-star Mersoy Oriental, a hidden gem in Dalaman, plus the 3-star Galeon Playa Apartments in Lanzarote, which is located on one of the most beautiful spots in Costa Teguise.

Steve added: “With our holidays, customers are guaranteed great value as standard. Whatever holiday people are looking for we are confident we have something that caters for everyone’s style – whether that’s partying with friends in iconic Ibiza or enjoying a romantic escape on the stunning Turkish coast. Our new brochure is our best one yet and we are looking forward to helping people have great holidays next year!”
