As demand for holidays continues, data published by Jet2holidays shows that many holidaymakers are opting for the privacy of a villa holiday, as ATOL protected package holidays booked through Jet2Villas have trebled in recent weeks.

Since the Prime Minister’s announcement of an exit roadmap from lockdown, Jet2holidays, the UK’s leading tour operator to destinations across the Mediterranean and Canary Islands has seen an increase in bookings, and analysis of bookings data shows that villas are one of the holiday choices in demand. The data shows that demand for Jet2Villas is strong across many destinations with searches and bookings up for Summer 21 and Summer 22.

In the past month, bookings through Jet2Villas have risen by almost 200% as customers respond to the assurance that its ATOL protected holidays provide, with the privacy and freedom of a villa stay on top.

In response to this demand, Jet2Villas has expanded the number of properties on sale, adding hundreds of new villas across destinations in Greece, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands in particular. This expansion takes the total number of villas on sale to over 2,200 across 42 destinations.

Across both mainland Greece and its islands, the company has expanded its range of properties in response to strong demand. The expansion means that Jet2Villas now has over 500 villas on sale in Greece thanks to the introduction of new properties in destinations such as Kalamata, Santorini, Mykonos, Kefalonia, Zante and Corfu. In total, Jet2Villas has properties on sale across 12 destinations in Greece (Kefalonia, Zante, Crete, Rhodes, Preveza, Kalamata, Skiathos, Skopelos, Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos and Halkidiki).

Villa holidays in Mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands are also experiencing strong demand. For Summer 21, Jet2Villas has over 1,000 properties on sale across Spain and its islands, with more than 200 in Mainland Spain, more than 200 in the Canary Islands, and over 500 in the Balearic Islands.

Booking through Jet2Villas means that customers can enjoy their own villa and complete privacy alongside the benefits of a package holiday, a formula which is proving very popular for customers looking for the chance to relax in their own space.

As well as ATOL protection customers also get to experience and enjoy the company’s VIP customer service which has seen Jet2holidays repeatedly win high-profile accolades such as Which? Recommended Provider. This VIP customer service includes friendly flight times, generous 22kg baggage allowance and 10kg hand baggage allowance through award-winning Jet2.com – all for a £60 per person booking deposit. On top of this, car hire is included as standard throughout the entire holiday.*

To help customers get the holiday they deserve, Jet2Villas is also offering £100 off per person on all villa holidays booked before or on 31st March. The promotion is applicable on all villa holidays on sale, including Summer 21, Winter 21 and Summer 22, meaning a family of four can save a whopping £400 and book in that much-needed sunshine!

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Our customers want nothing more than to enjoy a much-needed holiday, many of them with their family or as part of a group, and Jet2Villas is proving to be the perfect fit for them. All the package holiday benefits that customers get through booking with Jet2Villas is proving to be extremely attractive, as is the privacy that they can enjoy, and this has fuelled strong demand for our villa holidays. Knowing they can book a villa holiday with ATOL protection, car hire and Jet2.com flights included is obviously a popular proposition for customers who are looking for that sense of freedom.

“Once again, we have responded to that demand and expanded our product portfolio to include an even greater range of fantastic villas. This choice, coupled with the fact our award-winning real package holidays are behind the whole experience, means that Jet2Villas is proving to be a very popular proposition with customers and independent travel agents.”
