Archive and Jet2holidays launch flash sale as demand soars following easing of travel restrictions

Posted in Announcements

January 05, 2022 at 17:37 and Jet2holidays have responded to today’s travel update from the UK Government by launching a flash sale giving customers huge savings on all flights and holidays whether travelling in Winter 21/22, Summer 22, Winter 22/23 or Summer 23. 

Following the news that fully vaccinated customers arriving into England no longer have to take a pre-departure test in resort from 4am on Friday 7th January 2022, or an expensive PCR test after arriving in England from 4am on Sunday 9th January, and Jet2holidays have seen an immediate spike in traffic and bookings. With enormous pent-up demand for a much-needed holiday, the removal of these restrictions – including no longer having self-isolate upon arrival in England - has seen customers flocking to book some sunshine.  

Jet2holidays, the UK’s leading tour operator to many leisure destinations across Europe, the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean, has responded to that demand by today announcing £50 off per person on all package holidays booked through Jet2holidays.  

TripAdvisor’s Best UK Airline,, is also offering 10% off flights.  

All bookings must be made by 18th January 2021 for these promotions to apply. The promotion is applicable to all package holidays and flights on sale for Winter 21/22, Summer 22, Winter 22/23 or Summer 23, meaning holidaymakers can save big and enjoy a holiday they deserve. In addition, with millions of free child places available, holidaymakers can get away for much less and book in some much-needed time together. 

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “It is abundantly clear to everyone that travel testing requirements have had no impact on the spread of the Omicron variant, so this should represent the end of a set of measures that are not only disproportionate but futile too. That said, the removal of these travel restrictions is the news that our customers have been desperate to hear, and the massive surge in traffic and bookings tells us that holidays are very much back on for UK holidaymakers. Customers are jumping at the chance to book the holidays they have been looking forward to and we want to give them even more to smile about, which is why we are launching this sale.” 

He added: “Whether it is a family holiday, a break with the other half or a group get together, we know how much everyone needs that well-deserved holiday. Holidays just got a lot easier and whether it is sun, ski or a leisure city holiday, we can see just what a shot in the arm today is for customer confidence. We entered 2022 with a real sense of positivity about the year ahead and today’s update from the UK Government gets the year off to a fantastic start. We look forward to further positive updates from the Scottish Government and Northern Ireland Executive.”
