A Gateshead couple have returned from a trip to Portugal with more than just a golden glow this week, thanks to and Jet2holidays.

After landing at Newcastle Airport, Steven and Karen McGill were surprised with a giant Golden Cheque entitling them to a free holiday for summer 2016.

The lucky pair were picked at random for the special surprise as part of’s and Jet2holidays’ unique Rain Cheque initiative. Between now and 31st October 2015, all customers flying back to the UK with the leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist will be handed a voucher which will give them a £60 discount off a summer 2016 holiday booking – a perfect antidote to a rainy day when people are dreaming of their next sunshine escape!

Speaking about their Golden Cheque win, Steven said: “It didn’t really sink in when we first heard we were the winners but what a great way to banish the post-holiday blues.

“As soon as we landed, I texted my sister as she had flown back at the same time with another airline – we’re so glad we chose and Jet2holidays. What a brilliant end to our holiday!”

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “The McGills are one of seven lucky customers who will be treated to a free holiday as part of our Rain Cheque promotion. We launched this initiative to put a smile on our customers’ faces when returning back home from their holidays and it certainly seems to have done the trick with Karen and Steven. I hope they have a great trip with us next year!”
