Edmonton Green resident secures holiday to Antalya with Jet2holidays for £8.35


05th October 2021 • Posted in Announcements

Vera Varela, from Edmonton Green in North London, has become the ninth holidaymaker to successfully bid on a holiday with Jet2holidays through the tour operator’s ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign, seeing her scoop a 4-star holiday to Antalya in Turkey for just £8.35.  

After placing her bid of £8.35, Vera was told that as she was the only user to bid that amount on the holiday and that amount was the lowest, it meant that she had entered the lowest unique bid and bought the seven-night holiday for two adults and two children for that same price.  

Vera is the latest person to successfully ‘Bid for a Break’ with Jet2holidays, after the UK’s leading tour operator to destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and Canary Islands launched the unique campaign, offering holidaymakers the opportunity to bid on their next holiday every week through its mobile app.  

The holidaymakers who have successfully ‘Bid for a Break’ since the campaign was launched include:  

  • Joanna Tyson who won a holiday to Lanzarote for just £3.94 
  • Fionna Siddons who won a holiday to Santorini for just £1.60 
  • Joanne Eames who won a holiday to Cyprus for just £4.15 
  • Kim Fraser who won a holiday to Gran Canaria for just £6.06 
  • Lynn Marriott who won a holiday to Crete for just 2p 
  • Lyn Hinks who won a holiday to Costa de Almeria for just £4.85 
  • Jeanette Edwards who won a holiday to Majorca for just £5.70 
  • Claire Hudson who won a holiday to the Algarve for just £8.51 

Each week, there is a new holiday available with Jet2holidays to bid on to sunshine hotspots including the Balearics, Canary Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey and Spain. Bids will open at 9.00am on a Monday every week and can be placed until midday on the Thursday, before the lowest unique bid is announced on the same day. 

To get involved, all customers need to do is visit Bid for a break | Jet2holidays decide on the price they want to pay and place a bid. If they are the only user to bid that amount and that amount is the lowest, they will buy the holiday for that price. To take part, customers need to download the Jet2holidays app on the App Store or Google Play, fill out the form with their contact details, add in their bid to the nearest pence and then cross their fingers.  

Vera said: “I honestly can’t believe I have just bought a break with Jet2holidays for £8.35. I’ve entered every week, so it was a huge shock to place the successful bid. I’m so excited and I can’t wait to head off on this much needed holiday. I’d urge everyone to get involved and place their bid because it could be you jetting off next!” 

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “Congratulations to Vera who is the ninth lucky holidaymaker to successfully bid for a holiday with Jet2holidays. We know how much UK holidaymakers want to get away to enjoy some much-needed sunshine and now we are giving them the chance to do just that in a fun way for only a few pounds. Everyone deserves the chance to get away and our ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign offers every person to do just that without breaking the bank, so make sure you have a bid in mind for next week’s holiday.”
