Joanna Tyson, from Rochdale in Lanchashire, has scooped herself a 4-star holiday to Lanzarote with Jet2holidays for just £3.94, after entering the tour operator’s ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign on its mobile app and successfully bidding that amount.
Joanna has paid just a few pounds for her next holiday, after being inspired to bid £3.94 for the sunshine getaway by her daughter, who she asked to pick three numbers between one and nine. After placing her bid, Joanna 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 enterered the lowest unique bid and bought the seven-night holiday for that same price.
The UK’s leading tour operator to destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and Canary Islands is offering holidaymakers the opportunity to bid on their next holiday every week through its mobile app. There will be a new seven-night holiday available to bid on each week 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.
Joanna said: “I’m absolutely over the moon to have bought a holiday with Jet2holidays for just £3.94. It will make such as difference and allow us to enjoy a much-deserved holiday in my favourite sunshine destination. I’d urge everyone to get involved and place their bid. It will feel fantastic being on holiday and knowing that I have paid the same price for it as my favourite Friday night toastie treat!”
