Jet2holidays Adds Hundreds of Thousands of Free Child Place Holidays

Jet2holidays has added hundreds of thousands of Free Child Place holidays across the 2024 school holidays

Ahead of what is expected to be a busy weekend for customers booking family holidays via independent travel agents, Jet2holidays, the UK’s largest tour operator, has today (Friday 12 January) added hundreds of thousands of Free Child Place holidays across the 2024 school holidays.

The additions are on top of millions of Free Child Place Holidays that are already available. As a result, this means Jet2holidays has more Free Child Place holidays available than ever.

With customers booking their well-deserved holidays into the diary during the ‘peak’ booking period, the package holiday specialist expects this weekend to see lots of family holiday bookings, with demand traditionally increasing over the first weekend after the schools have returned following the Christmas break.

As well as reporting demand for late bookings for this winter, Jet2holidays has said that Summer 24, the company’s biggest ever summer programme is currently selling well. and Jet2holidays have over 17 million seats on sale to 60 destinations for Summer 24. As a result of this expanded programme, Jet2 will operate over 420 routes, including more than 50 that are brand-new, from across its 11 UK airports this coming summer – a huge expansion meaning unrivalled choice for holidaymakers.

Destinations enjoying popularity right now include the Canaries, Balearics, Mainland Spain, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Italy, Malta and Bulgaria.

To help independent travel agents capitalise, Jet2holidays is running ‘Prepare2Peak’ a bespoke campaign which has been developed with independent travel agents and homeworkers so that they have the knowledge, tools and incentive to drive more footfall, enquiries and sales during the peak booking period.

At the heart of the campaign is an offer targeted at independent travel agents and homeworkers meaning that they can offer customers £60 per person off ALL Jet2holidays booked through the trade, which is an extra £10 off when compared to the standard offer for direct customers.

The offer means that couples can save £120 if they book a Jet2holiday via an independent travel agent and a family of four can enjoy £240 off.

Jet2holidays is also running a bespoke competition, giving independent travel agency and homeworker partners the chance to win one of 100 places on a Destination Discovery with Jet2holidays. To be in with a chance of winning one of the 100 spots available, all partners need to do is make a Jet2holidays booking between 1st January and 29th February 2024.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “With the schools going back this week, we are seeing demand for family holidays increase as people get planning and booking their holidays. We are expecting more of this over the weekend, which is why we have put hundreds of thousands of extra Free Child Place holidays on sale, meaning we have never had so many Free Child Place holidays available, with millions up for grabs.”

He added: “As the UK’s largest tour operator we are looking forward to taking millions of new and existing customers away. With so many people flocking to book their well-deserved holidays, we are working hard to support our valued agency partners and our advice to customers is visit your local independent travel agent now and get the best advice, best deals and best holidays.”
