What are EasyJet Holidays?
EasyJet offer package holidays that they call ‘EasyJet Holidays’. The platform allows you to book the following travel elements together at the same time:
Why book through EasyJet holidays?
As well as the convenience of being able to book your entire holiday in one place, you can usually save money by bundling different elements together. Most travel providers will offer discounts when combining multiple elements.
What is included in EasyJet Holidays?
- 23 kilograms of checked baggage for each passenger.
- Transfers between your destination airport to and from your accommodation, where you choose a beach or lake holiday.
- The ability to pay for your holiday in instalments with just a £60 per person upfront deposit, with the balance due 28 days before travel.
- A best price guarantee, where EasyJet Holidays will beat the price if you find a better deal elsewhere.
- Fee-free online changes to your booking up to 28 days before departure, including a full refund (including your deposit).
- ATOL protection.
Right now EasyJet Holidays do not offer private car rental as part of their packages, though you can book this if you book a flight-only fare.
How do I know what is included?
EasyJet Holidays use handy icons when showing each search result to indicate what is included in the price. All EasyJet Holidays benefit from ATOL protections and the payment and deposit options mentioned above. An example of one search results show the following icons:
This indicates your return flights (with checked baggage) and your accommodation is included. This option includes transfers and indicates it is a private transfer, so you won’t be sharing with other travellers.
Some options include a Free Child Place where your child can travel for free with a paying adult – this will be clearly indicated in the search results.
What destinations can I book an EasyJet Holiday at?
Most of EasyJet’s vast route network has package holiday options, from Edinburgh to Iceland, Berlin to Crete, and Paphos to Tenerife.
While your flights will be on EasyJet, the accommodation options range from budget through to true five star which gives travellers the flexibility of how much they want to spend on their holiday.
EasyJet also offer more than 1,000 all-inclusive options across Europe and Northern Africa.
If you’ve never been on an all-inclusive holiday they’re great for anyone who doesn’t want to make a lot of decisions when they get there and just wants to relax and read a book by the pool or beach. Inclusions range from property to property but you can book options where all food, drinks, activities and transfers are included – the only decisions you will need to make each day is how late to sleep in, and which cocktail to choose.
Budget all-inclusive package holidays in Europe have a bit of a reputation for having low-quality food, beverages, activities and clientele (think all-day conga-lines around the pool). While a £200 package holiday to Benidorm is unlikely to feature lobster and top-shelf spirits, travel providers like EasyJet Holidays and TUI have become increasingly sophisticated with the range of all-inclusive options that they offer — including some proper five star options. Sure, they cost more but you can expect a very high-level holiday for your money. Check both the star rating and the trip advisor rating of the all-inclusive options to have comfort in advance that you will be getting what you paid for.
Alternatively, if all-inclusive isn’t your style of travelling there are various self-catering options.
Do I have a choice of flight times with an EasyJet Holiday?
Yes, and this is a great feature of the programme. If you booked a holiday with an airline that only has a few flights a week to your destination you will be stuck with whatever flight time you are given. A 6 a.m. departure from an airport an hour from your home isn’t going to be the most relaxing start to a holiday.
Fortunately, EasyJet is a huge airline with massive routes and frequencies. If you’re looking to travel to, say Spain in summer, you’re likely to be given multiple flight times each day to choose from. If you want to maximise your holiday with an early departure from the U.K. you can. If you’d rather have a lie-in and take a later flight you can too. As part of the booking process, you will be shown the flight options. Some flights may carry a small surcharge if they are at more popular times but this is clearly indicated.
How can I save even more money on an EasyJet Holiday?
Look for last-minute deals. If you have the flexibility to travel at short notice you may find one of these big resorts still has unsold rooms that they are willing to sell for a big discount.
Also, travelling out of season, or in the shoulder season is likely to be much cheaper. A five star all-inclusive in Majorca during the August school holidays is not going to be cheap, but the exact same package holiday in April or May should be much cheaper. Obviously, you aren’t guaranteed great weather but the price saving may be worth it.
How do I book an EasyJet Holiday?
If you’re looking at EasyJet flights for your next holiday, consider booking your entire holiday with EasyJet Holidays. It’s very convenient to have a one-stop-shop to book multiple elements at once and you can expect to save a good amount by giving your custom to the one travel provider.
The destinations, options and prices range hugely so once you have an idea of where you might want to go and when, have a look through the options to find the best Easy Holiday for you.
