A YATE COUPLE bagged a Turkish getaway at a 5 star hotel for just over a tenner. 

After Andrew Haskins, a construction assistant manager from Yate, placed his bid of £10.85, he was told he had entered the lowest unique bid and purchased the seven-night Indulgent Escapes holiday for two adults to the NG Phaselis Bay LifeStyle Resort in Antalya for that same price.

Since its launch in 2021, Jet2holidays’ ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign, millions of customers have bid in the online auction through the UK tour operator in the hope of securing a getaway with Jet2holidays from as little as a few pence.

Over the last three years, other holidaymakers have bid on and secured getaways with Jet2holidays to destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, with successful bids starting from just 2p.

Andrew said: “My wife, Toni-Ann, and I have entered Bid for a Break a few times, but until now have not been successful.

"I saw on Instagram that the competition had relaunched and decided to give it another go. The winning amount is a combination of the date I met my wife (10th June) and the year I was born (1985) – a silly idea that resulted in a fantastic holiday win for us!

"Thank you to Jet2holidays – we can’t wait to go to Antalya!”

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Since its launch, our Bid for a Break campaign has proven extremely popular with holidaymakers.

"At Jet2, we’re always looking at ways to give our customers more, so that is why we wanted to bring back the campaign again and give everyone another chance to bid for a break.

"We would like to congratulate Andrew on his successful bid to secure an Indulgent Escape to Antalya for just £10.85.

"We hope he and his wife have a fantastic time in Turkey."
