Beach paradise

Turkey is often described as the ultimate bridge between east and west – both in culture and location. Never ending beaches, geological wonders and some of the best food on the continent, for some there is nowhere else like Turkey.

Jet2holidays offers a break in Altinkum in the Bodrum area of Turkey, staying at the 4 star plus Aquasis Deluxe Resort & Spa on a seven-nights all-inclusive basis with flights departing from Leeds Bradford on August 19. Price: £707 per person based on two adults and two children.

Dream getaway

With its paradise islands, incredible food, history and culture, Greek holidays are a guaranteed dream getaway. From the incredible islands to the cultural hub of the mainland, Greece is often regarded as a Mediterranean gem, offering a slice of both relaxation and adventure.

Jet2holidays offer a break in Agios Ioannis, staying at the five star MarBella Corfu, for seven nights half-board departing from Leeds Bradford on August 29. Price: £801 per person based on two adults and two children.

Spike in demand

Steve Heapy, chief executive officer of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are seeing a real spike in demand for holidays and flights to Turkey and Greece, and we have been quick to respond to what our customers want. With more seats and holidays on sale, along with some fabulous deals, there’s no better time to escape the gloom of the UK and reach the turquoise seas and stunning beaches of Turkey and Greece.”
