Boost To Travel Sector As New Gov. Regs Go Live

From today fully vaccinated customers arriving into England no longer have to take a pre-departure test in resort.

The secondary need for a more expensive PCR test after arriving in England is also scrapped from this Sunday (Jan 9th).

And the news has prompted varying reactions with Jet2 responding with a flash sale to give customers big savings on all flights and holidays whether travelling in Winter 21/22, Summer 22, Winter 22/23 or Summer 23.

With enormous pent-up demand for a much-needed holiday, the removal of these restrictions – including no longer having self-isolate upon arrival in England - has seen customers flocking to book some sunshine.

Jet2holidays, has announced a £50 off per person on all package holidays booked through Jet2holidays. TripAdvisor’s Best UK Airline,, is also offering 10% off flights.

All bookings must be made by 18th January 2021 for these promotions to apply.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “It is abundantly clear to everyone that travel testing requirements have had no impact on the spread of the Omicron variant, so this should represent the end of a set of measures that are not only disproportionate but futile too.

"That said, the removal of these travel restrictions is the news that our customers have been desperate to hear, and the massive surge in traffic and bookings tells us that holidays are very much back on for UK holidaymakers.

"Customers are jumping at the chance to book the holidays they have been looking forward to and we want to give them even more to smile about, which is why we are launching this sale.”
