David Johnson, from Harrogate, has become the 14th holidaymaker to successfully ‘Bid on a Break’ with Jet2holidays, seeing him scoop a 4-star holiday to Madeira for him and his family for just £10.77.

After placing his bid of £10.77 through the tour operator’s ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign, David was told that he had entered the lowest unique bid.

This meant that he had purchased the seven-night All Inclusive holiday to the Four Views Oasis in Madeira for two adults and two children for that same price.

Holidays to the Canary Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, the Algarve, and Turkey with Jet2holidays have been secured by 14 lucky holidaymakers through the campaign, with successful bids starting from just 2p.

To get involved, all customers need to do is download the Jet2holidays app on the App Store or Google Play, add in their bid to the nearest pence and then cross their fingers.

If they are the only user to bid that amount and that amount is the lowest, they will buy the holiday for that price.

Bids open at 9.00am on a Monday and can be placed until midday on the Thursday, before the lowest unique bid is announced on the same day.

David said: “We are all super excited about successfully bidding for a break and securing a holiday to Madeira with Jet2holidays for just £10.77.

"My family and I have not had a holiday abroad for a few years now and the chance of a relaxing trip to Madeira has come just at the right time for us.

"My daughter celebrated her seventh birthday this week and inspired the bid we placed. I’d urge everyone to get involved, as you’ve got to be in it to win it, after all!”
