Jeanette Edwards has scooped herself a 4+ star holiday to Majorca with Jet2holidays for just £5.70 after entering the tour operator’s ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign on its mobile app and successfully bidding that amount.

After placing her bid, Jeanette was told that as she was the only user to bid that amount on the holiday and that amount was the lowest, it meant that she had entered the lowest unique bid and bought the three-night holiday for that same price.

The UK’s leading tour operator to destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and Canary Islands is offering holidaymakers the opportunity to bid on their next holiday every week through its mobile app.
