I paid just £5.19 for a seven-night holiday to Greece with my partner – here is how I did it | The Sun

A NURSE has revealed how he paid just £5.19 for a seven-night package holiday to Greece.

Daniel Aung, from Nottingham, bagged the trip with Jet2 as part of their Bid for a Break campaign, which lets Brits bid for holidays across Europe.


After bidding the lowest unique amount, Daniel will spend seven nights at Michelangelo Resort & Spa on the Greek island of Kos with his partner.

Daniel said: "I decided to enter the competition because it has been an incredibly busy year and I was hoping to be able to treat my partner to a holiday away.

"I chose the numbers entirely at random and I’m so excited to have won.”

To take part, customers need to decide on the price they want to pay and place a bid via the Jet2 app.

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 9am every Monday, with different locations to bid on until Thursday at midday, with winners announced that day.

Destinations include popular holiday hotspots in Europe, such as the Spanish Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Turkey.

Even if you aren't successful, applicants still get a £60 off code to use via the website.
