Package holidays - am I missing something?

We are thinking of booking a week AI next Easter but haven't done anything like this before so have had a look at a couple of places to get an idea of prices. A week booked through Jet2 with transfers but no car would cost just under 2100 for four but if we book the same hotel direct and then arrange flights and car hire with BA it comes to 1400. We would get the same luggage allowance and there are more flights to choose from if we went with BA. We would also have the car to use all week as well.
Am I missing something obvious as I can't understand why there would be such a difference in booking yourself compared to a package. Thanks

Either way thats a really good price for an AI holiday at Easter!

Just make sure the diy price includes luggage, transfers and the same AI deal and youre good to go 👍

1400 seems very cheap for a week AI for 4 people with car & flights? Just double check everything is included ( ie car ins & luggage etc..)

We always book separate. Find its much cheaper and we usually do private transfers. We book easy jet holidays and use travel republic for hotels.

Sounds a fab deal. I would check every little detail to make sure it includes everything and book it quick before it disappears. I do usually find Jet 2 to be quite expensive. I havent booked a package in years, always price up but always more expensive.
Would be interested to know dates/ destination etc.

We often use Jet2 holidays and find them midrange price wise. I always think Tui, First choice are pretty expensive. With TC being more or less depending when and where you are going.

Try going through the likes of Travel Republic, they will book things separately but at the same time and you can pick and choose each component to suit. Ive always found them very competitive. I believe they are owned by the Emirates group.

Ive tried pricing up separately in the past but it never seems to work out cheaper that way, not sure why?

I always price DIY and package and then just book the cheapest.

I agree yours sounds an unbelievable saving. Are you sure it's the exact same holiday? If so, I'd book.

We struggle to get flights for four to beach destinations for less than 250-300 each.
