European package holidays this year

Iím looking at Oct half term and feb half term next year as our school have released inset days which makes it more flexible/cheaper.

The only thing stopping me is I donít want to have to jump through hoops etc with testing and have the hassle of having to get tests to fly home etc/quarantine etc.

I know no one knows what itís going to be like but what were the main companies like this year... TUI/Jet2 for allowing customers to amend/transfer when the holidays were operating but there were restrictions? I donít might booking if weíd have the option to amend if we just thought it was too many hoops to jump through but donít want to be forced to go if we arenít comfortable with restrictions.

Any experience that people had would be great 👍

Tui package were reasonable last year and have a current promise. you will need to check if it suits you. I have a flight only deal rolled over from last year. Not so helpful here tbh. But will wait and see.

My mum had two jet2 holidays cancelled last year (one while she was on it). They were fabulous in both I stances and she has recommended them to all and sundry since. 👍. I presume they will have some.similar guarantee or t&C's.

Thank you both. Both do seem to offer free amends up to a certain date. I think I might just wait and see what restrictions are nearer the time. Travelling in peak school holidays itís the availability that worries me!

Weíve had two holidays booked with Jet2 during this period.They were amazing,one was a holiday to Gran Canaria that we moved from the May to October,which was cancelled.Our money was refunded within 10 days,and they communicated well with us the whole time.The second one was a holiday to Lanzarote in August,which we needed to change as we were unable to quarantine after.They were brilliant,one phone call and we changed the holiday to Italy!I would definitely recommend them for package holidays.

This.

My mum flew to Fuertventura last Feb but got diverted to Portugal due to sand storm.

Jet2 put everyone on their flight (including flight only) into accommodation at no cost including dinner, bed and breakfast.

Other airline customers slept at the airport.
