Student buys a 7-night holiday to Benidorm for 21 quid – including flights | The Sun

A WOMAN has secured a seven-night holiday to Spain, including flights and accommodation for just £20.92.

Sophie Kearins, a student from Manchester successfully bid with Jet2Holidays' Bid on a Break scheme and bagged a 4-star stay in the Marina Hotel in Benidorm.

The person with the lowest original bid will get the holiday for the price they offered.

Bids open at 9.00am on a Monday and can be placed until midday on Thursday, before the lowest unique bid is announced on the same day, but the campaign is taking a break until 2023.

Sophie is the 29th winner this year and secured a holiday for the same price as their lowest bid.

Holidaymakers have also successfully bid on and secured getaways to the Canary Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, the Algarve, and Turkey with successful bids starting from as little as £1.40.

Sophie said: "I have entered Jet2holidays’ Bid for a Break every week since I went away with Jet2holidays earlier this year to Portugal.

"I saw the advertisement for the Bid for a Break competition and thought I had nothing to lose! I didn't have much of a strategy for my bidding amount, I just put the first four numbers that sprang to my mind.

"I can’t believe I actually won and can’t wait to go on holiday with Jet2holidays again!"
