A WOMAN has bagged a seven-night holiday to Greece for just £1.60 – and it includes return flights.
Fionna Siddons, from West Yorkshire, bid the tiny amount on a Jet2 trip, and managed to be the lowest bidder.
The cheap holiday was part of a new scheme launched by Jet2 – the Bid For a break campaign, which lets Brits bid for holidays across Europe.
She told local media she bid the small amount as it was the first three numbers of her birthday – only to be told that she was the only person to bid that amount on the four-star holiday, and so won it.
Being the lowest bidder, that meant she got seven nights and return flights to Santorini, staying at a four-star hotel, for less than two quid.
She said she was "over the moon" knowing that she had a holiday for less than the price of a cup of coffee.
To take part, customers need to do is visit Bid for a break on the Jet2holidays website and decide on the price they want to pay and place a bid.
If they are the only user to bid that amount and that amount is the lowest, they will buy the holiday for that price.
Jet2 boss Steve Heapy said: " We know how much UK holidaymakers want to get away to enjoy some much-needed sunshine and now we are giving them the chance to do just that in a fun way for only a few pounds."
There will be a new holiday available to bid on every week to places including the Balearics, Canary Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey and Spain.
Bids will open at 9am on a Monday and can be placed until midday on the Thursday, before the lowest unique bid is announced on the same day.
Those that are unsuccessful will receive a £100 discount code for their next holiday.
