It’s been oh so long since we were able to jet off on our holidays and it feels wonderful to be able to start getting ready for holidays again with Jet 2. Dust off your sunhats and suncream and get the map out to plan where to jet to next.
Voted the UK’s best low-cost airline, Jet 2 are celebrating their new base at Bristol Airport with their Big Summer Getaway promotions, check out their full list of destinations from Bristol here. Bristol airport is such a dream, not overly big to get lost in trying to find your morning flights but big enough to fly to all your dream holiday destinations.
Jet 2 really has made it so much simpler to travel, by finding available holidays based on your vaccination status, and popular travel destinations marked as Green, Amber, and Red destinations, and the deals available. But not only are they chock full of useful information, but their travel insurance actually covers COVID-19 and FDCO! Which you can agree is a relief and peace of mind when travelling in these uncertain times, meaning you can just worry about how much suncream to pack!
Jet 2 kindly sent me a lovely hamper of all the travel essentials you could possibly need and make sure you’re taking notes for your packing list.
I don’t know about you but I always find that the hardest job is choosing where to go, my dream travel list is forever being added to, but Lonely Planet has created the ultimate Europe trip planner for every month of the year, to make decision making a breeze. Whether you fancy a food tour in Rome or discovering off the beaten track Ibiza, Jet 2 has a number of city breaks flying direct from Bristol, find a destination here. And then make sure to scratch it off your map!
One of my favourite travel memories was to fill up several disposable cameras and not finding out what had turned out great and what was a blurry hot mess, whilst huddled over the photo packets in the local pharmacy with your holiday tan. Jet 2 gave me a new disposal camera and scrapbook to fill with all new travel memories.
I’m a big ol’tech nerd and need to have a bag for just my cables when I’m away as now I’m so dependant on my phone to capture those travel memories. A power pack is an answer to all your low battery nightmares. You also need it to power up your Bluetooth speaker for those poolside beats and if you’re clumsy like me, a waterproof case like this one from Yosh, will save any pool selfie accidents. But if you want the less tech side of entertainment when relaxing on holiday, then you need the perfect holiday book and Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid is exactly the book for you!
Nibbles, Drinks and Scene Setting
Spirit of Zing has crafted the perfect cocktail travel pack. Travel friendly at 50ml, the single-serve bottles are available in packs for Gin, Mojitos and Margaritas, Mixed Cocktails, Whisky, or Tequila, perfect for a predinner drink on the balcony whilst you’re getting ready. And the delicious smelling Kip Candle Co has a range of mini travel-inspired candles to help you reminisce, the Lisbon candle is to encapsulate ‘Breakfast sitting under the vibrant blue sky, skin salty from hours of surfing sipping espresso and eating zesty grapefruit as the sun warms the beautifully tiled terracotta streets ahead of a day of adventure.’
Suncare is arguably one of the most important items for a summer holiday when the sun is much stronger abroad. Coming in under £10, Bondi Sand’s SPF 30 smells absolutely divine and is water-resistant for 4 hours. Cruelty-free and reef-friendly, you’ll feel moisturised and protected without harming the environment.
