It has been announced today that Turkey is to scrap visa charges for UK holidaymakers from next month.

British travellers must currently apply online for a permit to travel to Turkey, which costs £27 per person.

From 2nd March 2020, this will no longer apply – significantly reducing the cost of a holiday to Turkey. For a family of four, this means a saving of over £100!

Thanks to this announcement, there has never been a better time to book our award-winning flights and holidays to Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman or Izmir.

Commenting on this announcement, Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays has said: “The removal of Turkish visa charges is fantastic news for British holidaymakers, as it means more money in their pockets. Turkey is one of our most popular destinations, and this news makes it much easier for hard-working British families to enjoy a well-deserved holiday to this beautiful country. and Jet2holidays congratulates the Turkish government on this progressive and forward-thinking move, which will hugely benefit the tourism industry and the Turkish economy.”
