TUI to sell Jet2holidays

24th November 2010

Jet2holidays and TUI Travel UK & Ireland (TUI UK) have announced today that Thomson and First Choice retail shops and Superstores will now be able to sell Jet2holidays.

Jet2holidays and TUI UK have signed a commercial agreement that will see Jet2holidays available through all TUI UK's 862 shops. The Jet2holidays brochures will be placed in a prominent position racked in top tier throughout Thomson and First Choice shops in the Midlands, North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

In addition TUI UK and Jet2holidays will work together to position the brand online on the key supplementary TUI UK websites.

Jet2holidays offers package holidays that fly on Jet2.com flights from eight northern airports and offers a range of two - five star accommodation from self-catering to all-inclusive. At only £60 per person Jet2holidays' deposit is one of the lowest in the market. Jet2holidays offer duration flexibility and the pricing of a dynamic package but provides the security of an ABTA and ATOL protected tour operator.

Steve Heapy, Managing Director, Jet2holidays, said:

"We are delighted that Thomson and First Choice agents will now be able to sell Jet2holidays.

"Jet2.com's airline customers know and love the service that Jet2.com provides in the form of allocated seats, convenient flights times, and 22kg baggage allowance. Jet2holidays offers all this plus £60 deposit, a great choice of handpicked hotels, inclusive transfers, in-resort representatives and of course ATOL protection.

"Our dedicated trade team, headed up by Alan Cross, will support the agents closely to help them drive sales. Our trade website makes it possible for agents to view the best holiday deals with sales tools such as the "Holiday Calendar," allowing them to book late deals and holidays of any duration up to 18 months in advance."

Helen Deegan, Commercial and Trading Director for Distribution, TUI UK, commented:

"Jet2holidays is a quality product and service which offers our customers a wide range of destination choices from their local airport."

Information on Jet2holidays is available through www.Jet2holidays.com and through its main and Scottish specific brochures.

Agents can access the trade website at tradesite.jet2holidays.com and can order a brochure by calling 0800 408 5587.
