easyJet holidays launched the new Protection Promise while also calling for the industry as a whole to react to changing customer demands on the subject of refunds and cancellations. In a report titled “Taking The Temperature”, easyJet stated 33 millions Britons had their 2020 holiday plans disrupted due to Covid-19 restrictions, and 57 percent intend to book fewer holidays over the next year.
“In recognition of these changing needs, and after listening to the concerns of our customers, we have launched our new easyJet holidays Protection Promise.
“We hope this guarantee of flexibility and protection will act as a new benchmark for the holiday industry and, in addition to our existing COVID-19 commitments, will encourage holidaymakers to book with confidence.”
Indeed, consumer confidence in the travel industry has taken a massive hit this year amid countless stories of delayed refunds and cancelled bookings, and with last-minute changes on quarantine rules by the government seeing thousands of holidaymakers scrabbling to get back to the UK or face two week quarantine restrictions.
Only 38 percent of those surveyed by easyJet are willing to quarantine for two weeks on their return home – it can only be assumed many of the rest would avoid travel outside the UK altogether than risk facing such measures following a holiday abroad.
Flights and accommodation are included in the price and beach holidays include transfers to and from the airport.
easyJet are also offering a 23kg baggage allowance so holidaymakers can pack big for their summer break.
easyJet is offering up seven nights in Tenerife which from £235 per person and seven nights all-incisive in Majorca from £364 per person.
For just £131 per person, Britons can enjoy seven nights in Dalaman, Turkey from London Gatwick in April 2021.
