Mum, 23, wins FIVE-star Turkey vacation for family after betting just 70p
A mum won a five-star vacation to Turkey after entering a raffle for just 70p.
Caitlin Simm, 23, took over the family vacation after betting on Jet2holidays’s “Bid for a Break” campaign.
The mom, from Wigan, was the only person to enter the contest betting the lowest amount of 70p.
To participate, customers must decide on the price they want to pay and make an offer.
Auctions open at 9 a.m. every Monday, with different places to bid until Thursday, with winners announced that day.
Caitlin said, “I still can’t believe I bought a 5 star luxury stay with Jet2holidays for just 70p.
“I love going on vacation, but things haven’t been easy the last few years, so it came at the right time.
“I picked the auction at random and luck must have been on my side.”
So far, ten lucky Britons have secured vacations in Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Turkey, Canary Islands, Algarve and Balearic Islands.
“This will be our first family vacation and we can’t wait,” said Caitlin.
“We would like to thank Jet2holidays for giving us this opportunity, and I urge everyone to get involved and place their bid as it could be you who fly next!”
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “To celebrate our 10th anniversary for Indulgent Escapes, we have offered two very special 5 star luxury vacations as part of our ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign.
“We would like to congratulate Caitlin for successfully bidding on our second indulgent getaway, and hope that she and all of her family have a fantastic stay in Dalaman.”
It comes after a man from Darlington managed to get a four-star vacation, including round-trip flights with his family to Turkey for just £ 10.61 in the same Jet2holiday campaign.
Mr Leitch said he was “in disbelief” that he won it for his family.
He told local media: “I honestly can’t believe I just bought a break with Jet2holidays for £ 10.61.”
“My family love Turkey, it is our favorite vacation spot so I am delighted to have successfully placed the offer.
“I’m so excited and can’t wait to go on a well-deserved vacation. I urge everyone to get involved, because you have to be in it to win, after all.”
