easyJet has announced the relaunch of its holiday business, easyJet holidays, aimed at offering flexible holidays to handpicked hotels across Europe.
UK customers can book hotels in Europe, together with an easyJet flight option on one platform.
Available from 28 November, the service can be accessed both online and through easyJet’s app. The package holidays will include flights, hotels, transfers and 23kg of luggage per passenger.
easyJet holidays is directly contracting hotels for the first time, giving holidaymakers the choice of staying at handpicked hotels. The range of high-quality hotels has been carefully selected by experts, with bespoke collections carefully designed to suit every holiday type, such as beach holidays and city breaks. Customers can choose from over 5,000 hotels across more than 100 destinations.
The business has also introduced new technology to ensure a quick and seamless customer experience, including integration with easyJet’s app and a completely new website. The new website also features advanced mapping technology, meaning customers can explore a city or resort or start to plan their trip before they book. Key points of interest and walking routes from chosen hotels are highlighted – together with new itinerary guides for a selection of cities – so that customers can start to make the most of their holiday before they travel. The website also features TripAdvisor ratings, and uses artificial intelligence (AI) to learn and personalise the experience for customers.
Garry Wilson, Chief Executive of easyJet holidays, said: “easyJet has been a pioneer in transforming travel for almost 25 years and we want to bring that to the holidays sector. We know the way people travel is continuously evolving; we know customers want flexibility on when and how they holiday; we know customers want flexibility on when and how they holiday; we know they want to be able to easily pick a hotel to suit their needs and we know they want a hassle-free booking process. We’re really excited to help meet these needs with the launch of our new modern and relevant holidays business.”
