With Jet2holidays, you can take a break for as long as you like and tailor your holiday to your time and budget. So, whether you’re squeezing in a long weekend or have oodles of time on your hands, you can find the perfect duration for you.
We’ve got flights departing daily from our nine UK bases and more than 70 destinations to choose from. The question is, where’s best to venture to during your time off? Here’s a little food for thought…
2 nights in Rome
Trust us, Rome is the ultimate place to escape when you’ve got two nights to play with. Having stood proudly for thousands of years, the charming Italian capital is an enduring corker. Pack your comfy shoes, as there’s plenty of wandering in store here.
This city is like an open-air museum and the epic Colosseum is one of many mind-blowing sights you’ll stumble across. The Pantheon, Roman Forum and St Peter’s Basilica dazzle too. And while Rome’s rich history make it a city break magnet, there’s much more to it than its ancient attractions. If the way to your heart is through your stomach, you’ll likely fall head over heels here. Creamy cacio e pepe pasta, crispy pizza slices and deep-fried artichokes will all contend for your affection. As will the quaint streets.
Top tip: Sneak in an extra night away and make it a 3-night trip when you tag a break to Rome onto Easter bank holiday weekend, from 10 - 13 April 2020.
5 nights in the Costa Brava
This slice of Spanish coastline extends all the way to France, providing plenty of things to do during a five-night getaway. The green-tinged Costa Brava has a wildly-beautiful landscape to discover, geared up for keen walkers and cyclists. Paths snake along the unspoiled coastline and hillsides are blanketed in pine trees, so breathe in and fill your lungs with fresh air.
Base yourself in Tossa de Mar, a pretty walled town flanked by three sandy beaches. This picturesque plot is well placed for day trips, with the medieval city of Girona just 45-minutes away. Here, you can uncover Gothic churches and intriguing museums among twisting cobbled lanes.
Top tip: Book over the spring bank holiday, 25 May 2020, and take one less day annual leave.
9 nights in Montenegro
Montenegro is having a moment. This teeny nation, stretched along the Adriatic, is ushering in a new era and you’ll want to spend nine nights taking it all in.
Twinkling Kotor Bay should be chief among the places you visit while holidaying here. Brooding mountains create a dramatic backdrop, contrasting starkly against Old Town Kotor’s terracotta-topped houses and dense leafy trees. Further south, Budva is equally quaint, with dinky churches and pavement cafés hemmed in by narrow passageways. However, if you’re looking to go off grid, set your sights on Durmitor National Park.
Top tip: Fly out on Thursday 7 May 2020 and you'll only have to take six days of annual leave for a nine-night getaway, thanks to the early May bank holiday!
11 nights in Malta
Put the magical island of Malta on your radar. This Mediterranean melting pot is an unsung hero, with an astonishing list of things to do during an 11-night break.
Alternate between days unwinding on the coast with those of exploration. Mellieħa Bay is a Blue Flag beauty, with biscuit-hued sand and gleaming turquoise waters, while the Blue Lagoon of Comino is an intensely-blue sheltered cove perfect for snorkelling.
Prepare for a history lesson and a half with an outing to stunning Valletta. Malta’s capital is brimming with centuries-old attractions – wander through its walls to find golden St John’s Co-Cathedral, the lavish Grand Master’s Palace and pretty Upper Barrakka Gardens. Further inland, Mdina is something out of a fairytale. It’s hard not to walk open-mouthed around this fortified city, where a line-up of architecture from a mish-mash of centuries dazzles.
17 nights in the Dubrovnik Area
Touted as one of Europe’s best cities, Dubrovnik is Croatia’s star attraction. And as soon as you step foot into the fortified city, you can see why. As you wander the medieval labyrinth of streets in the Old Town, photogenic palaces, gates and churches unfold before your eyes in spectacular style.
But the city itself isn’t the only appeal of the Dubrovnik Area, especially when you’ve got more than a fortnight to explore. Mljet Island is cloaked in forest and the perfect respite to the busy mainland. Head to the national park on its west side for secluded beaches galore. Lokrum Island is another fave spot to discover and just a ferry ride away. Swimming spots are renowned here for their tranquil waters, but the real draw is the astonishing Benedictine Monastery.
Top tip: Book your holiday over the summer bank holiday, 31 August 2020, and you'll squeeze more out of your annual leave.
21 nights in Tenerife
Jet off to this far-flung island in the Atlantic if you’ve got three weeks’ worth of holiday to enjoy. Tenerife’s famed for its lively resorts and sweeping beaches but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find there’s much more to it.
Much of Mother Nature’s sparkle can be discovered here. In the north, it’s the spellbinding Anaga Mountains. Hike among its green-tinged valleys and stop off at cute villages along the way. You can also spend time exploring Teide National Park, dominated by Spain’s highest Peak, Mount Teide. This volcanic landscape provides quite the otherworldly experience. In between, tick off Siam Park, colonial La Laguna and El Medano Beach, among many other attractions in Tenerife.
