If a city break to Lisbon has always been on your travel wishlist then you may want to check out Jet.com and Jet2holidays’ new offerings.
The travel giants are launching new flights and holidays to the Portuguese capital from September 2021, with departures from both Manchester and Birmingham airports.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said in a statement that the move comes after “feedback from customers and independent travel agents is telling us that holidaymakers are wanting to plan and book future getaways this year”.
Although the holidays are launching from September you can already book flights on Jet2.com and packages on Jet2holidays.com, with Lisbon city breaks throughout summer and autumn 2022 also available to book.
There’s no denying that Lisbon has plenty to offer for a fun city break; historic landmarks, fascinating museums, brilliant restaurants and heaps of charming shops. (The city also happens to be one of our top picks of the best places in Portugal to visit!).
It’s also worth noting that Jet2 is currently offering 10% off all flights as part of a sale that runs through to March 1. If you are after package holiday deals, Jet2holidays has £100pp discounts to plenty of popular destinations including the Balearic Islands, Greek Islands and Spain, with prices from £351pp.
At the time of writing, the Foreign Office advises against non-essential travel to Portugal so always check the latest FCDO Portugal advice before planning, booking and going on a trip.
Meanwhile England, Scotland and Wales are all under national lockdowns which include bans on international travel. Although there are some legally permitted exceptions to this ban, a holiday will not fall under these. England’s third national lockdown is currently expected to last through to mid-February.
Restrictions can change but there’s no guarantee so ultimately the choice to book now is up to you.
