EasyJet to introduce ‘grans go free’ places on holidays to Europe

by Staff

An airline is offering families the chance to bring their grans or grandpas along for free in a new deal. EasyJet is launching ‘Grans Go Free’ in a twist on the usual ‘Kids Go Free’ offer to destinations including Spain, Greece and Italy..

In the offer, seniors will be able to travel free of charge on family bookings to several European destinations, allowing families to spend more quality time together. It comes after new research revealed 51 per cent of families have never holidayed with their grandparents abroad.




In the poll of 2,000 British adults, over half of those surveyed (56 per cent) say they regret not spending more time with grandparents and 54 per cent say they are hoping to bring them on upcoming holidays. Among those surveyed, 59 per cent said they wanted to spend more time with the older generations in their family, with 57 per cent expressing a desire to make memories with grandparents on a holiday.

The new offer from easyJet Holidays aims to encourage the nation to take a ‘3G’ holiday – the term for getaways with three generations or more, after seeing a rise in this trend. Under the offer one grandparent on the trip will travel free of charge. The offer has been launched in the final week of the easyJet Holidays Big Orange Sale, in which customers can get up to £400 off until Monday.

Matt Callaghan, Chief Operating Officer at easyJet Holidays, said: “We’re proud to offer thousands of free kids places, but we feel it’s time to recognise the Grandparents. This research shows how important grandparent and grandchild relationships are and how much can be learned from making time for them.

“We’ve launched our ‘Grans Go Free’ offer to tighten these important family relationships and allow travellers to get even better value, in addition to our Big Orange Sale.

“More families are choosing to holiday with grandparents, recognising the joy of a getaway is amplified when shared across generations. They are able to create new family memories which each generation will cherish – and for some of the parents, they might even have a free babysitter on hand too.”
