easyJet, keen to get some cash in the door, is running a deal for flights over the Winter 2020 season.

It’s a simple deal:

EVERY flight, between 25th October 2020 and 28th February 2021, is £29.99 or less.

This deal ends on Tuesday 31st March.

ALL easyJet flights for Winter 2020 at £29.99 or less

The only ‘catch’ is that not all routes are currently on sale.  You cannot book yet for flights to Germany, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia, Israel and Jordan, so you won’t be flying there for £29.99.

There are some very good deals here if you know where to look, especially around key ski weekends next year.

Book today and – if seats are still available – you’re paying £60 return.

OK, it’s easyJet, so you’re looking at another chunk of cash for seat reservations and checked baggage.  Even with all that, I reckon you can book a family of four – with bags and decent seats – for under £500.  If you were happy to sit at the back of the plane it would be as low as £375 including luggage for four people.

This is excellent pricing for ski holidays.  As you are usually forced to travel Saturday to Saturday to fit around hotel changeover dates, you rarely have much flexibility as to when you fly.

There is, of course, a little bit of credit risk with easyJet at the moment.  In reality, I think the chance of easyJet going bankrupt is low.  In the worst possible scenario – that the airline collapsed by the Summer – you’d still have eight months to book alternative flights and your credit card company would refund you.

For flights priced in Sterling, your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards GoldThis offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

    If anyone tells you what will happen in September or beyond, they are making it up. The truth is, nobody knows what happens beyond the next two months.

    There are simply so many variables and possible outcomes beyond that point.

  • Riccatti says:

    Apparently, ski resorts were hotbeds for COVID-19 infection, from where it spread when people returned to their communities.

    It was easy to disregard some cough and temperature symptoms after skiing.

  • Bagoly says:

    Looking from the other end (and accepting that some of these numbers are not yet known)
    If in the UK there will be 12 hospitals each with 4,000 beds like Excel, plus 12,000 from existing facilities that’s 60,000 beds.
    60M population * 90% exposed * 5% needing ICU * average occupancy 2 weeks = 6M ICU bed weeks.
    6M / 60,000 = 100 weeks.

    So if flattening is going to work….

    • TGLoyalty says:

      The real unknown is how many people have had it and suffered no or mild symptoms. We may already have 10-20% of the population with at least some short term immunity, which would put the 5% in ICU rate far lower.

      Until there’s a reliable antibodies test it’s hard to find that answer (it wouldn’t take the 3m tests to get a large enough sample to be able to model the whole country)

      • Lady London says:

        Germany found this. Their overall rate is close to 1%. They are including in their testing not just those who already present with symptoms or their direct contacts. This gives me hope as other countries figures currently look very skewed due to them only testing people with an excellent chance of being infected and no others.

        • Nick_C says:

          I think we should test the whole cabinet, purely for the data. See how many people have caught the virus and how many actually have symptoms. Our infection rate is meaningless because testing has been sporadic. The only trustworthy statistic is mortality per capita.

    • Ken says:

      Intensive care is not simply beds and kit like ventilators. It’s care. In normal circumstances that means 1 nurse per patient. Who knows what the mortality will be like if those who go into ICU, but it doesn’t look great so far and that’s with full care in hospitals with all the associated back up. Instead we will have at best 1 nurse for 6 patients and a cobbled together ventilator that will work but not to the same standard as a proper one.
      I wouldn’t be getting my hopes up if I ended up in one.

      Sadly I suspect that these field hospitals will be palliative care places with large morgues attached, and may help keep some of the Covid patients out of normal hospitals (a slim hope).

    • Adrian says:

      Bagoly, you missed a step out, 90% exposed, but only 20% infected and then 5% of that 20% needing hospitalisation, this changes the maths considerably.

      • Lady London says:

        @Adrian that calculates down very close to the figures the Germans are reporting.

  • Alex Sm says:

    OT but concerns all airlines:

    Can anyone suggest a link to reputable source (official document) which clearly states that an airline must pay a full refund in cash if the flight is cancelled by the airline? Swiss is trying to avoid this by any means and issue a voucher instead which I don’t want.

    • Rob says:

      The official EC261 documentation is online.

    • Lady London says:

      @Alex Sm you can download the official EU pdf for this.

      Google “EU commission notice passenger rights March 2020”. The official EU notice to remind airlines of passengers right to refund was issued on 18th March. This is the official source.

      Switzerland is signed up to this as are other EEA countries and the EU.

      • Lady London says:

        *will give you an official pdf to download from the EU that confirms your right to a refund.

      • Alex Sm says:

        Thanks both! Will look it up – this is what I thought is the right document but then was confused by Which? advice which is a bit ambiguous

        • Lady London says:

          How was the Which? advice ambiguous?

          Fyi I was alerted to that official document by another website that is very reliable on official things. Out of courtesy to Rob I didn’t post it from there but can assure you this will be the correct document.

  • Jake says:

    Sadly they have marked flights for peak dates such as Feb half term as sold out – despite there being availability if you search via easyJet holidays…

  • Rose says:

    Really don’t get paying for seats. Tax on the stupid if you ask me.

  • paul says:

    surely any travel booked now in the midst of this crisis would not be covered for Covid-19. It’s a known risk and may or may not be around for many months to come. The fares are great but there is no guarantee they will operate and none that Easy Jet will still be around. Even if they do and are will it be safe and are you covered?

    • Freddy says:

      I booked flights for 5 people for Lanzarote in October half term for £200 rather than the £2000 odd normally. I have my doubts as to whether we will be able to go but worth a punt at that price. These got released a while ago so the good dates are probably long gone

  • Seamus O'Leary says:

    Latest from Easyjet via Sky News.

    “This crisis may result in the insolvency of easyJet PLC and if it transpires that a single penny from the company has been paid to Airbus between the grounding of the fleet and the date of the insolvency or any equity-raising which would prevent insolvency, I will personally sue all the easyJet directors for gross negligence and for defrauding easyJet’s creditors with the favouring of one creditor (Airbus with dubious rights to these monies) over all others.”

    Sir Stelios’s declaration of war on the easyJet board comes just days after he received a £60m dividend payment from the airline.

    • Lady London says:

      Kinda looks similar to a poison share…I am not sure what the correct teminology is. But easyJet stakeholders and their advisers who look ‘attacked’ here, may actually be ‘in on it’ and this may be a Corporate Finance-advised step. The Press often being used by CF advisers in this way.
