Airline Offers ‘Grans Go Free’ Holiday Package So You Can Create Memories with Your Grandparents

Grandparents are irreplaceable in the lives of their grandchildren. They hold a deep and unique bond that nothing, not even the test of time, can stand in the way. However, there never seems to be enough time. Enough time for any of us to really enjoy our lives, or the people in them. Incredibly, one British airline has found a way to combat that. They’re offering grandparents a free way to travel with their families.

Rules and Regulations

The multi-national, low-cost British Airline EasyJet has considered a recent poll by UK residents. Sadly, the poll reflected that more than half of participants wish they could bring grandparents along on family trips or wish they had more time to spend with grandparents. As a result, EasyJet is offering 20 “grans go free” deals between February 1 and February 5. There are a few stipulations, including travel dates between now and October 31st, and the reservation must include a grandchild to qualify for the discount. Moreover, to make the most of the discount provided, travelers must leave from an airport in the UK.

Something else to remember is that the discount applies to only one grandparent per family. Therefore, either Grandma or Grandpa can go for free, but not both. EasyJet has more information on its website for customers to learn about the terms and conditions of this heartwarming deal.

Commenting on the Sweet Deal

EasyJet’s COO Matt Callaghan commented on the packages on the “grans go for free” travel deal. “We’re proud to offer thousands of free kids places, but we feel it’s time to recognize the grandparents,” he explained. This research shows how important grandparent and grandchild relationships are and how much can be learned from making time for them.”

Now, “We’ve launched our ‘grans go free’ offer to tighten these important family relationships and allow travelers to get even better value. In addition to our Big Orange Sale. More families are choosing to holiday with grandparents, recognizing the joy of a getaway is amplified when shared across generations,” Callaghan continued.

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.” He concluded.

Exclusive to Europe

This sweet gesture from the airline company is an offer specific to those in Europe, as it’s a European Airline. However, there are many offers and incentives that U.S.-based Airlines provide to their customers. Additionally, travel sites like Kayak and Expedia provide users with a number of bundles and money-saving options for last-minute flights and hotels, as well as car rentals.

Grandparents are people deeply cherished by their families. Now, with this sweet deal, lucky qualifiers have a chance to create even more lifelong memories together.
