The low-cost airline and package provider EasyJet launched Orange Fridays in the run-up to Black Friday. They believe travelers should enjoy great deals throughout the year and not just as a one-off. So every Friday for four weeks, EasyJet offers up to £200 off packages to specific destinations on the website.
NOTE: they reveal the promotional code and destination each Thursday via social media for customers to find and display the code on its website each Friday.
One week it was Spain that gave travelers a saving of £200 with a minimum spend of £2,000 or saving of £100 with a minimum spend of £700. The offer applied to all EasyJet holidays to Spain from any UK airport for travel until 31 March 2024. There were also flight-only deals and a flash sale with 15% off selected flights to Spain.
