All Of The Travel Essentials You'll Need With Jet2 Holidays

*There are PR items/travel essentials from Jet2 in this post. Please read the end of the post for more details.


On my social media lately, all I see is people jetting off on holidays like we did pre-pandemic times. And do you know what? It's been lovely to see, even though I won't be jetting off anywhere anytime soon! Whether you're flying from Bristol, Birmingham or Manchester, Jet2 will help get you to your dream holiday destination. Let's face it, we all deserve a holiday after the last 18 months or so! This year, Jet2 are celebrating their 10th and newest base in the UK - Bristol and from there, there are some popular destinations to travel to. Jet2 also sent me the most beautiful travel essentials hamper to kick off their celebrations!

Jet2 have made it easy for you to choose which destinations are safe to travel to by listing their green, amber and red-listed countries. It's definitely handy in helping you decide where to go on holiday. Plus Jet2 have travel insurance which covers you for Covid and FDCO (if travel advice changes before travelling) which is a huge bonus!


Now, onto the hamper. As I said, Jet2 sent me an array of travel essentials needed for my next holiday! These items may be very handy for you also and give you ideas of what you'll need for your next holiday!

So, get a pen and paper ready and write down these travel essentials that you'll need for your next trip! First of all...

Where am I going?

Struggling as to where you'd like to go? This book from Lonely Planet is my new coffee table book! It has made me see how many wonderful places there are to visit in Europe. You definitely won't be stuck for choice when choosing your next holiday destination!

What can I take to the poolside //  beach?

You always need a little entertainment when sitting by the poolside or on the beach catching those rays. On the technology side of things, why not take these Jet2 earphones to listen to your favourite tunes? A great way to tune out and relax! If you're worried about any technology you own running out of battery (worst nightmare), take this power pack with you. Are you somebody who wants to be able to take photo's underwater? Use this Yosh waterproof phone pouch to do just that! Now, if you're somebody who wants to take a break from technology, read this amazing book by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Malibu Rising. I've just started reading it and it's such a lovely book! Don't forget to pack a beach towel!

What if I'm stuck in my hotel room // villa?

If, for any reason, you can't get out of your hotel room, then use the Jet2 Bluetooth speaker to play some songs in your room rather than sitting there in silence! Feeling hungry? Get some snacks for your room, like these Lays crisps and these Spirit of Zing cocktails to wash them down with!

A beach hat, small bottled cocktails and a packet of crisps.

What sun protection should I use?


When packing to go anywhere, you have to have some SPF cream and after sun. Your skin is going to need it, believe me. Bondi Sands SPF30 sunscreen lotion should be at the top of your list in terms of skincare when abroad. It's water-resistant and has a good SPF. For after you peel yourself away from the sun, use Bondi Sands Aloe Vera after sun to keep your skin hydrated. It smells divine, it has a lovely, not too overpowering smell which is great. 

Two bottles of Bondi Sands. An after sun lotion and sunscreen lotion.

Now I'm home, where can I store my memories?

Memories are what make a holiday, or life for that matter. I love the classic Kodak style photo's, they're just so vintage. Take this disposable camera with you on holiday and snap away! Once home, get them developed and stick them in this gorgeous scrapbook to make the memories last. Once home, scratch off the destination you have just travelled to on this European scratch map. It will be a satisfying feeling I promise you!

What are your thoughts on the Jet2 hamper?

It's such an incredible idea and I love all the travel essentials that are included! Jet2 have really put a lot of thought into this and have come up with essentials that everybody will need. I hope that you love this Jet2 hamper as I do! 


One thing I feel I need to say though is that only travel if you feel comfortable enough and safe enough to do so. Also, please only travel to green listed countries so you don't have the faff of quarantining in a hotel on your arrival home. 


Let me know if any of these travel essentials from Jet2's hamper would make it into your suitcase!


*This is a collaborative post with Jet2 who have sent me this hamper in exchange for a blog post. All travel views are my own. For more information, please read my disclaimer. Thank you for your support as always!

  2. Hi Lucy. What a useful little collection of items to take on holiday. The Power Card sounds intriguing - what sort of devices can you charge with it? Tablets? Kindles?

    1. You can charge pretty much any device, so it would charge a tablet and/or a Kindle!
