Do not book with Jet2 this weekend !!

Posted 27th Sep 2014
Tried to book a £1400 holiday- for 28 October at Fri 9 am (been a similar price for last 6 weeks) -up and down £20 -came up with error - refreshed site came up with same holiday cost £1740 ! - Jet2 customer service useless " its live pricing " refused to find out why price had suddenly shot up by 25% .Also they fail to realise a similar holiday at the same time, same hotel has suddenly become £300 dearer than competitors !
Found out myself . Jet 2 return flight for 2 to Tenerife from EMids £943.80 !! was about £480 - NB according to booking plan plane half empty ! Thomas Cook (an hour earlier £455.96) -Thomson also an hour earlier £413.96 . It shows where the jump in price came from ! Obviously they have a major pricing glitch this weekend ,not just EMids flights -same from Leeds Manchester Newcastle etc.
Had many holidays /flights with Jet2 used to be impressed , but can I ever trust their pricing again ? Especially as their call centre refuses to acknowledge there is a problem and refuse to look into it ! I expect they'll have it fixed on Monday -meanwhile I'll have booked my holiday elsewhere ,never to return to Jet 2 as I can never trust their pricing or customer service again !

Hope it prevents someone from booking an overpriced holiday . I dare say it'll get sorted Monday when the grown ups get back to work . What a botch up by a company I always used and trusted ! (_;)

I think you will find that "live pricing" is quite common in the low-cost airline world. As seats on the plane sell, the price gradually increases. The idea being that someone who books nine months earlier pays less than someone who books last minute.

Thomson and Thomas Cook still run there own airlines, the pricing system for them is likely to be different.

Personally I would just book the cheapest option.
As others have stated, it's all about your cookies.

The more you refresh, the more the price will go up. Simply put, they think you're desperate so will keep pushing the price.
Sadly as I originally stated ,there is a glitch on the website ! Thanks for the helpful comments , but I had cleared cookies . When the price leapt up by £300 + on Friday it was being booked through a Travel Agent not on my computer . (Have also checked on work computer - the same ). Jet 2 also run their own airline ,which is where the price glitch has come from , Flights to Tenerife now £900 for 2 with Jet2 (plane half empty ) £400 ish with both Thomas Cook and Thomson departing same airport virtually the same time . oO

That's a myth...

The price goes up because of a few things, fuel costs, other people booking seats, time left etc.
I realise all things stated - my theory is that the Jet2 website has defaulted to the top prices (ie Summer Holiday prices) - "The Glitch "- at least on the price of Tenerife flights ..

It will be one of those will they won't they ? They can do it and other sites have done so in the past by manipulating cookies.
Exactly the same with me, JET2 Now the same as the rest they are a joke...tried to book a £3200 7 day trip to Rhodes for me and the boss in the time we got to checkout it had gone up £150.00 phoned useless customer service who said "Live pricing soz" not in those exact words but that's what she really wanted to say...not playing those games Jet2,you are now dead to me after supporting them for years 6 great holidays business flights not any more they have gone down greedy street..they need to be carefull the word on the street is "Jet2 are scammers" when it used to be JET2 they are great" What a shame the green eyed monster of greed has set in firmly in Leeds...besides TUI flys from Manchester we found it a lot better experience.Goodby JET2 RiP.

It goes up because you are interested and the website knows that...its greed...the reason I know that for sure is the daughter of a friend works there and confirmed that's the case, it causes them lots of issues but a lot of people accept it and pay and they are the people they are fishing for. We wont use JET2 again for those reasons..greedy and unpleasant do wht they used to do...Good price for good holiday, if their margins are not good enough put the price up but be honest.
