Part of the Channel Islands, located just off the coast of Normandy, a Jersey holiday offers a distinctly trans-continental experience. Despite English being the official language of Jersey, many other things about the island are resolutely French; including the marvellous beaches and weather. At Co-op Travel we offer cheap holidays to Jersey both in and out of season.
The Bailiwick of Jersey is the largest of the Channel Isles and, like Guernsey, has been under the protection of the British Crown since 1066. With hot Mediterranean summers, mild winter temperatures and low annual rainfall, Jersey package holidays are a popular option at any time of year, with a year-round calendar of events. During the summer months, bargain holidays to Jersey are a popular choice for families, who can enjoy spacious, sandy beaches, clean, safe swimming waters and the annual Festival of the Flowers. In autumn, people book Jersey holidays for the Tennerfest – a food festival celebrating the fusion of English and French flavours which describes Jersey cuisine.
The most popular resort for last-minute Jersey holidays is St Helier, the capital, on the sunny south coast. Hotel accommodation in Jersey ranges from luxury spa resorts to small, intimate boutiques and family-run guesthouses. Self-catering accommodation is also available in apartments, villas and cottages across the island. When it comes to late deals, Jersey allows endless flexibility of choice.
Jersey package holidays offer something for everyone; Jersey Zoo, the German War Tunnels, Mont Orgueil Castle and a range of other attractions. A walk through the pretty lanes will show fascinating archaeological sites charting 8000 years of history. However, the main reason to book cheap Jersey holidays is for the beaches. In the south, St Aubin’s and St Lawrence offer broad sweeps of clean white sand and a wide range of watersports, while to the north are fascinating rock pools and hidden inlets. Gorey beach, in the south-east, is a favourite with young families.

Key information: Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands despite being smaller than greater London at only 45 square miles. Jersey has been an island for 8,000 years and is divided into 12 parishes. Jersey has a population of just over 87,000 residents, only around half of which were born there, which goes to prove how much people enjoy being in Jersey.
The ideal time to go: Jersey holidays are enjoyable year-round, it’s all about preference. Of course, if you like a sunny holiday then summer is the best time for you to take your Jersey holiday. However, it might be a good option for some to visit Jersey out of season, since there are far fewer tourists and the weather is still rather mild during winter.
Weather: Jersey’s climate is warmer and dryer than that of the UK. They experience nice hot summers and cool but mild winters, however, due to being such an exposed island in the north Atlantic, the weather in Jersey can still be pretty unpredictable, so if you take your Jersey holiday during winter, there is a possibility of rainstorms, wind and fog.
Flight Time: Direct flights to Jersey from the UK take roughly an hour.
Time Difference: Same as UK time.
Currency: Jersey uses GBP Sterling (£) as well as their own Jersey Pounds.
Fun fact: In Jersey, during the fishing season of August-September, men are banned from knitting.
Top tip: There are no immigration controls between the UK and Jersey, so you’re not required to take your passport with you on your Jersey holiday. We recommend using a cheaper form of photo ID if you have it, such as a provisional driving licence or photo card, this is just less risky as it won’t cost as much if you lose it.
Direct holiday flights to Jersey are available at airports all over the UK. The flights tend to be very cheap and affordable all year round. You should find it easy to book a flight to Jersey at any time of year, so timing should never be an issue with this holiday destination.

Sitting directly across the bay from its larger neighbour, St Helier, St Aubin's harbour was once renowned as a centre for piracy on the island. An ironic twist, when it is considered that the town gets its name from a French bishop, who later became the patron saint and protector of those at risk of piracy.
A large parish on the south-western tip of Jersey, St Brelade is named after the 6th century saint St Branwalader, said to have been the son of a Cornish king.
He gives his name to a parish which boasts one of the most popular and picturesque bays in Jersey which has become home to Jersey's busiest resort.
Situated in a sheltered inlet on Jersey's southern shore, St Helier is the island's main port and capital, and benefits from direct sailings from Portsmouth. Since TV detective Bergerac put the island on the map (again) a couple of decades ago, it has been revitalised as a holiday destination.
Stood at Guernsey's south-eastern tip, St Martin lies south-west of the island's capital, St Peter Port, and stands proudly as one of its highest parishes. Steep, rocky cliffs tumble down to some spectacular beaches, however, which are well worth taking the trouble to discover.
Sited in a picturesque, steep-sided valley, and renowned as the only village on the island with two coastlines, St Peter makes an ideal base for package holidays to Jersey. Inland from the coast, the valley contains a wide variety of shops and supermarkets, and even its own real ale brewery, named Tipsy Toad, whose owners now run a successful pub of the same name in the town.
