EasyJet’s Advent Calendar promises a range of flights and travel benefits.

Here is a list of some of the best and most expensive adult advent calendars on the market this year:

Contents of the calendar include four pairs of return flights for two, including checked baggage, £45 to spend at EasyJet’s onboard bistro, one year of EasyJet Plus membership worth £215 and more.

There are very few restrictions for travellers, but the rules state that flights to Dalaman and Sharm el-Sheikh are excluded, each pair of tickets cannot have a cash value of more than £750 and you cannot split a pair of flights, meaning each booking has to include two people traveling together.

All vouchers must be redeemed between December 1, 2021 and December 21, 2022.
