British Airways Holidays has launched a special Club World promotion for travel over Christmas and New Year on five core routes. There are some great prices here but you need to book by Monday.
These prices would be excellent on a ‘flight only’ basis. When you remember that they come with a hotel thrown in, they are exceptionally cheap. These are the ‘lead in’ flight and hotel offers based on Club World flights:
New York – £1,199 including three nights in a 5* hotel
Boston – £1,149 including three nights in a 4* hotel
Chicago – £1,149 including three nights in a 4* hotel
Washington – £1,149 including three nights in a 4* hotel
Toronto – £1,149 including three nights in a 4* hotel
These prices are based on two people sharing.
One of the New York hotel options, for £1199 is the InterContinental New York Barclay Rob reviewed earlier this year.
Usually with BA Holiday you don’t have to pay in full when booking. Apart from a small deposit, you only need to pay the balance five weeks before departure. This means you can wait until November to pay the full amount.
Remember that you also earn a bonus 2 Avios per £1 for booking with BA Holidays on top of the Avios you will earn from the flights and from your credit card.
(One minor downside is that BA Holidays packages do not earn On Business points in BA’s small business loyalty scheme for the flights.)
If you fancy a short break over Christmas or New Year, these offers are worth considering. You would also receive 280 tier points which may be a helping hand towards your requalification or promotion for next year.
