New BA Holidays promo – NYC and other routes from £1,299 Club World including hotel!

British Airways Holidays has launched a special Club World promotion for travel over the Summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year on core routes to the US and Middle East.

There are some decent prices here but you need to book by Monday.  The prices are not as good as we saw last year but that is a moot point – they remain good value for what you get.

Click here to take a look at some of the deals available with Club World flights.

These are the ‘lead in’ flight and hotel offers based on Club World flights:

New York – £1,299 over Christmas including three nights in a 4* hotel

Boston – £1,499 over Christmas including three nights in a 4* hotel

Abu Dhabi – £1,199 over May – September including three nights in a 4* hotel

These prices are based on two people sharing.

Other routes included are Muscat, Dubai, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Las Vegas, Calgary, Los Angeles and Oakland.

The travel dates included are:

USA / Calgary – 1st July to 31st August, 21st to 28th November, 18th December to 2nd January

Middle East – 1st May to 30th September

A minimum three night stay is needed, with the exception of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland and Calgary which must include a Saturday night.

BA Holidays

As usual 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.

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 the summer, Thanksgiving, 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.

The BA Holidays Club World promo page is here.

  1. If Anon carries on reading this from his sun lounger he might be interested in this thread on Flyertalk.

    One of the posters appears to have successfully claimed the monetary value of the avios represented by the companion voucher when put in the same position by BA.

  2. I could have been putting £10k on a 5% cashback card or in the cash of the non-premium version of the BA Amex, £20k on a cashback card. Therefore the 2-4-1 voucher & Avios on that amount of spend HAVE cost me £500 – £1000 in cashback I could have received elsewhere. There’s a cost.
    Then there’s the card fee of course.
    BA need a serious slap for this one.

    I think that we all understand that flights & cabins get oversold (although it is a disgrace – I wouldn’t like to see taxi companies do it for example and leaving people stranded !!) but to deliberately manipulate the situation so that theyu needn’t pay any compensation is an utter disgrace.
    I certainly wouldn’t actually want any financial compensation anyway, just a flight later that day or next day in the class I booked with them or an equivalent airline. Hell, if they knowingly oversold then they should have to book you a private jet if all else fails. They’d stop doing it then !!

  3. I think, as someone suggestion previously, the takeaway advice for those of us looking to utilise a 2-4-1 anytime soon is TAKE A SCREENSHOT OF THE CASH PRICE OF THE TICKETS TOO AT TIME OF BOOKING.

    Doesn’t solve the problem but gives you a figure to work from with BA & a legal team.
