British Airways is in the process of launching its Summer sale, and the fares look pretty aggressive – certainly more so than I’ve seen for a couple of years.
There is no simple list at the moment, but if you use the Low Fare Finder tool on the website, select Business / Club and click on the relevant region then you can see what is (theoretically) available. £1,200 return to New York is an exellent deal, as is £1,189 to Calgary and £955 (£955!) to Miami.
Asia and Africa fares are less interesting, unfortunately.
It is also worth checking for sale fares on British Airways out of Europe, especially ex Germany, Netherlands and Rome. You need to factor in the time and money taken to get down there to start your trip, but fare savings and extra Avios and tier points may be enough to swing it for you.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
