They are offering a special £100 discount on Club Europe flights this Autumn. You don’t, though, need to rent an Avis car to take advantage – the code is for anyone.
The deal is very simple. Simply use British Airways promotional code AVIS0913ZH during the booking process at ba.com.
Here is a summary of the terms and conditions:
You must book on or before 14th October
Your outbound flight must be before 31st March 2014
You must book a return flight with both legs in Club Europe
The fare before discount must be at least £350 per person
The discount is valid for up to 9 people per booking
Not valid on CityFlyer (London City flights), codeshares, domestic flights etc
Travel must start and end in the UK
Code does not work on ‘flight and hotel’ or ‘flight and car’ packages
You can also book by phone on 0844 493 0 787. If you are looking at a ticket priced between £251 and £350 which does not qualify for the discount, it is possible that – if you call – they can book one leg into a more expensive category of ticket (still Club Europe, but a different fare level).
This could tip you over the £350 level and thus make your ticket cheaper than it would be otherwise.
