£20 off £400 British Airways or Virgin ticket with Opodo

Opodo is currently advertising a £20 discount code for British Airways or Virgin Atlantic flights over £400.

You must book by 31st December using discount code OPODO20.


There are no other BA or Virgin discounts at present for long-hauls from Heathrow, so this is as good as it gets.

Note that BA flights booked through Opodo incur an £3.70 per person, per segment (ie £7.40 per person return) booking fee.  There is no fee for booking Virgin Atlantic flights as far as I can see, so this is a far better deal when booking with them.

There is a credit card fee of 2.5% (so using an Amex will cost more than if booking via ba.com – debit cards are free, however).

Don’t forget the two hotels sales currently running as well – 33% off Hilton weekend nights for the whole of 2014 and 30% off Radisson / 50% off Park Inn for weekends until August 2014.

  1. If you’ve still got access to a UK bank account then I’d have thought you’d have been OK as you could still receive the payment out via BACS.

  2. Yes, you can open an account and have it pay into your UK bank account.

    They do look at IP addresses, though – it is possible you may need to use an IP anonymiser (found online easily enough) to fool them into thinking your initial registration login is from the UK.

    I hope they check the IP just for registration, as I don’t want to use an anonymiser when I buy something. The one time I used one when paying, I had my PayPal account blocked. (I did not lose any money, but the account is blocked forever).
