If you are a British Airways Gold card holder, you will know that one of the benefits is that you can change redemption bookings for free, without paying the £25 fee.
This means that, because of the way BA calculates the taxes on reward tickets, until midday on Wednesday you can effectively book the £1 Reward Flight Saver fares for the next 355 days!
(Remember, you must be a BA Gold card holder to do this.)
It is very simple:
Step 1: Book a reward flight on ba.com (it must be ba.com because a Gold does not get free changes on avios.com bookings) to one of the eight destinations available with £1 tax. Your booking must be for a flight before May 31st to get the £1 tax offer.
Step 2: Once booked, you can immediately go into ‘Manage My Booking’ and click ‘Change the date / time of my flight’. You can change the flight to any point in the next 355 days. No extra tax will be charged.
