Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Last chance to book in the British Airways Club World and Club Europe sale

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

This is a final warning that tomorrow is the last day to book for BA’s latest business class sale which covers a wide range of destinations in Club Europe, First and Club World.

The most impressive part of the sale is NOT the discounts, which have been more generous.  It is the booking period, which effectively lets you lock in a sale price for trips over the next 12 months.   As well as booking for Easter, you can lock in Summer, October half term and Christmas as well.

Caribbean, Las Vegas, Orlando, Tampa, Mauritius – now to 15 February 2015

    Club to Delhi and mum in summer is less than £1100

  • Alan says:

    Ex-DUB fares are looking quite nice in what is presumably a similar sale (also ends Tues night) – £1,350 or so to San Diego, £1,750 to Hawaii – all on US Airways but booked as AA flights and as long as post-31/3 these will be OW flights and eligible for TPs/Avios.

    Bah just found out you can use 3V cards to pay on BA.com found out last night. TBH, that would have clinched it for me. Just my luck that I only realised the sale ending time this morning when its all finished.

    Out of interest how often do BA run these promotions?
