I wrote yesterday about the amazing £150 Club Europe sale that British Airways is running for just 48 hours.
It ends at midnight tonight, Wednesday.
There are some incredible deals, such as Malta or Marrakech for £150 return and 160 tier points.
I wrote the article yesterday at 6am and so didn’t have much time to play around with the actual fares themselves. What I didn’t spot at the time is that these prices are also valid in conjunction with BA Holidays.
What I mean is that you can get a deal like this:
Yes, that is three nights in a four-star hotel in Malta plus business class flights on British Airways for just £169 per person, based on two sharing. The hotel costs you £6 per night per person on top of the £150 cost of the flight!
Or, assuming you would use points for a hotel, why not throw in a car?
Yes, you read that correctly. In this example, you only pay an extra £5.50 (£1.80 per day) to add a car to your £150 Club Europe flight to Malta.
Similar deals are available to other destinations in the sale. Take a look at this page on ba.com for the £150 sale rules and travel dates and then see what you can find.
Remember that you need to book by midnight tonight, Wednesday.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (August 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.
