British Airways has launched the last of the three Gatwick flash sales that have been running throughout October.
This final offer has return tickets to many destinations in EuroTraveller for just £60 return. You have until midnight on Thursday to book.
Full details can be found on BA’s Gatwick webpage here.
Here is a summary of the offer:
There are 75,000 discounted one-way economy tickets on offer at £29.99 per flight
These are all ‘hand baggage only’ fares. Suitcases and seat selection, even for elite members, are chargeable.
The routes included are Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bordeaux, Dubrovnik, Edinburgh, Rome, Friedrichshafen, Glasgow, Genoa, Geneva, Innsbruck, Jersey, Naples, Nice, Porto, Pisa, Salzburg, Turin, Venice, Vienna, Valencia and Verona
You must travel between 3rd November 2015 and 30th June 2016. Christmas, February half-term, Easter and the week of the 2nd May Bank Holiday are excluded. Some routes have additional exclusions – the full list is in the T&C’s on this page.
There is clearly no angle here in terms of earning cheap tier points or cheap Avios. However, miles and points aside, there are some excellent deals here if all you want is a cheap weekend break. Use a few hotel points for your accommodation and you could get a trip for peanuts.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 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.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
