For just a couple of days, until midnight on Monday, British Airways is offering discounts of up to 40% on Club Europe flight and hotel packages.
These are very good deals if you are flexible about when you travel. Prices will be better if you travel as a couple, obviously, although you may find the prices for single occupancy are still worthwhile.
Full details can be found on this special page of ba.com here.
Here are some sample prices. Remember that these are for Club Europe flights which will earn you 80 tier points (160 for Marrakech and some other long routes) and a decent amount of Avios.
Club Europe tickets include lounge access, guaranteed empty middle seat, much improved (although not life changing!) food and drink etc.
Venice – flight + 3 hotel nights – from £189
Rome – flight + 3 hotel nights – from £189
Marrakech – flight + 3 hotel nights – from £179
Amsterdam – flight + 2 hotel nights – from £199
Vienna – flight + 2 hotel nights – from £199
You won’t be getting a five star hotel for these prices. Nothing stops you from not turning up and booking a different hotel using points or cash, of course – your return flight won’t be cancelled.
Here are the headline rules:
Book by midnight on Monday 7th December
Travel must be completed by 14th January 2016
Prices are per person based on two sharing, departing from London
If you have some time off over Christmas and New Year then this could be a great opportunity to get away without flying too far. Full details are on ba.com here.
