This weekend – you need to book by Monday night – British Airways is running special deals on ‘luxury European beach holidays’.
Full details are here. These are package offers consisting of Club Europe flights and a stay in a four or five star hotel.
Given the usual cost of Club Europe flights, pricing looks good.
Based on travel in September, headline prices include:
Algarve – 7 nights from £388 per person
Malaga – 7 nights from £423 per person
Sardinia – 7 nights from £439 per person
Bari – 7 nights from £439 per person
Nice – 7 nights from £473 per person
Ibiza – 7 nights from £477 per person
There are also ‘last minute’ packages available for travel in June as well as a selection of ‘all inclusive’ packages for September.
Remember that, as this is a BA Holidays booking, you don’t need to pay the full balance now. You can simply pay a deposit and settle the balance nearer departure. Flights booked via BA Holidays will earn the usual Avios and tier points, although they do not earn credit in the On Business small business scheme.
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.
