Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

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

British Airways Holidays has launched a special Club World promotion for travel over the Summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year on some routes to the US, Canada and Mexico.

There are some decent prices here but you need to book by Monday 19th June. The prices are not as good as we saw last year or in February but they are still very good value for what you get.

You can see the deals available with Club World flights here.

The ‘lead in’ flight and hotel offer based on Club World flights is:

New York – £1,299 over Christmas including three nights in a 4* hotel (£1,363 for a 5*)

This price is based on two people sharing.

Other routes included are Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Boston, Oakland (California), Calgary and Mexico City.

The outbound travel dates to these destinations that are included in the sale are:

1st July to 31st August, 21st to 28th November 2017

New York only: 18th December 2017 to 2nd January 2018

Orlando only:  24th August to 12th October 2017

A minimum three night stay is needed and the outbound flight must start within the dates mentioned above.

BA Holidays

As usual with BA Holiday you don’t have to pay in full when booking. Apart from a small deposit, you only need to pay the balance five weeks before departure.

Remember that you also earn a bonus 2 Avios per £1 for booking with BA Holidays on top of the Avios you will earn from the flights and from your credit card.

(One minor downside is that BA Holidays packages do not earn On Business points in BA’s small business loyalty scheme for the flights.)

If you fancy a short break over the summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year, these offers are worth considering. You would also receive 280 tier points which may be a helping hand towards your requalification or promotion for next year.

The BA Holidays Club World promo page is here.

(PS.  In case you missed it, on Wednesday we reported that British Airways has released an extra 10,000 Club World Avios seats for travel over Christmas and New Year.  If you don’t want to pay cash, there may be some good redemption seats now bookable.)

    I would need to start from a regional flight, in Belfast. How would that work? Thanks.

  • Ammar says:

    OT – If you book SPG reward nights with all points, do you have to pay taxes? and do you get breakfast with that OR is it room only?

  • Waribai says:

    OT…Looking to get a new ipad. Don’t need a sim so will pay cash. Any decent discount/points opportunities out there?

    Thanks. I think I might go for the tesco clubcard points

  • Ahmed says:

    Just out of subject, does anyone knows if the lloyds free upgrade voucher need to be used at the avios website ? or can it be used by the BA website? as most of my avios are at the BA! Thanks

    • Rob says:

      Avios, but you can move your points instantly via ‘Combine My Avios’ on either site so it doesn’t matter.

        Thanks Rob

        Previously the only potential downside of having to use Avios.com is loss of Gold extra economy availability, which can be extremely handy for the domestic connection to longhaul – thankfully the introduction of CE within the UK seems to have helped a bit in that regard, although I still wish they’d take a bmi approach and open up a redemption on the connection if longhaul segment has availability!
