Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Good British Airways Club World business class fares launched for Autumn and Winter travel

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

British Airways has launched some attractive Club World fares to the US and Canada for Autumn and Winter travel.  These are not being advertised by BA as far as I can see, but they are out there and they are bookable via ba.com.

Here are the headline fares:

New York £1319
Florida (primarily Miami) from £1335
Boston £1345
Toronto £1411
San Francisco £1419
Las Vegas £1449
Los Angeles £1449
Vancouver £1459

Good Club World sale deals

The fares are valid for departures on selected dates between 28th October and 14th February 2019.  A Saturday night stay is required (it may even be 7 days depending on route).  The offer is bookable until 28th February.

American Airlines flights are bookable as well as British Airways ones.  You should check which plane type is being used but in many cases you will get a superior seat to Club World.  You receive the same Avios and tier points irrespective of which airline you choose.   Remember that inbound AA flights do not qualify for EU261 compensation if delayed.

“Part Pay With Avios” is also available.  Details of how that works are on ba.com here.

Do not book until you have also checked out BA Holidays pricing, booked as a ‘flight and hotel’ or ‘flight and car’.  This often works out even cheaper or can get you a hotel for a nominal extra sum per night.  The BA Holidays Club World page is here.

To maximise your miles when paying, your best bet is the British Airways American Express Premium Plus card which earns double Avios (3 per £1) when you book at ba.com or via BA Holidays.  You do not get double Avios if you book with the free British Airways American Express card

Another option is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.
