British Airways Holidays has launched a special Club World and Club Europe flash sale.
There are some decent prices here but you need to book by Monday 16th April. The headline prices may seem a little higher than the last time they ran this offer, but they do seem to be including additional hotel nights – often four instead of three.
For long-haul, 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 – £1,382 in Winter including four nights in a 4* hotel (£1,476 in Summer)
Abu Dhabi – £1,299 including three nights in a 4* hotel (seven nights from £1,393)
Toronto – £1,532 including four nights in a 4* hotel
These prices are based on two people sharing.
Many other routes are available. The BA Holidays Club World promo page is here.
And short-haul deals too
Headline five-star hotel deals include:
Seville – Club Europe flights and three nights in a five-star hotel from £302
Alicante – Club Europe flights and two nights in a five-star hotel from £313
Algarve / Faro – Club Europe flights and four nights in a five-star hotel from £351
Lisbon – Club Europe flights and two nights in a five-star hotel from £423
Malta – Club Europe flights and three nights in a five-star hotel from £450
Again, all prices are per person based on two travelling.
Many other destinations are available, as are options featuring cheaper hotels.
Get special BA Holidays booking benefits
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 1 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 for the flights in BA’s small business loyalty scheme, but this will only impact a few HFP readers. You WILL earn Avios and tier points on the flight as usual.
The BA Holidays home page is here if you want to find out more.
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.
