Until 10th July, British Airways Holidays (click here) is offering extra discounts on all packages:
- £25 extra discount on Flight + Car holidays to any destination for bookings with a min spend of £600
- £50 extra discount on Flight + Hotel/Car holidays to any destination for bookings with a min spend of £1,250
- £100 extra discount on Flight + Hotel/Car holidays to any destination for bookings with a min spend of £2,500
As you saw above, BA Holidays can often be cheaper via ‘flight and car’ or ‘flight and hotel’ than just booking a flight on its own, especially in premium cabins. Premium offers can be found 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.
