Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New British Airways First Class 2-4-1 ‘Dream Tickets’ flight deals launched to India and Chile

Last month British Airways launched ‘Dream Tickets’.  This is a new 2-4-1 promotion for First Class. 

The opening offer was for Cape Town.  It was hugely successful, judging by the number of readers who told me they had booked.

Three new routes are now bookable. 

Take a look at the Dream Tickets home page here.

Santiago British Airways First Class

Here are the new destinations on offer:

New Delhi and Mumbai

£4,298 for two people to Mumbai in First Class

£4,998 for two people to Delhi in First Class

Book by 6th August, travel between 1st August 2018 and 15 July 2019.  November travel to Delhi is excluded. 


£5,499 for two people in First Class

Book by 6th August, travel between October 2018 and January 2019, excluding 15 December 2018 to 2 January 2019


Instead, go here to the BA Holidays premium holidays site.  Book your First Class flights and throw in a car rental or cheap hotel instead.  You should see a substantial fall in what you pay.  Far cheaper than just booking the flight on its own ….  When the Cape Town offer was running, the price dropped by £200 per person and you got the car as well.

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 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.
