As part of its occasional ‘Dream Tickets’ promotions, British Airways is running a 2-4-1 offer on Club World tickets to Durban.
Full details are on ba.com here. You must:
book by 1st March
travel between 1st April – 31st May or 1st July – 31st August
both passengers must travel together at all time
The cost will be £2,099 for two tickets which is EXCELLENT value, albeit that you are heading into Winter. Availability is limited so there is no guarantee you will see seats at that price for your chosen dates.
You can use ‘part pay with Avios’ to reduce the cost further but you’re getting well under 1p per point so I don’t recommend it.
If your ultimate destination is Cape Town or Johannesburg, remember that you can redeem Avios for direct Comair flights from Durban to both cities. Full ‘Dream Tickets’ details are on this ba.com page.
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.
