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

Dream Tickets British Airways Durban

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.

    OT does a plat supp application create a credit check? Thanks.

    • Never has for me

    • Charlieface says:

      Credit check is only for someone applying for credit, which this is not. It usually triggers an identity check which won’t show up on credit report

  2. Rob, any idea whether the Marriott promotion will count for existing bookings?

  3. OT: Want to book a hotel for my OH for a weekend using my reward points. Are there any chains who are particularly amenable / cause particular trouble around this? Not hugely concerned which chain I use, only that I find somewhere nice that doesn’t cause her any trouble.

  4. Just tried to book my UK Spg Amex free night certificate but cant use is as its saying it will be past the exp date .

    I thought you could use it as long as it was still valid at point of booking is this not the case ?

  5. Virgin points.
    Can you transfer between accounts?

    • only if gold, but can pay for whole sectors of a booking from different accounts.

      • Thank you Mark.
        So if I have enough for redemption for me and OH has enough for her, can we link bookings if we make them separately?

        • Why would you need to do that? The only reason to do this on BA is free seat selection for all but that isn’t an issue with VS.

          Only reason would be if you did 2 x oneways to North America when a return would be cheaper in taxes, in which case ringing to book by pooling the miles is cheaper.

          My understanding is that you don’t even need complete sectors in each account, but don’t quote me on that.

        • my latest booking said there has to be enough for a whole sector form each account but I believe some people have spoken to CSA who will pull the number of miles from any account to make the booking so depends who you get.

        • TGLoyalty says:

          Still think a booking with more than 1 person is less likely to be bumped but also less likely to be upgraded I guess.

    • No, but if both people are travelling the call centre will mix and match between accounts.

  6. PAYE
    Anyway to earn points by paying it?

  7. Is there an expiry on Hilton points? Expecting a baby soon so wondering if it’s worth buying the points to save up for a future trip to the Maldives.
    With the caveat that points could change, Is it still worth me maxing the offer just for me now, which is 100%?

    • How far in the future? I wouldn’t buy now for a speculative redemption in a few years’ time. 100% bonus is not that uncommon. There could be further devaluations etc. Keep the cash.

      • Probably around 2 years or so.
        Thanks, have kept the cash and will keep an eye out for future

    • There is an expiry, yes. I think it’s 1 year, but can be refreshed by e.g. buying a handful of points.

      • Thanks – decided to keep the cash for now as it will be probably a couple of years out.

  8. Just checking in, saying hello, from the new Malaysian Golden 1st Lounge, on our way home. Didn’t go to CX lounge. It really is a huge improvement on the old lounge. And very silent as reported.
    On the good old A380, very sad to see them go. Great use of our 241. Trying to guess who our fellow pax will be in F. What a hoot…hope for good weather in the morning in T5.

    • Are BA operating an a380 to KUL? A bit confused by reference to 241 as I thought at first you were referring to MAS.

    • She was in Hong Kong, and is currently flying back on a BA A380.

      KUL is currently operated by a 789 on BA or an A350 on MAS

      • Thanks, now I make sense of it. I thought MAS had put one a380 back on LHR, I guess that was short-lived.

    • Are you using the A380 wifi? I used it on the same route last week.

  9. Double Marriott points question… I have a large reward booking coming up soon. If I book a cheap local room before this stay, will my reward night now count for double points on all the incidentals / room charges? Thanks in advance to anyone who knows.

    • Need to see the T&C’s which won’t be available before 5th. It is PROBABLY OK. However, I can’t believe that your incidentals bill would be so big that you could even begin to justify it.

      If you value a Marriott point at 0.5p and your mattress run is £50, you’d need to earn 10,000 bonus points to break even which would require $1,000 of base spending in the hotel (I think).

      • Thanks Rob. Appreciate the insight. I’ll keep my eyes open for the terms. I have an upcoming stay at Calgary airport before my trip which I’m considering switching to Marriott, should the price justify it, as you point out.

  10. OT: I am a very small spend from hitting my 241. Is it possible to book outbound and return in different travel classes on a voucher? Does aBA IT support it? I.e. out in F return CW

    • Yes

    • Yes, not an issue but must be booked by phone.

      • I’ve done it online many times. The only circumstance I foresee the requirement to call is to mix and match F and Y.

    • I’ve booked out in CE and back in ET online several times, and also booked my upcoming trip to NYC, which is out in F and back in J, online. As Ghengis says, the only issue might be combining F and Y, which you can’t see on the same page!

      You have to call up to book a BA holidays package in different classes but flight only can generally be done online.

      • We had to call in to mix Y and F tho..
        Anna, are you planning to upgrade to F if you get the chance?

  11. @Genghis
    Can you please recommend ryokan and onsen in Kinugawa onsen area? Planning to do the 2 day trip to Nikko and sleeping there, been to Hakone before, I could do it again, but heard this area is famous too.
