British Airways has added some additional Caribbean discounts to the current sale, for Autumn travel.
All are priced at £1,399 return. The destinations included are:
- Bridgetown / Barbados
- Port of Spain
- St Kitts
- St Lucia
You need to travel out between 18th August and 2nd October, returning by 9th October.
Clearly this is hurricane season in some parts of the Caribbean, but the risk varies sharply by island so do your research. Barbados, for example, has not been hit by a hurricane since 1955.
You should also price up any booking via BA Holidays as well as looking at ‘flight only’, since this could lead to additional savings. You could try a ‘flight and car’ booking if you were determined to book your accomodation separately.
Booking via BA Holidays brings other benefits too – you can just pay a deposit now (the balance is due seven weeks before departure) and you earn 1 extra Avios per £1 spent. Your flights also earn Avios and tier points as usual. The only downside is that your flights will not earn points in the BA On Business small business loyalty scheme.
