Here’s a handful of attractive British Airways Holidays offers to whet your appetite:
If you fancy blowing off some steam and forgetting all about 2020, pandemics and lockdown, there’s no better place than Sin City. A package of Club World flights and four nights in 5* The Venetian Resort is available for as little as £1,619 per person.
For a more relaxing break, beautiful St Lucia fits the bill. Stay at the 4* Starfish St Lucia Resort for seven nights, all-inclusive, with Club World flights in September for £1,609 per person.
For blissful luxury, white sand and turquoise seas you’ll struggle to find better than the Maldives. Flying in Club World, along with speedboat transfers, the BA Holidays Sale is offering a stay at the Bandos Island Resort and Spa with breakfast included for £3,879 per person.
Dubai’s popularity doesn’t look likely to diminish any time soon, especially when BA Holidays are offering 5 nights at the luxurious 5* Fairmont The Palm, along with Club World flights for £1,779 per person. This is a particularly attractive offer as it includes a complimentary upgrade to half-board, and children stay free when sharing a room with two adults.
We were particularly impressed by the cost of a trip to Orlando in Club World. Seven nights at the 5* Rosen Shingle Creek from £1,599 per person, travelling on selected dates between 1st September – 30th September 2021 inclusive is a very attractive price.
Alternatively, if you are keen on something a bit closer to home, seven nights at the 5* Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife travelling on selected dates between 17th – 24th April 2021 inclusive is available from £839 per person. This includes business class (Club Europe) return flights from London.
Earning Avios with BA Holidays
As a reminder, booking a BA Holiday is a great way of earning Avios as you can effectively ‘triple-dip’ your earnings.
Firstly, as an Executive Club Member you can collect 1 bonus Avios for every £1 you spend on flights + hotel and flights + car packages. You also earn from hotels, cars and sightseeing when booked separately through BA Holidays or added to an existing flight booking.
Secondly, if you use a British Airways American Express Premium Plus credit card to pay for your BA Holidays package, you will earn double Avios (3 per £1) from American Express.
And finally, you will also earn Avios from your flights as usual.
