British Airways holidays have some very generous deals available on their website, albeit some requiring you to fly in the next few weeks. You can see more details here. Booking a British Airways holiday is a good earner for Avios versus buying hotel and flight separately as not only do you get your normal avios from the flight you will also receive 2 Avios per £1 for your total spend.

20 December – 22 December

The hotels for the cheapest prices tend to be near the theme parks, airport or in areas that aren’t right in the centre of the tourist areas. You will have to spend a bit more to get a centrally located hotel.
Prices are from £1919 for 3 nights in the 4* Sheraton . Toronto is good place for a weekend break although perhaps
not as vibrant as New York. It has a great restaurant scene with innovative Canadian focussed cuisine and is a great destination for a foodie. If you don’t fancy a city break how about going to the beautiful Niagara on the lake instead? This is in the heart of Niagara wine-producing area which you may associate only with ice wine. Although we rarely see them in the UK they are producing some very high quality wines and I was really impressed when I was there in August. They produce everything from Pinot Gris to Merlot and sparking wine as well as amazing ice wines. Niagara on the lake is about 15-20 minutes drive from the falls and about 1 hour 15 minutes from Toronto airport.
