There is no sign of a sale fare yet apart from the 20% flight discount. In the meantime, there are a number of other BA offers:

 

British Airways holidays discounts

Discounts are available across all British Airways Holidays bookings made before midnight on Saturday 28 November 2020. That’s flight + hotel and flight + car holidays in every destination for travel through until mid-November 2021. 

Overall bargains are few and far between outside Europe but there are some. The best way to look is to use either the Holiday Finder or the Complex Holiday Finder. Then search by month and cabin to find the best deals. 

Here is the best of what I have found (these are not necessarily for luxury hotels but include Club Flights). There’s nothing to stop you ditching the flights. You could also try and do a one night only package for the hotel but so far I have not had much success with this working!

  • St Lucia in February 10 nights for £1485
  • Jamaica in April 7 nights for £1270
  • Brazil in February 5 nights for £1577
  • Costa Rica in May 7 nights for £1736
  • Tel Aviv in February for 3 nights £1215
  • Abu Dhabi in April for 4 nights for £1514
  • Boston in September 4 nights for £1385
  • Seattle in September 5 nights for £1575
  • Las Vegas in September 4 nights for £1647

BA is also offering a range of two-night city breaks to Europe for just £99, including to destinations such as on Barcelona, Bilbao, Warsaw, Budapest and Prague. 

As well as BA’s book with confidence policy they also offer a number of other extras for holiday bookings. As well as getting 1 extra Avios per £1 spent, there is the BA HOlidays Customer Promise. These include opting to secure a holiday with a low deposit (from just £75 per person), choosing flexible payments, the choice to delay paying the final balance until three weeks before travel, the cover of ATOL protection and a 24-hour holiday helpline. Any new bookings made during the Black Friday offer period, for travel up to 31 August 2021, can also be changed for free or cancelled for voucher credit. Full details can be found in the British Airways Holidays Customer Promise at ba.com/customer-promise.

For this offer, you must book by 28 November. You can book here.

Mystery bonus when you buy Avios

BA are offering a “mystery bonus” when you buy Avios. The bonus is available for purchases until midnight on 30 November 2020 when you buy or gift any amount between 1,000 to 200,000 Avios.

It seems to be 40-50% with the maximum available to anyone being 50%. 50% is the standard bonus rate which BA give very frequently. So unless you have that I would not buy any miles unless you absolutely have to. 

You can find out what your bonus is by going to this page and logging in. Then you will see the bonus reflected in the prices in the drop-down list.
