If you are at home now, looking at the grey skies and the evenings drawing in, you may be longing for a holiday to look forward to. I am writing this from Barbados where I flew with British Airways. Just before writing this, I was languishing in a warm crystal clear turquoise sea framed by a fine white sand beach. It may feel like there are not many options for some winter sun, but several of the Caribbean islands are open for visitors with no quarantine on return to the UK.

My view as I type this – Sea Breeze Beach Hotel is available from BA Holidays

The new British Airways Luxury Sale has some great deals whether you want to get away now for some winter sun or are looking in a few month’s time. Despite the current situation, ironically there has never been a better time to book travel for many people. Prices are lower than usual and there is a lot of flexibility when you book with British Airways. As I mentioned in this article, BA is also about to improve their onboard meal service. The starter that I had onboard to Barbados was well up to the usual standards. With the introduction of hot meals again in Club, the onboard food will soon be similar to what we would normally expect. 

My starter in Club World this week

The sale lasts until 3 November 2020.

 

Club World and Club Europe fares

Crane Beach Barbados – The Crane Hotel where I stayed is available through BA Holidays

If you want to escape the gloomy days in winter, the Caribbean is the perfect escape. BA has some great Club World fares in the sale from London to the Caribbean. If you are looking more towards 2021 travel, there are also some good value US fares. It is hoped that once the US election is over, the borders will reopen to Europe. The UK/US governments are currently working together to look at a travel corridor between the UK and the USA, starting with New York.

Closer to home, Madeira has a travel corridor with the UK and also gets 160 tier points return in Club Europe!

  1. Hi Michele, is the deposit on a Holidays booking covered by ‘Book with Confidence’? Found some tempting fares and happy to accept a voucher for the deposit amount if that’s allowed.
