Earlier I looked at the great flights deals in the sale and the free lounge access. Now let’s take a look at the holidays and other offers. I am only booking holidays currently rather than flight only. This has advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages is that you need to cancel much further in advance for the book with confidence policy and also BA Holidays are even harder to get hold of than BA usually! The advantages are that you only need to pay a low deposit until three weeks before your holiday, plus you get 1 extra Avios per £1 spent. 

50% extra Avios

The usual offer for an extra 50% Avios when you buy or gift Avios is back when you buy before 30 September 2020. Buy between 1,000 to 200,000 Avios during the offer period to get between 1,500 to 300,000 Avios. With prices in the sale so low, I would normally say don’t buy them. However, Avios do give you more flexibility to get a total refund minus £35pp up to 24 hours before which is very useful in the current climate. 

You can find the purchase page here.

 

Part pay with Avios

Dubai

As part of the September Sale, there are also a number of tempting Avios part payment deals. These include New York return flights for £179 plus 25,000 Avios, and Los Angeles return for £209 plus 32,000 Avios. As always, customers can choose to reduce the cost of a commercial flight through Avios part payment, while still collecting Avios with their booking. Customers can also book a return reward flight to Venice for £1 plus 29,000 Avios, or New York or Dubai for £100 plus 50,000 Avios. Normally part payment with Avios is not a great idea as it is worse value than paying with Avios and less flexible. However, in economy with the current book with confidence policy, these can make more sense.
