UK Long haul winter sun business class from £1276
A number of good deals are emerging for winter 21/22 when it looks like that many countries will have reopened including Thailand.
The best deals I have found are:
- London to Abu Dhabi £1371 – Qatar Airways from October onwards except peak December
- London to Dubai £1276 – QatarAirways from October onwards except peak December
- London to Bangkok £1693 – Qatar Airways from October onwards except peak December
- London to Bangkok £1089 – Gulf Air
- London to Nairobi £1321 – Etihad
You can get some of the fares around £100 cheaper by using an online travel agent. You can compare the cheapest online deals using Skyscanner here.
Cathay Pacific sale
Cathay Pacific has a sale from Manchester which can book until 30 May and gives at least 15% discount on all classes of travel. The fares are for travel between 1 November 2021 and 31 March 2022.
You can find the sale page here.
Singapore Airlines sale
Singapore Airlines also has a sale for business class which must be booked by 5 May 2021 and you can travel up to 30 Nov 2021. Prices are not particularly great and start from £2051 to Bangkok.
You can find the sale page here.
£89 London hotel deal back
I wrote previously about the £89 deal with Radisson for their London Park Plaza hotels. Their own deal has now ended but you can still book the deals by using Travelzoo. Travelzoo is an online discounter a bit like Secret Escapes but they offer more options such as meals and experiences as well as hotels. This deal actually takes you a special page on Radisson so it may actually mean you get your Radisson points and perks.
You can stay between 17 May and 30 September 2021 on the Travelzoo Promotion available at the four-star deluxe hotels Park Plaza County Hall London, Park Plaza London Riverbank, Park Plaza Victoria London and Park Plaza London Waterloo. You need to book by 30 April.
- £89 Room Only inc. VAT in a Superior Room
- Upgraded room types are available
- No pre-payment required
- If due to COVID-19 travel restrictions you are unable to travel at the time, you will have up to 12 months to re-book your stay
The hotels located in central London feature modern gyms are all within walking distance to some of London’s most iconic attractions including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, London Eye and Buckingham Palace meaning you can explore the city on foot without needing to use public transport. Park Plaza London Riverbank and Park Plaza London Waterloo both come complete with spacious, heated indoor swimming pools.
I will be trying out the Park Plaza Waterloo in mid-May and will report back. Previously I have stayed at the Park Plaza Westminster which is not included but you can read my review here to give you an idea of the type of hotels that Park Plaza offer.
