Here is our regular round-up of the best deals for travel. If like me you are a little reluctant to tie up a lot of cash on a holiday right now, BA holidays are the best way to go with deposits starting from £150pp. Don’t forget you can just add a hotel for one night if you wish to turn it into a holiday! Yesterday I booked British Airways in a Club Suite with one night in a 5* hotel in New York for around £950 for next year. £150 deposit paid and I am also covered by the book with confidence policy if I decide I need to cancel and get a voucher instead. 


USA, Mexico and Canada

The best deals at the moment are via Inverness with BA. If you don’t want the hassle of doing a return via Inverness, you can usually have the return leg to London only for around £100 more. To do this as a holiday or just have a single night hotel, use BA’s complex holiday builder.

  • Club World
    • San Francisco £1143
    • Los Angeles £1255
    • Denver £1244
    • New York £939
    • Boston £1143

The British Airways sale ends on 30 September 2020. Prices for the US are available until the end of June and must be booked six months in advance. You must travel Tue/Wed/Thu outbound and Mon/Tue/Wed inbound.

You can find the BA sale page here. It’s also worth trying Skyscanner if you want to go flight only and if you find a cheaper price, you could use the BA price promise.

  1. I was looking at the INV-LHR-JFK as well for next year. Great price – when are you going Michelle?. SFO (via JFK so full tier points) is also a great price.

  2. Keep them coming Michelle. Enjoy the morning high, great photos too…

  3. Hello Michelle. First time responding. I am trying to find club to Melbourne Australia return Syndney or vice versa in November next year for my wife’s 60th. Any help

    • Hi David. It’s too early for November next year. Flights aren’t released until around 355 days before. The cheapest fares are likely to be from Europe. If you want to go from the U.K. it will cost a lot more. Personally I would recommend Qatar rather than BA. They occasionally do deals of around £2700 from the UK. Black Friday is the time to book at the end of November
