You probably don't need much of a nudge to book a flight to Europe right now, but how does $400 in savings sound?
British Airways is offering a sweet deal to entice US travelers to fly with them, by offering up to $400 off on vacation packages, as reported by Thrillist. Book before June 29 for vacations taking place before March 31, 2023, for travel to London from 26 airports across the US. The $400 deal counts for airfare as well as packages involving flight/hotel and flight/car.
So how does it work? You can save $50 per $1,000 minimum, $100 per $2,000, $250 on a package starting at $4,000, and the top savings of $400 applied to a $6,000 booking. So it's great news for those who are booking for big groups or luxury stays.
The airline offers up a few examples to get a sense of how your vacation could benefit. For instance, you can book a flight to London out of New York this September that includes a five-night hotel stay starting from $899 per person roundtrip; that number includes all taxes and fees and assumes a double occupancy at the hotel. A second example is a flight and seven-day car rental, going from New York to London roundtrip in October starting at $999. Those two examples have the discount already applied, and those prices make us go hmmmm, let's think about that and start clearing our schedules!
To make things even easier, British Airlines just announced four new direct flights from the US to London. Plus, a Covid test is no longer required to fly for reentry into the US. That said, you might want to read up on what's going on with UK airports right now.
