  • Manage payments flexibly. Secure your booking with a deposit from as little as £75pp, pay off the balance in installments, and your final payment is not due until three weeks before your holiday starts
  • Refunds without delay. In the event that BA Holidays cannot fulfill a holiday package, you will receive a full refund within 14 days.
  • ATOL Protection. All BA Holidays are ATOL protected.

Travel isn’t without its challenges right now, from changing entry restrictions to wearing masks in most destinations, but if you’re looking for a summer getaway, these bargains allow you to do so without breaking the bank, while enjoying a little extra flexibility if plans change.
