The sun may be setting on peak summer, but certainly not on good deals. British Airways latest sale brings some of the lowest prices of the year, with the addition of flexible booking benefits and other perks, designed to make the idea of travel more stress free than ever, during these unique times.
From luxury flights to places near and far, to cheap and cheerful city breaks all over Europe and the rest of the world, there are bargains, and we’ve got them all covered.
British Airways Sale
Business class to the USA in Club Suites from £1195, or Dubai in economy for £299, Los Angeles for £359 or St. Lucia for £399. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, thanks to new booking flexibility policies and extra perks for BA Holidays bookings.
British Airways Holidays throw in a free checked bag up to 32kg on all fares, and often some significant savings on hotels. GSTP’s favourite BA Holidays benefit is definitely the payment flexibility though, being able to pay over time, up to three weeks before departure with no added fees, breaking up the cost in easy to manage bites.

British Airways Booking Flexibility
British Airways sale isn’t just pricing, it’s flexibility too. If you decide not to travel, you can easily convert your flight into future credit for the full amount, to spend for a later date. If you need to change dates for flights booked during the sale, you can do so without any change fees, simply paying any fare difference.
Of course, if you book a package holiday, where you add car rental, hotel, or both to the flights, you’re protected under the ATOL programme. As a GSTP side tip, holiday packages provide additional flexibility if the UK Government changes travel advice, since this would trigger refund options, rather than just vouchers.
Basically, if you’re thinking about travel, these British Airways Sale deals are a great way to dip your toes in the sand, and get your head in the clouds.
Being able to cancel if plans change while having the full amount ready for a later date is great, and so is the idea of actually getting away. GSTP is currently in Greece, and the experience has been safe, and wonderful so far. Happy travels.
