Editor’s note: Now is not the time to travel. The U.K. is still in its third national lockdown. As such, you must remain home unless you need to travel for essential reasons. 

It’s been a while since we wrote about a deal at TPG U.K., and with good reason. Since the end of 2020, all but essential travel has been banned by the U.K. government in an effort to protect the country from the spread of new strains of COVID-19. The country remains in the grips of a strict lockdown.

However, we know that many are ready and raring to travel when it is safe and legal to do so. With the vaccination process in full swing and an exit out of strict restrictions on the horizon, it could only be a matter of months before we’re able to travel to our favourite spots again.

With that in mind, the current BA sale has some great return fares to holiday favourites across Europe. We’ve given examples of great fares from just £54 return starting in September, a time when there’s a chance that restrictions will permit for travel once again. The BA flash sale ends on 26 January.

If you’re tempted to book but are worried about having to change your trip at short notice, you’ll need to book flights for travel before September. BA’s current change policy states that flights booked to travel before 31 August 2021 can be exchanged for a voucher or changed to another date.
