As the U.K. exits lockdown and international travel has officially returned, it’s time to think about those holidays you might have put off the entire pandemic. To entice your wanderlust, British Airways has launched a new sale with both flights and holiday packages for late summer, autumn and winter travel.

Here are some of the deals you can book.

British Airways also allows you to part pay for these offers with Avios, but that isn’t typically a great idea. For example, this sale offers return economy flights to New York for £349, or you can choose to pay £179 plus 29,900 Avios.

Looking at that £349 sale price, you would only pay £179 if you part paid with the 29,900 Avios. So you are saving £170 in exchange for spending 29,900 Avios. TPG values those Avios at £329 — far more than the £170 you are “saving” by spending them. So it doesn’t make financial sense to part-pay with Avios at those rates.

New York City is also a route that is constantly on sale, too — we have regularly seen economy sale fares below £300 return.
