Editor’s note: The team at The Points Guy loves to travel, but now is not the time for unnecessary trips. Health officials note that the fastest way to return to normalcy is to stop coming in contact with others. That includes ceasing travel. We are publishing travel deals because we should all use this time to think about and plan our next adventures. TPG doesn’t advise booking trips for travel until the late spring or early summer — and even then be mindful of cancellation policies.

Here’s another example of how starting your trip on mainland Europe can save you a ton of money on return flights to Asia. This time, the flights are to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) and Bangkok (BKK) with a mixture of SAS, Swiss and Swiss’ sister leisure airline Edelweiss Air, from just £1,002 return in business class. Flights are available in November and December 2020.

Getting to Oslo (OSL) from London couldn’t be easier or cheaper either, thanks to BA’s Reward Flight Saver award redemptions from just 6,500 Avios and £17.50.

The flights to Ho Chi Minh include a lengthy layover in Zurich in each direction, but it’s a great opportunity to discover another city that you might not otherwise have done. It will also give you a chance to experience one of the best airport terraces in the world in Zurich’s business class lounge.

To book these flights, head to Google Flights and enter Oslo (OSL) as your origin city and either Bangkok (BKK) or Ho Chi Minh (SNG) as your destination. Be sure to set the class of service to business and then scroll through the calendar function to find dates that work for you. To book, click through to one of the options to book directly with an airline. For Ho Chi Minh (SGN), booking with Lufthansa through Google Flights worked best, while for Bangkok (BKK), the best option was directly through the Swiss website.
