Christmas is a notoriously expensive time of year for travel, and often, affordable flights are booked up months in advance. Add in the inevitable costs of buying gifts, and travelling home to see loved ones can seem impossible.

We know many of you may be struggling to make the trip home this Christmas, so we’re doing something to help out. We’ve teamed up with our friends at British Airways to gift two lucky TPG U.K. readers complimentary return flights home for the holidays.

This Christmas, you — or someone you think truly deserves it — has the chance to spend Christmas at home with our Fly Me Home competition.

What can you win?

If you’re one of the two winners, you’ll get either:

  • One return Club Europe flight (short-haul business class); or
  • One return World Traveller Plus flight (long-haul premium economy).

The choice is yours. With the winnings, you can either fly from the U.K. to the rest of the world, or even better, fly from the rest of the world back to the U.K. for Christmas. Keep in mind that one of the winning flights is within Europe, while the other can take place within BA’s entire network.

Outbound flights must be taken between 9 December and 23 December 2019, and you’re required to return within one month.


Whether you live and work outside of the U.K. and want to come home, or you want to leave the country, we want to give you a holiday journey that you won’t forget. Best of all, even if you’re already home, you can nominate someone who you think is deserving of the prize.

How to enter

To enter the competition for a chance to win a seat on the flight of your choice, follow these steps:

  1. Share a photo of your travels on Instagram.
  2. In the caption, add a brief explanation of why you — or the person you want to nominate — deserves to win the coveted prize along with the desired route (e.g. JFK-LHR) if you were to win.
  3. Hashtag #FlyMeHome in the caption.
  4. Follow and tag @thepointsguyuk.

The competition opens on 21 November 2019 and closes at 11:59pm on 1 December 2019.

You must be a U.K. resident or citizen aged 18 years or older in order to win, and all entry photographs must be the original work of the entrant. The winners will be selected by a panel of judges and will be contacted on Instagram before 10 a.m. on 3 December. You can find full terms and conditions for the giveaway here.

Good luck!
