BA in flight customer service is terrible! Worth paying more for a better airline...Emirates or Ethihad to India
I'm not normally fussy about airlines but I flew BA to Peru last month, it's seriously falling behind other major airlines, I'd be reluctant to recommend. That being said, a cheap flight is a cheap flight and if it gets you to where you wanna be for less then go for it.
British airways is worst airline, better going on Turk shed
BA has definitely got less offers than in the past. My gold has loads of offers although the BA just had the Apple and Harrods offers which I used.
Is there a difference between the Premium Plus and the basic card? I don't see this offer on my account. Sadly most of these deals seem to be unique to certain people, but thanks for posting anyway.
In my experience, the gold card gets the most offers, followed by BA Amex and then the free basic membership reward credit card. Sometimes the offers are the same, but sometimes different.
Thanks for posting but I'm struggling to see a deal here. I'd love to see more Amex offers as it's been dire on the BA Amex, I have 6!
Sounds like the USA
I’m in Dubai at the moment on holiday and can easily be done on a budget, unless you like eating in 5* hotels, which I don’t at home unless someone else is paying lol Five guys shack shak etc all same price as at home, had fantastic kebabs in the malls.
A country with silly prices and rules? Where a simple mistake can you end you up in prison...yeah no...heat for the deal but cold for country!
I could be wrong but I believe all bars are closed during Ramadan. When I went a few years ago, no alcohol allowed anywhere during the day, not even in hotels!
I wasn't tarring anyone
Flights a few weeks ago were £1800 for 4 of us, today without the discount £2650. Paid the £1800 last year a month before flying seems one if their non offers wait for the normal sales. You also can’t use the code with avios which for a family can be a better way of using miles as you have no chance of getting a reward seat for 4 of you.
What counts as long haul?
I am a parent and who said I "chose" to be one?
However the toddler is not given a seat on a train I mean.
Just checked on flights from Manchester to Edinburgh.... they want me to fly to Heathrow first and change!? No thanks, will go on the train where my toddler is always free!
Used to live in Newcastle. One of the most beautiful places in the UK.
This deal really gets my goat I've got no kids 🐐 (lol)
Not sure but DFS is having a sale soon (lol) (lol) (lol)
I agree but you can't fly on Emirates to NY from uk.
Me too, I have solidly defended them on here!
That is the all business A318 - BA1. I doubt it is that important to them really. It is a once a day service now LCY - JFK. I would like to do it someday but currently saving Avios for a 2 for 1 F redemption for LHR to JFK. Never done BA first so looking forward to it. People love a good moan about BA but personally I have always been happy with their service. As for the Emirates comparisons - go and fly a 777 with 10 abreast and then tell me how wonderful they are........
Is it better to have this or the 1% cashback card? Is there a usual monetary value the avios equates to?
Get the premium one even though you have to pay annual fee, but is a lot easier to hit the target
A deal would be when this goes up to 9000 points... This is just the standard product.
5,000 bonus Avios welcome offer, if you spend £1,000 in your first three months of Card membership
This offer has been available for past few months so nothing new
I agree. Tourists should always get ripped off and scammed, everywhere in the world. I also think we're dipping into racism, discrimination, homophobia, xenophobia with people on here who are against criminal activity.
Seconded. Taiwan ftw
Taiwan is a good option if you would like to experience the authentic Chinese culture, with plenty activities to offer e.g. hot springs, forest parks, beaches etc. Visa free for UK nationals, nice food & much nicer people. Mega cities in China are rather soulless and will guarantee to stress you out big time.
Ouch! Been looking for a definite price on the visa. Didn't realise it was so expensive. Oh well, no choice but to get one now!
Only £110 if you have an Irish passport. http://www.visaforchina.org/MAN_EN/upload/Attach/mrbj/284838.pdf
Thanks, I've managed to book dates close to my original Monarch booking.
You're welcome - glad somebody gets it :)
Price changed for me and saved over £200 as was waiting for this. Checked it yesterday and nothing, so glad uvsadealdealdeal posted it. Much appreciated
you need to be more flexible in your choice of dates sounds like you are mixing a cheap new flight (new slot) with an expensive old one (old slot) which sort of demonstrates my point, ie choose the new slots
there wouldn't be, obviously the cheap flights will be the new slots released today, so you couldn't have been watching them
We are a family with 1 child, very soon to be 4. We leave ours at grandma's and stay at the Holiday Inn when visting. You can get 2 kids in most hotel rooms if they are in a cot still. Going forward I am saving Avios and then you can book hotels and you can book room type too. We had a nice big room at an Intercontinental all booked with Avios.
Will definitely consider it later. But now a family with 2 young children, I guess is impossible to get a room for 4 people, or 4 free drinks at check-in LOL! Thanks for your recommendation anyway :)
Yes I do, IF you pay for a IHG hotel anyway at £99+ then there is no fee technically as you get a free night. Most people pick an IC hotel in London and get £250 value out of the free night. We would just be staying there because it's free (£99) so we spend it on a hotel we need during expensive time of year. Last year it was a Holiday Inn at £105. You get status with the card which gets you a pint and some nuts so that's £5 value every time you check in. We stay quite a lot of times a year at a Holiday Inn so make use of the free drink/s, sometimes you get 2 at check in. You are meant ot get other benefits like early and late check out but realistically you can just ask the hotel without status and normally get them. Also you are meant to get room upgrades but I haven't had any so far so don't count on it.
Are you using this as well? Perhaps is good for places that don’t accept Amex.... still not really a fans of pay card fees....
How about an IHG card - £99 fee but you get a free night after a year if you spend 10k so book an expensive room to make the most of it. You get Platinum status so get a free drink at check in. Spend £37.5k and get spire status, no difference really but 25k points bonus.
Only £39.99 now !
Sorry, did you not get the memo? This is HotAmazon&GearbestDeals now, none of us can be bothered to shop around so we just post what gets reduced on about five different sites.
Airlines are banning ‘smart’ luggage https://globalnews.ca/news/3900964/airlines-ban-smart-luggage/
Suitcase with all wires in means no suite case at other end, and possible long delay due to evacuation of airport and many peed of people :-)

Website is clumsy and very difficult to find a holiday for 5 for certain dates
First of all, try checking through your phone a price of economy. Then ensure you use a browser on your laptop in which you never browsed the BA site (if you browsed the BA site, please clear all cookies and cache from browser). Then choose economy flight + car through the browser on laptop, and see if the combo gives you a cheaper price than the individual flight, plus see if it will give you by default a business flight which is cheaper (you can always change the flight in the package).
Mate it's a deals site not a talent show.
Nope.. still can't get any deals.. Every option I try (with different browser) shows Business / club class about double that of Economy. Need more details on how/where this deal/glitch will work.
When the economy costs £462 and you get a business and a car for £450, it's a deal. Like it or not, the purpose of publishing the deal is letting others to try and save money on their holidays, using the trick I just described, whether you book it a week or a year in advance.
Galia MELON - hard, tasteless, don't bother and by the way, not that long ago best offers from Lidl were less than 50 pence, now almost double !!!!! .... some offers those are...... NOT. ... (skeptical)
Yep, prices have increased quite a bit for the last couple of years, to pay for the smarter stores and increased number of stores. Had a laugh when this specials were 5 Gala apples for 99p, much cheaper bargains elsewhere.
Soon the prices will be as in the big 4 supermarkets.
Thank you appreciate your effort XD
Thanks as always for posting.
not on my costco amex card
Not on any of ours either :/ shame as I've got to buy an entire bathroom suite this month...
Not on any of our cards, including 2 BA premium plus cards! Good if you have it
I can't see this offer either. Shame because I'm really keen to take a holiday before Christmas and I prefer flying with the Oneworld alliance.
You are thinking of this? https://www.americanexpress.com/uk/network/shopping.html but it isnt there im afraid
No idea. You positive you hit the 'lowest fare' radio buttons as I noticed it didn't do that automatically when I selected that option for my outbound flight. What dates, times, airports are you inputting?
I did that is why I get £39 each way so return should be 78 . But after the payment it comes up with £90.70. Where is the addtional of £12.70 coming from ?
You have to click on the lowest fare buttons
I search the flight to Berlin in December with £39 each ways. When I am about to pay It comes £90.70. what did I get wrong here.
There was another deals posted of £20 off £250 straight after my post of £15 off £100. No one had £20 off £250 but that post gone HOT?? Also some one wrote this issue in my post but comments has been removed?
To confirm it's online spend not in-store
Amazing how 15 off 100 is cold, but 20 off 250 is hot!
It's on the Nectar Amex
Not on my card. But I did have a 5% cashback offer on tfl pay as you go payments on my platinum card
Er, No. Due to its location in the Caribbean Sea, Barbados is fortunate to not experience hurricanes in the last who knows how many decades,which have devastated other Caribbean islands and parts of the US. Instead they experience tropical storms (quite scary heavy winds, rough seas) which clips the island as it travels further up the Caribbean then turns into a hurricane (for their Caribbean neighbours & US). I would love to go at this price however prepping the minion for upcoming GCSEs. Should be a criminal offence the prices the travel industry is allowed to charge during school holidays!! oO 8)
Just checked 6 and 7 September is priced at £643.
If was early September I'd bite but I'm pretty sure they've had massive hurricanes most October's for the last few years years haven't they?
I went to Cancun in Late Sept / Early Oct once and the weather was still absolutely roasting, sure the odd tropical downpour for half hour and then clear skies again. Won't be the same everywhere but could well be a cheeky bargain
This is not a good time of year to experience a great resort. Don't do it.
Moving British IT jobs offshore and expect people to fly with them after recent infrastructure disasters...? Reputational damage and public have no confidence in the company or brand. Classic example of putting corporate greedy cost saving instead of putting customer first which has back fired.
Fights to Belfast and Newcastle! This is a steal. I love Belfast. Best city in the world.
Of course the unions and socialists would suggest it must be entirely down to that. Every time anything goes wrong it must be down to outsourcing offshore. If there hasn't been outsourcing it's down to management and cost cutting. Tram driver falls asleep at the controls and its the managements fault because drivers are too scared to come forward. Since you appear to have such knowledge in the area, perhaps you could clear something up. The issue occurred due to a UK contractor(s) switching the power off (isolating the equipment from both main and backup supply). Then that same UK contractor(s) failed to follow the power restoration procedure, causing massive corruption to the system. In the first instance how was that the fault of the Indians? In fact that was the fault of the staff they hadn't shifted to India! Secondly, did the Indians design and build a brand new system last year? Or did they take on the management of the existing infra-stucture? I'm sure someone as knowledgeable as yourself would know a system of this scale is rarely delivered in a year? In other words it's likely the system was actually designed and built by the UK workers. And its the system design that was at fault not the support staff. Switching on power failure and recovering when power is restored are largely automated processes. Neither the original UK or replacement Indian support staff would have had any input in the issue. Their job would have been afterwards in recovering the system, which on a large complex DB is not a trivial task. NB: Although its harsh to even blame the system architects given how the fault occurred. Isolating power and then putting it back on without following restart procedures is generally a BIG NO NO!
Of course they say it's nothing to do with the fact they laid off 700 workers last year and shifted the jobs to India. Similar thing happened with Natwest a couple of years ago after a massive job shift to India!
