British Airways Avios Half Price Sale

by Continental Club on June 30, 2014

British AirwaysMembers of the British Airways Executive Club can redeem their Avios points at 50% off the usual rates in the airline’s current Half Price Sale.

The sale features destinations in North, South and Central America, as well as selected Indian routes, Chengdu in China and Johannesburg in South Africa, travelling in World Traveller economy cabins.

Avios Sale

Bookings must be made by 13th July 2014, for travel dates between 1st October 2014 and 28th February 2015. The period 18th December 2014 to 10th January 2014 is blacked out, and full taxes, fees and charges remain payable. British Airways American Express cardholders can use their 2-for-1 vouchers in conjunction with the promotion.

Although it’s generally-held that longhaul redemptions in non-premium cabins don’t represent the best ultimate value in £/Avios terms, there are times when a World Traveller Avios ticket can make practical sense – and even more so with 50% off the number of Avios required.

Travellers looking for booking flexibility and those only wishing to travel one-way may be particularly drawn to this promotion, as comparable revenue fares on such terms are usually at the top end of the fare range. Those with existing bookings at the full Avios rates who are considering cancelling and rebooking in the sale should be mindful that Avios ‘inventory’ is not always automatically returned to Avios availability upon cancellation; it can sometimes disappear completely. In such circumstances, subject to having enough available Avios, it may be prudent to make an additional booking at the new rates and then cancel the pre-existing one.
