Why book with British Airways Holidays?

Say sayonara to hours spent scouring the web for the best holiday deal. With British Airways Holidays, you can find flights, accommodation and car hire all in one place – and reap a ton of benefits in the process. Here are some reasons to get booking...

Bag bonus Tier Points

In case you didn’t know, Tier Points unlock your Club benefits – think free seat selection, priority check-in, lounge access and more – so collecting them is crucial to a truly luxurious getaway. Thankfully, if you book a package with British Airways Holidays to travel before 31 December 2024, you can get double Tier Points on the flights for that holiday, meaning your future holiday could tip you into the next Tier.


Toast to the best deal

Booking with British Airways Holidays saves you time and stress. It allows you to select your flight, hotel and car hire all in one place at one time (although add-ons – like experiences – can always join the party later). Plus, to make it as convenient and as hassle-free as possible, British Airways Holidays do all the calculations for you and include checked baggage on every booking – no matter where you’re taking off to. Dreamy.


Book now, pay later

Keen to secure that long-awaited beach break but don’t have the funds just now? With British Airways Holidays, that’s no problem. You can confirm your booking from just £60 per person up front, and then pay off the remaining balance in instalments – or in one go – whenever is convenient to you, up until four weeks before you travel for short haul or seven weeks for long haul. There’s no excuse to let that dream escape slip through the net.


Feel the ATOL protection

Though we don’t always like to think about it, sometimes even the best-laid plans can go awry. Luckily, if you book a flight and hotel or car hire package with British Airways Holidays your booking is ATOL protected, so you won't be stranded abroad, and your money is completely safe. Plus, if your holiday can’t be fulfilled, you’ll get a full refund within 14 days, giving complete peace of mind.


Avios, Avios, Avios

A very important reason, indeed: you’ll collect extra Avios on every component of the British Airways Holidays experience. Up for grabs is a bonus 1 Avios for every £1 spent on your holiday, that’s in addition to the Avios earned on the flight element.


Sleep soundly with carefully selected properties

As one of the UK’s largest holiday companies, British Airways Holidays has a wealth of accommodation options to choose from (more than 12,000 hotels and resorts, in fact). However, the focus is on quality, rather than quantity. You can rest assured that all properties are carefully selected to adhere to the highest standards of cleanliness, service and safety, meaning you’re guaranteed top-notch digs around the globe.


Be clued in on animal welfare

British Airways Holidays has an established partnership with the Born Free Foundation, to underpin and support our award- winning animal welfare policy, which is designed to allow travellers to make an informed decision on their holidays. British Airways Holidays believes that the best place for wild animals is in the wild, and therefore will never promote hotels that keep wild animals in captivity, will label those that do, and will not offer tickets for attractions where wild animals kept in captivity are central to the attraction, such as zoos and dolphinaria.  


Rest easy with an all-hours helpline

So you’ve got ATOL protection, fee-free changes and you’re racking up the Tier Points – what more could you want? An emergency holiday helpline, that’s what. You guessed it: all bookings with British Airways Holidays come complete with a 24-hour helpline so, if your plans change or the unexpected happens, we’ll be there when you need us.
