Our hotels come out on top, plus BA Better World focuses on the community and KidZania provides the ultimate half-term day trip
British Airways Holidays' top-reviewed hotel partners in 2021
Which hotels have the best locations, service, value for money – and everything in between? When you return from holiday, we ask you to review your hotel experiences. In 2021, we gathered 23,392 impartial Reevoo reviews, and four per cent of the hotels reviewed received a Customer Excellence Award.
To be eligible, hotels require a rating of at least 9.0 out of ten from guests and a minimum number of reviews – and that’s no mean feat. Since the pandemic, travellers have become ever more discerning, venturing further afield, staying abroad longer and making considered choices. Discover British Airways Holidays' hotel partners that have exceeded expectations by ensuring every detail is just so.
We’ve launched a community fund across the UK
Looking to offer life-changing opportunities? BA Better World Community Fund, which is part of our BA Better World sustainability programme, supports projects that benefit the climate, nature, communities and colleagues. The initiative enables us to deploy our people and resources to help those affected by crisis.
For our first round of funding, we’re working alongside four organisations: Fantasy Wings, Global Grooves, Energy Garden and Black2Nature. If you’re a charity or social enterprise group, you can apply for funding through our Crowdfunder page. Organisations can use the funding to further create a positive impact in their communities by developing an approach, product or technology, implementing a new initiative, or even expanding existing services to a new area to reach more people.
Broaden your children’s career horizons this May half term
Hoping to inspire and educate your young ones during the break? Parents need look no further than KidZania London.

Based at Westfield London shopping centre, each KidZania session guarantees up to four hours of both collaborative and independent immersive experiences, where children can work, play, earn and learn.
