INSPIRATION • November 2017
When The Club launched in October 2013, we had a simple mission: to provide the inside track on travel, the Executive Club and, of course, the latest developments at British Airways. Fifty issues on and we’ve delivered countless expert opinions, destination inspiration and smart travel tips to satisfy the most curious of travellers. To celebrate this milestone, we scoured the archives for a look back at the best of The Club
Since the magazine launched four years ago, The Club has been in search of the world’s most epic drives, as nominated by motoring experts from the likes of Sir Ranulph Fiennes to David Gandy. In total, these combined drives cover 210,102 miles – the equivalent of travelling around the world more than eight times. We’ve compiled five of the most popular epic drives in The Club’s history.
Whether it’s tips for sleeping on a plane or how to breeze through the airport, The Club has tapped into the knowledge of global travel experts to glean the ultimate smart tips – a total of 376 so far – to help guide you on your travels. This issue, we ask the experts: What will travel look like in 50 years’ time?
From new routes to old favourites, short-haul city breaks to long-haul luxury escapes, we’ve shone the spotlight on 436 BA destinations…

There’s still time to book tickets for our next event on 3 November – A Taste of Mauritius – at British Airways i360 in Brighton.
