If you’re looking for a British Airways discount, you’re in luck! For the next week, Cashback site Quidco is offering 4.5% back when you book a British Airways Holiday Package.

If you don’t already have a Quidco account, you should receive a £10 bonus when you sign up using this link (after you earn £5+ of normal cashback).

Cashback rates are usually terrible or non-existent when booking BA flights, but by turning your booking into a BA Holiday, you can get a nice rebate and some additional benefits too.

What is a BA Holiday Package?

The idea behind British Airways Holidays is very simple – book your hotel or car hire at the same time as your flights and it will cost less than booking everything separately.

Indeed, adding a hotel or car hire to your booking can sometimes actually end up cheaper than the cost of just the flights alone(!) – strange as that may sound. It’s therefore always worth a quick experiment, adding a 1 night hotel stay or 1 day car hire to your trip to see what it does to the price, particularly if you are travelling in Business (Club) or First Class.

There are a couple of additional benefits too:

You earn bonus Avios: “Earn 1 bonus Avios for every £1 you spend on holidays. That’s on top of the Avios you’ll collect for the flight and car rental elements of your package”.

You can pay in installments:

  • Flight + hotel and flight + car holidays between £300-£1500: Just pay £150 deposit per booking
  • Flight + hotel and flight + car holidays between £1501-£2999: Just pay from £300 deposit per booking
  • Flight + hotel and flight + car holidays between £3000-£3499: Just pay from £350 deposit per booking

Then pay the balance in as many instalments as you want – you can decide when you make the payments and how much they are, as long as the full balance is paid at least 5 weeks before you travel. For expensive bookings in particular, not having to tie your money up many months in advance can be useful.


Booking a BA Holiday is often a good way to get a British Airways discount in itself, but with an extra 4.5% cashback currently available too, now could be a very good time to plan your next trip!
