British Airways Holidays is offering a wide range of holiday packages for customers booking their flight and hotel together. Those jetting off to far-flung destinations in the Caribbean can enjoy week-long holidays to Tobago from £599pp, Barbados from £749pp and Antigua from £719pp.
For European City break lovers, these start from £139pp for two nights, flights plus hotel.

Sale season is in full swing
As we wind down from Summer, thoughts of the next break aren’t far away – be it half term, Christmas or even into next year, with most of the major airlines engaged in some sort of sale or promotional activity to drive traffic and revenue as we prepare to hit the winter months.
And it’s a good chance to get a break with a discount – however much it is.
