British Airways is offering flyers the chance to book flights and vacation packages for travel to Barcelona, Dublin, Edinburgh, London, Nice, Paris and Rome between now and Spring 2017. The deals include the option of just air travel or vacation packages, which include a five-night hotel stay. In addition, you can choose to fly in either BA’s World Traveller or World Traveller Plus (premium economy) cabin.

You can book your trip directly through British Airways’ website. You must book by May 11 for travel between April 21 and March 31, 2017. The lowest fares appear to be to Dublin, however there are also reasonable fares to the other included cities. Here are some examples of what you can book for two people to London:

New York (JFK) to London (LHR) in World Traveller + 5 Nights at The Royal National for $999 per Person:

New York
New York (JFK) to London (LHR) + 5 Nights at The Royal National for $999 per person round-trip.

You can book this deal for $999 per person, which includes a round-trip ticket in BA’s World Traveller cabin from JFK to LHR and five nights at The Royal National. Note that the return flight is from London’s Gatwick Airport (LGW). If booked separately for these same dates, the flight would cost $1,620 total, or $810 per person. Rates for a five-night stay in the same room at The Royal National are going for around $162 per night, for a total of $810 for the whole stay.

If booked separately, you would pay a total of $1,215 per person, however, with BA’s package you’d only pay $999 per person for the same itinerary — saving you a total of $216 per person.

If booked separately for the same flights, you would pay $1,632 per person for a total of $3,264. If you were to book the same five-night stay in the same room at The Rembrandt for two people, you would pay around $273 per night, for a total of $1,365 for the whole stay.

If booked separately, you would pay a total of $2,315 per person, however, with BA’s package you’d only pay $2,055 per person for the same itinerary — saving you a total of $260 per person.

There are plenty more flight/destination/hotel options to choose from, with base prices ranging from $799 per person (Dublin) to $1,679 per person (Rome).
