Savvy travelers know planning ahead can often save you stress and a good bit of money. For those who like to book their trips months in advance and are looking to travel in style, British Airways has launched a robust sale on business-class flights and vacations that could help you pick your winter and spring getaways to Europe, Asia or Africa.

BA has cut the prices on a slew of routes and packages between Jan. 1 and April 30, 2022. Some of the destinations offered at discount include Dubai, Hong Kong and Cairo, as well as European locales such as Berlin, Budapest, Malaga and Dubrovnik.

Some of the flight offerings are more than 50 percent less than current ticket prices. If you want to bundle the flight with accommodations, there are vacations being offered that have tremendous value as well, especially considering the four- and five-star hotels included. The sale runs through Aug. 19 and includes deals like those listed below.

London holiday packages

Here at TPG, we like to remind you about the great value BA Holidays can sometimes offer. Many times, the packaging of flights and hotels is close in price to what a flight would cost on its own. The sale prices currently offered are also covered by British Airways Holidays’ flexible booking policy, which remains in place until Aug. 31, 2022. In addition, the hotels that are part of the packages include such properties as the Strand Palace and the Rembrandt.
