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.

The sale runs through Aug. 19 and includes deals like those listed below.

In addition, the hotels that are part of the packages include such properties as the Strand Palace and the Rembrandt.
