British Airways holidays and the cheapest fares right now

Rules on international travel have eased across the UK with many Brits scrambling for some of the best holiday deals right now – with British Airways leading the way.

The airline and holiday provider flies to dozens of destinations across the globe and a number of fares, based on flying from London in economy, have been reduced.

The deals come as the Government scraps its traffic light system for international, which rated countries ‘green’, ‘amber’ and ‘red’ depending on their covid-19 risk.

But now there are only red list countries.

Fully vaccinated travellers arriving from non-red list countries no longer have to take a PCR test or lateral flow test before setting off for the UK.

However, they must prove they are fully vaccinated and book and pay for a PCR test two days after arrival. Children under five are exempt.

BA is now offering “our cheapest fares” to dozens of destinations to North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, UK and Ireland, South and Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and the Far East and Australia.
