Deals of the month - September 2018 (Buy cheap Avios, Business class from £1150)

From winter sun to next years summer holiday there are plenty offers flying around the Internet right now (pardon the pun) but we have picked out a few of the best. From Business Class flights to Cape Town for £1150 to a weekend at the Christmas markets in Dusseldorf from £22 we have you covered! All prices are correct at the time of posting and are for 1 adult return fare (16th Sep).

Buy cheap Avios

Avios from 0.85p

Groupon Spain seems to be doing more and more of these deals where you can buy 2000 Avios for just €18 which works out at just 0.85p per Avios (anything less than 1p is a great deal). If you don't speak Spanish like me then its best to open up Google translate to help you navigate the website but its fairly straight forward.

  1. Open a Groupon Spain account.
  2. Open an Iberia Account .
  3. Click here to get the Groupon deal .
  4. Buy the 2000 avios package. 
  5. After payment view your Groupons.
  6. Open the voucher for 2000 avios. 
  7. Click the website link on the left had side of the voucher (use google translate to help find it).
  8. Fill in the details from the voucher on the website.
  9. After the Avios are in your Iberia Account go to British Airways and transfer avios between your Iberia and BA account. 
  10. You can open multiple Groupon accounts and send the point all to one Iberia Account. 

BA Sale (Business Class from £1150)

British Airways currently have a special offer flying from Amsterdam to South Africa and are also running their end of summer sale, below are the best deals available. One additional note is if you book a British Airways flight it can actually be cheaper to add a hotel or car hire on for just 1 night. You don't even need to pick the car up or stay at the hotel but for some reason it can drop the price of a flight only fare.
