Are the BA #helloweekend deals good value?

It is the second weekend of the BA short notice holidays, combining hotels and flights for the coming weekend – #helloweekend

This weekend’s deals are:

  • Dublin – £119 per person, based on 2 people sharing
  • Glasgow – £119 pp
  • Alicante – £139
  • Pisa – £139
  • Munich – £169
  • Copenhagen – £179

I decided to select the Copenhagen offer to examine a little closer.

Changing the deal to be for one person:

Checking the BA site showed a fare for the flights shown of £177.30 per person. The hotel shown is available via Booking.Com for $248.78 (£168.09). This creates a price for a solo traveller of £345.39 and for a couple of £261.35 per person. Hence the BA deal does seem to be a decent saving.

However, the property selected does not receive the best of reviews on Tripadvisor:

 Overall

It seems that these deals can offer a decent saving from booking seperately, but be careful of the hotel selected.
