Quick question on double Tier Points BA Holidays offer

Hi

Does this still apply if I start/finish my journey in Dublin?

Thanks

b) The booking must be made by a UK resident and must originate and end in the UK.

In the US I have often booked a flight to NYC and then other flights to get to places in the middle. I actually would stay at the hotel in Little Rock but wouldn't necessarily want to fly to them all the way with One World airlines. Just wonder if there is any restriction on this.
Not a problem for viability, but often a problem getting it to load on the website. Tricks include adding car hire in the place, then the hotel, then removing the car hire. Or just ringing up.

I then casually refreshed my screen and voil. It was kind of spooky as if the BA App was watching what I was reading on Flyertalk...



That's nice. 😅

Same here - double TPs posted around lunchtime for a trip I finished 10 days ago.

Ha, would be pretty typical that by the time they got round to telling people it was taking 30 days they have managed to fix it!

Seems pretty consistent as per reports recently and my most recent bonuses that they are coming on Wednesdays again within 14 days of the end of the trip.

There has been a recent update to the T&Cs.

The UK edition of the T&Cs were updated a few days ago (26 April 2024). There are just two changes, well one change and one clarification. The good news is that Aer Lingus flights marketed by British Airways with a BA flight number are again included in the Double Tier Point Promotion.

Section 1(c) now reads:
.
"The booking must contain British Airways flights including codeshares and British Airways marketed and/or operated flights only. Flights not meeting these criteria within the booking won’t be awarded Tier Points. Flights offered as part of a British Airways Holidays package that are provided by other airline partners that do not have a British Airways flight number will not be eligible. Please note: Flights marketed by British Airways with or without a BA flight number that are operated by China Southern or LATAM are not eligible for Tier Points."
.
The other change to the T&Cs is a clarification regarding the end date of the promotion. Section 1(d) now reads:
.
"The hotel/car element of the package must be for a minimum of five nights within the flight travel dates for travel before 30 June 2025. (Holiday must be completed by this date i.e. return flight to the UK must be on or before 30 June 2025)."
.
I've now updated the OP with the latest edition of the T&Cs. I am placing the 4 March 2024 Edition of the T&Cs here in case anyone may need to rely on them in the future. Save for the 2 sections mentioned here, there are no other changes. As of of today, 1 May 2024, there are no changes to the USA edition of the T&Cs.
.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

4 March 2024 Edition

This promotion is only open to Eligible Participants. An Eligible Participant is a person who has a British Airways Executive Club membership and who books and travels on a Qualifying Booking (see definition below). British Airways Holidays reserves the right to verify the eligibility of Eligible Participants. By taking part in this promotion, Eligible Participants confirm that they unconditionally accept the Terms and Conditions set out below.

1. A “Qualifying Booking” is a British Airways Holidays booking that meets all of the following criteria:

a) The booking must be for a British Airways Holidays Flights + Hotel or Flights + Car or Flights + Hotel + Car package.

b) The booking must be made by a UK resident and must originate and end in the UK.

c) The booking must contain British Airways flights including codeshares and British Airways marketed and/or operated flights only. Flights not meeting these criteria within the booking won’t be awarded Tier Points. Flights offered as part of a British Airways Holidays package that are provided by other airline partners that do not have a BA flight number will not be eligible. Please note: Flights marketed by British Airways with or without a BA flight number that are operated by Aer Lingus, China Southern or LATAM are not eligible for Tier Points.

d) The hotel/car element of the package must be for a minimum of five nights within the flight travel dates for travel before 30 June 2025.

e) The hotel/car element of the package must be used i.e. hotel occupied and or car rental hired for the full booked duration.

f) The total trip length (time between first flight departing the UK and final flight returning to the UK) cannot exceed 30 days.

g) Bookings can only contain one flight departing the UK, multiple journeys from the UK within one booking will not qualify.

h) The participant must register their British Airways Executive Club number against their booking prior to travel.

2. For the avoidance of doubt this offer does not apply to any British Airways flight only bookings made without a hotel or car or where the hotel or car is added to a booking in a separate transaction.

3. This promotion enables Eligible Participants to receive double Tier Points for all qualifying flights which are part of a Qualifying Booking. British Airways Executive Club Terms and Conditions and the Executive Club Conditions of Use will apply.

4. Standard Tier Points for the flight elements will be awarded in line with regular awarding timelines after completion of the flight returning to the UK which is part of a Qualifying Booking. The initial transaction will be updated when the additional Tier Points due as a result of this promotion are added to the standard Tier Points, within 14 working days of the return flight which is part of a Qualifying Booking.

5. The additional Tier Points covered by this promotion are non-transferable and there is no cash or credit alternative. British Airways does not accept any liability in the event that the double Tier Points received as a result of this promotion expire. Tier Points expire at the end of each membership year – the anniversary of when you joined the Club. However, they will be added to your Lifetime Tier Points, the total Tier Points you’ve ever earned with the Club. Your membership year-end date and Lifetime Tier Points are on your Account Page.

6. All holiday packages are offered subject to availability.

7. British Airways Holidays booking Terms and Conditions apply. All travel on British Airways flights is subject to British Airways General Conditions of Carriage and its Notice and Conditions of Contract as stated on each ticket or itinerary as provided. Passengers travelling on flights operated by another carrier will be subject to the conditions of carriage of that carrier.

8. British Airways Holidays reserves the right to cancel or amend without notice the terms of this promotion at any time and for any reason.

9. Information is correct on 4 March 2024.

10. British Airways Holidays is in no way liable for the reproduction or indirect access via any third-party website or home page access which reproduction misstates or omits any of the information or Terms and Conditions of this promotion.

11. Promotional materials form part of these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions shall prevail if there is any conflict between these and the promotional materials.

12. This promotion will be governed by English law and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

13. The promoter is British Airways Plc, Waterside, PO Box 365, Harmondsworth, UB7 0GB. Registered No 1777777.

Thanks to Tobias-UK for keeping things updated!

And I'm quite encouraged by the recent speedy posting of double TPs - I've got a family holiday scheduled for 3 weeks (to the day) after my return from a prior BAH that will get me to Gold with the bonus TPs - so in other words, if the bonus posts within 17-18 days of me getting back, that gives BAs creaking IT the few days it normally needs to upgrade my status, and we'll be able to use the 1st Wing etc...

Going to be tight, but fingers crossed.
