There’s a famous saying that goes, “I’d rather have a passport full of stamps than a house full of stuff”. The motto of our life. We are born, we live and then we die. With time being a commodity that can’t be bartered, traded or sold, why not use your precious time to travel and see the world?!?
And that is exactly where we find our latest adventure in the world. A grand trip to Madrid for 4 days. What to do, what to see, more importantly what to eat??!!
But, those are not the main reasons why we go, the journey and the stories ARE the vacation for us.
In these multi posts, we’ll share the travel experience of the One World Lounge at LAX, BA World Traveler Class and a great return on Iberia Business Class. But before we do all that, let’s rewind to actually ticketing the trip itself.
Here’s the deal we got:
Back in October, BA had a 3 day sale on Europe. You can see the exact details here, however, you could purchase Madrid, Barcelona, the UK, Rome and a few other select European cities.
We priced out a few of the cities and found the best price of $1,030.62 per person, round trip, Club World on BA (or select one world carriers). You are thinking, did I read that right? $1,030.62?!?!
You sure did and here’s the credit card statement to prove it.
Now, we will come clean and admit that we stacked this deal with the AARP discount. We ain’t over 50…yet…but anyone can join AAPR for around $15 a year. Not a bad $15 spent when it knocks $400 off the price. Plus, AAPR gives you some other cool discounts as well, like AT&T, Outback steakhouse and a few others seen here.
So there, you have it, our big secret on cheap discount BA Business Class tickets.
With the airfare ticketed and locked it, we selected our seats and awaited our fun trip.
So, what route and how did we ticket? We’ll tell more about that in the next post!
