British Airways has a fall deal on packages to London that includes a 2-night stay for free. Guests who book by Thursday will receive two nights for free at select 3-star and or 4-star hotels in central London, including Central Park, Thistle Euston, Fraser Place Queens Gate, Hilton London Docklands and Kensington Close. The deal is good on travel from Oct. 21- Dec. 19.
Fares from BWI-Marshall to Heathrow start at around $504 round-trip plus taxes and fees, which adds about $188 per ticket. There are some details: The hotel deal is based on double occupancy, so no solo travelers. Also, the fares are nonrefundable and a Saturday night stay is required. There's also a weekend surcharge fee of $30 each way for travel Thursday-Sunday.
One last thing to keep in mind is that the dispute between British Airways and its cabin crews over pay and working conditions is deadlocked, which earlier this year led to walkouts and flight disruptions. Talks are ongoing, however, according to the Associated Press.
