Employee discount is mainly on flights
Good prices on long hauls to be honest is very good, you pay 10% of the fare plus the taxes of the ticket
Available. But not great. A program is offered but barely beats deals found on the open market.
Some good hotel and car hire discounts
Standby travel incurs so many taxes, fees and charges that it's now usually cheaper to book a firm seat on rival carriers.
Staff Travel allows discounted standby travel on BA with many reduced rate travel agreements with other airlines. Can be a wonderful benefit but needs careful planning to avoid getting stuck away from home!
pay for nothing on flights but got to hang on to the landing gear
Great discounts on flights, hotels and car hire. You get both staff travel standby tickets and discounted commercial tickets. Also airline rate discounts booking direct with many hotels and car hire companies. It has saved me £100's with flexible hotel bookings on holidays.
All types of discounts for staff are available through the Altitude rewards programme but if you search you'll find better deals on the Web. Hotel discounts are good.
Great possibilities, although it has become quite expensive with no upgrade policy. Understandably small discounts on reserved seats, but standby feels quite pricey, especially for European destinations.
