London Calling: British Airways Offers Free Hotel Rooms
NEW YORK, NY - British Airways launched a ’London for Free’ sale, offering two nights free accommodation in select London hotels this summer.
The ’London for Free’ offer is available when customers purchase a roundtrip airfare between the US and the UK. The offer is valid through Thursday midnight (EST), Jul. 25, 2012. The free hotel stay is valid for travel from Jul. 27, 2012, through Sep. 30, 2012.
Four star hotels participating in ’London For Free’ are the DoubleTree London Westminster and the Rembrandt. The offer also includes the Tavistock, the Royal National, the President and the Astons Apartments. The two free hotel nights are based on double occupancy; single occupants are offered one free hotel night.
Simon Talling-Smith, Executive Vice President Americas, said "The UK will be host to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and we’re delighted to offer some great deals to last minute travelers who want to explore London during this exciting summer."
Hotel accommodation can be booked and purchased with British Airways published roundtrip airfares that originate in the US during the promotional period. Restrictions apply.
To promote the special offer, British Airways has released a new television advertisement. The spot features a British Airways aircraft taking passengers past some of the most popular sights in London, set to the soundtrack ’London Calling.’
The ad features a British Airways aircraft taxiing down the road through London to the rallying soundtrack of ’London Calling’ by The Clash.
You can now enter your street address with zip code before the ad - and images of your street will be incorporated into the video as the plane passes your street (it will work with most zip codes and addresses).
