Free Helicopter to Monaco with British Airways


When we travel to Monaco from Nice Airport we now use Blacklane transfers(price from €64 EUR) however there is always a temptation to take the helicopter which is faster and more fun – for me, my husband won’t go near a helicopter.

British Airways has teamed up with the Monaco tourist authority to offer free return helicopter transfers with a ‘flight and hotel’ booking of just two nights during the Winter season (1 November to 31 December). For the rest of the year, you need to book a minimum of 5 nights hotel stay. You also get a free transfer from the heliport to your hotel and free tickets for certain Monaco attractions.

This is a really good deal in November (you can only book into November right now – I am actually interested in the December options!). I found 2 nights at the Fairmont Monte Carlo plus flights and helicopter transfers for just £430 GBP for two people (ie £215 GBP each), or £494 GBP for the Monte Carlo Bay in November. (Do check the operating hours of the helicopter before booking).

You also seem to be able to amend the flight options, but online you can only amend the flights to different times on the same day. If you can call British Airways Holidays by telephone and amend the flights to a different day this becomes a very interesting option for a longer trip to Monaco where you could add in additional hotel nights, not through BA holidays, so possibly booked in at a better deal.

Deal found on my friend Rob’s amazing HeadforPoints site.
