Have you booked your Mobile World Congress travel yet?

It’s me again. And I’m here with a pertinent reminder. Mobile World Congress: Are you going?

If you are, then it might be worth booking your travel right now.

I had a look on British Airways and goodness me it looks like they’ve been reading my blogs. The flights out to Barcelona from Heathrow are fairly reasonable at about £100ish. But back… that’s already pricing around £450 — sending the total cost to well over £500.

That’s if you’re partial to BA.

Right now on Expedia, you can get four nights (Sunday until Thursday) during the MWC week AND return flights for £1,253. In what looks like a decent four star hotel.

I’ve booked mine. In what is now becoming a tradition, I have decided yet again to do a flying visit for just the Wednesday. I think I spent about £50 to snag a business class seat using a whole load of BA points. If you’d like to use your Avios, you’ll need to be quick as it looked like BA are selling out of the special ‘reward’ seats.

    You don’t hang around do you Ewan, booking this early! Good move though…in the past when I attended it was always a nightmare trying to find suitable price tickets…

    I have set up alerts to prompt me to make bookings when BA initiate online sales. I received the alert this weekend informing me that BA had started a flash sale for Business Class travel. I immediately checked MWC dates – and found a return passage LGWBCN for circa £250 – (£148 with Avios points). I was dancing around the room with joy – then went for a shower. On returning, I realised that I had only placed the flight in the ‘purchase pending’ slot – and had failed to complete the transaction – and (inevitably) the transaction had timed out. On re-engaging the purchase request I found out that the price had more than doubled!

    Moral here is to NOT REST until the eTicket is in one’s inbox!
