As frequent flyers, on a short hop to Europe or exploring the far East and West of the Globe, we’re always in search of a bargain to travel in style! The joy of travelling should start from getting to the airport, and we got hooked on the trappings of business class travel and everything that comes with it; lounges, lie-flat beds, food & wine, and free-flowing champagne! We’ve come to realise that traveling in style doesn’t have to break the bank.

Neither of us are millionaires and we’re continually looking to achieve our flying dreams by spending as little cash as we can. Be it a seat sale or miles redemption for reward flights, we tend to let our wallets tell us where we’re going next rather than having a fixed agenda...

So, if you’re looking for flight & accommodation reviews, flight deals, and budget luxury travel tips & tricks then you have come to the right place. Welcome to BoardingGroup.One

Apple devices

With Christmas just around the corner, British Airways has launched a promotion with Apple. Until 22 December 2019, Executive Club members can earn 9 Avios per £1 spent on Apple products, purchased through the Apple website.

The new iPhone 11 Pro and Apple Watch 5 devices are included in the promotion, but notable exclusions are the new AirPods Pro and the new 16″ MacBook Pro.
To prevent abuse, a maximum of 2 iPhones and 5 other eligible devices can be purchased in any 30 day period.

9 Avios per £1 will be awarded on on any spend before taxes and shipping charges. So, an iPhone 11 Pro 64GB would net you 7,551 Avios (£1,049 – 20% VAT) and an iPhone Pro Max 256GB would net you 9,351 Avios (£1,299 – 20% VAT).
If you hold an American Express Premium Plus credit card, you could pay with this card and earn an additional 1.5 Avios per £1. This would earn you a further 1,948 Avios.

We’re not always the biggest fans of earning points through referral links, as it can mean spending more than you normally would for the exact same product. That means we’re effectively paying extra to get the points – NOT A BONUS! This Apple offer is different because you pay exactly the same price, but get the points FOR FREE. If you’re planning on buying an Apple product, this is a welcome sweetener.

To get the offer, Executive Club members should login at and then click through on the referral link provided. Full details of the Avios offer and the link to to click can be found at:
