Mobile Is a BA flydrive or one day car hire classed as holiday ?

As title says really.
BA flexible booking policy only covers "Holidays" not flight only.
If I add 1 night hotel/car hire is this classed as holiday ?
Is fly drive a holiday ?
Looked through BA website cant find the answer.
Thanks

You'll have no issue we've been adding 1 night car that we don't pick up or one night in a cheapie hotel that we don't use for several years.

I would recommend you check this page for the terms and conditions of BA's Book With Confidence (BWC)

britishairways/en-gb...st-information

Bear in mind at the moment BWC only extends up to bookings made by 30th September (only a week away). Nothing yet from BA to say if they are going to extend this.

Yes this is what I read so am eager to book by 30th Sept as it covers holidays up until 31st August 2021. That is why I need to clarify the term "holiday" as it doesn't cover flights.
Thanks

When trying to book flights and one night car it's coming up a lot more expensive than flights on it's own because they are including luggage. I want hand luggage only (cheaper option) but not giving me choice in hand luggage only flights when doing a custom trip 🤷

Yeah, I wish they'd allow you to select your travel class (if that's what it's called) on custom trips, we don't need a bag each on our trip and would love to make that saving

Exactly, we are a family of 5 and cope with hand luggage just pay for extra luggage on way home.

I was going to do this when I booked today but the price of the car hire for the full 3 weeks was amazing so booked full fly drive rather than just the 1 day car (usually book car hire separate)
