Back in September 2016 Rob wrote about Restaurant Circle, a new restaurant booking portal that would let you earn Avios when making a reservation.
It was set to launch in October but kept being delayed.
Now it’s finally live.
You will earn 250 Avios every time you make a restaurant booking through the portal.
How does it work?
If you live in Ireland, you can add an AerClub number. There are a large number of Irish restaurants included.
For every booking you make via the Restaurant Circle site, you will receive 250 Avios. As long as you turn up for your reservation (!), the Avios will be added to your account within two weeks.
Where can I dine and earn Avios?
You can search for restaurants on the Restaurant Circle website by postcode, city or restaurant name.
There is a decent selection of restaurants included although it is not as comprehensive as, say, OpenTable or even ResDiary, the company that runs Restaurant Circle. This is because restaurants have to pay an extra fee to Avios when you dine. Included is, for example, my favourite brunch place in Clapham Ben’s Canteen (if you instagram your food and tag Ben’s Canteen you get a free Bloody Mary!).
