Rent between 1 February and 17 March, and you will receive 6 Avios per £1 spent with a minimum of 1,000 Avios.
There are, of course, conditions attached:
- minimum 3 day rental
- Group C car or above
- you must use BA discount codes when booking
which will knock out a lot of people, and may not produce the cheapest rate compared to other discount codes to which you are entitled.
This offer is nowhere near as good as the Hertz deal I ran last week. That offers 900 Avios per day with similar conditions, albeit you credit to Iberia and then move your Avios across to BA.
And, for short rentals, Virgin Atlantic offers 1,000 Flying Club miles for any Hertz, Avis or Alamo rental. If you do a lot of one day rentals then this may be the best route to take – even if you don’t get enough to fly Virgin, you can convert 10,000 Virgin miles to 20,000 Hilton HHonors points.
