Avios.com has launched a special offer on redemptions in Club Europe, BA’s short-haul business class. It is not a life-changing deal, but it is worth knowing about if you were thinking of a short break this Spring. You can book Club Europe redemptions for 15,000 Avios plus £130 taxes to:
Here are the important things to bear in mind:
The standard price for these redemptions, using ‘cash and Avios’, would be 15,000 Avios plus £160 in taxes. You are therefore only saving £30 per person.
If you choose an ‘all Avios’ redemption, there is no saving.
You need to book by 31st March
You need to travel by 30th June, judging by test bookings I tried
You can only book at avios.com, not via ba.com. If your Avios are sitting in British Airways Executive Club, you need to move them to avios.com using ‘Combine My Avios’.
If you don’t already have an account at avios.com, you will need to open one. Only UK residents can do this.
There is no special code or link. The lower £130 taxes figure will pop out automatically at avios.com when you do a dummy booking.
