Once in Iberia Plus you can easily move your Avios across to British Airways Executive Club or avios.com via the ‘Combine My Avios’ function online.
Until the end of February, Iberia is offering triple miles on all Hertz rentals. The current deal – 300 Avios per day – is already attractive, so this is very impressive.
Private rentals earn from 300 to 450 Avios per day depending on the size of car rented. Tripled, this will rise to 900 to 1,350 Avios per day.
Rentals booked using a corporate discount code only earn half of the above rates.
You must rent for a minimum of three days to get the ‘triple Avios’ deal. There is a list of 775 ‘qualifying Hertz establishments’ on the website which is impossible to search, but I assume it must cover pretty much every Hertz depot, at least in Europe.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
