BA EU promo: 30,000 Avios in Club World & 15,000 Avios in World Traveller Plus

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

British Airways is determined that the ‘back to work’ push after the Summer goes with a bang this year – especially as recent trading updates from the major European airlines show a distinct softening in demand.

If you live in Europe – or your British Airways account lives in Europe – this is a very attractive deal.

British Airways BA

Here are the headline terms:

Receive 30,000 bonus Avios for EVERY Club World or First return flight

Receive 15,000 bonus Avios for EVERY World Traveller Plus return flight

Valid on all BA long-haul flights

For flights across the Atlantic to North America, Mexico and Puerto Rico, you can also travel on American, Iberia, US Airways, Finnair or the Openskies services from New York to Paris.

Valid for travel from September 1st to December 19th

Flights must have been booked after August 20th (historically, BA has never imposed this rule even though it always appears)

There is NO LIMIT to the number of times you can earn the bonus

The bonus is on top of the standard Avios you would receive

You MUST register for this promotion or you will not receive the bonus

Your BA account must be based on one of these countries:  Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Libya, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Vatican City State

The registration page is here – you MUST register in order to receive the bonus Avios.

What is very generous about this deal is that pretty much ALL ticket classes count.   In Club World, you can book J, C, D, R or I – these includes the cheap(er) non-refundable tickets.  In World Traveller Plus you can book into W, E or T ticket classes.

WARNING:  If you live in the UK, you could move your British Airways account to a European address to qualify for this offer.  However, you cannot earn Avios with a British Airways American Express card if you account is based outside the UK.  Your Avios would sit with Amex and would not transfer across until your account moved back to the UK.  Your Amex 241 voucher would also be blocked.  You cannot move your account back to the UK for 6 months.

Similarly, you cannot convert Tesco Clubcard points to a BA account based outside the UK.  This is easy to circumvent, however, as you can simply transfer to avios.com instead and then use Combine My Avios to move them across.

  1. Does anyone know what is the last day for registration of this offer? Thanks

  2. Kilburn Flyer says:

    Worth noting that American Airlines are running the same offer for BA flights which means that you could pocket 30,000 AA miles for First/Club World Flight (enough for a free one-way in Etihad Business Class from India – UK for example, with pretty low taxes).

    Same country restrictions apply unfortunately (no UK or Ireland accounts etc…)

  3. They should desrcibe it as “Continental Europe” maybe ….

  4. Would BA take a dim view of accounts that switched for the purposes of claiming from this promotion and then switching back 6 months later?

  5. Anyone wanting to book on ba.com in next few days?
    I have a £500 evoucher for BA?
    £400 and its yours..

    Raffles can have first refusal

  6. As i read it it say that only a transatlantic flights will count.
    Are you sure that other transcontinental flights will count too?

  7. Lady London says:

    Anyone know does the UK get its own similarly valuable promotion later?
    jus’ hoping…

  8. When trying to register I get the error ‘Your registration has been unsuccessful, unfortunately you are not eligible for this offer’

    Any ideas? – my account is new Exec account based in Germany

    • Odd, should be fine – it clearly says new accounts should be OK. Give it 24 hours for the new account to ‘settle’ in the system and then call if necessary.

  9. Was interested to see you say they don’t always the ‘new bookings only rule’. I have 2 CW returns to the states which I booked a few months back and tried to register those, got the same error message. Seems they were more organised this time!

    Has anyone who booked previously had success?
