This is a very quick post as I am due at an event at World Travel Market in 5 minutes!
The short haul deal covers 10 European routes.
You need to book your seat before midnight on November 17th and travel before January 31st.
You will pay the usual Avios price but the taxes charge is reduced by £34 to just £1.
The list of participating routes is here. They are all in the 15,000 to 20,000 Avios per seat band which means they are generally ‘Winter sun’ routes. Only economy seats are available.
The long haul deal covers 35 routes.
The number of Avios required for World Traveller (ie economy) seats is reduced by HALF on 30 routes and by a quarter on the remaining five. The taxes figure is unchanged, however.
The booking and travel dates are the same as for the short haul offer.
The list of routes is here. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are included if the Winter weather is getting you down this week.
Not sure if these can be booked via avios.com or if you need to move your points over to British Airways Executive Club first.
Seats are available for booking now. Full analysis tomorrow. Right, off to my meeting ….
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
