Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

20% discount code for all Flybe flights from January to March

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

Flybe recently became an Avios partner.  This means that you can earn Avios points whenever you fly with them with the amount based on the price of your ticket.

(You can also redeem Avios points for Flybe tickets as I explain here.  This can only be done via, not  Reward Flight Saver is not available with Flybe so you may be a little shocked by the taxes required.)

If you fly with Flybe on a regular basis, you will be pleased to know that it is offering a 20% discount on tickets booked by Thursday 12th December.

All travel must be completed between Monday 5th January and Saturday 28th March.

You need to use Flybe promotional code WINTER20-5 on

The discount does not apply to Loganair or Stobart Air operated flights although it does apply to the routes Flybe operates on behalf of Air France.  Slightly surprisingly, the 20% discount applies to the entire ticket price including taxes and charges.   Tickets can be booked at here.

  • Stephan says:

    Darn just booked a flight with flybe yesterday!

    • Mark B says:

      Me too although via Avios, where presumably the 20% discount (on the cash balance) doesn’t apply

      • Andrew says:

        What were the taxes like Vs full fare? Ive been unable to find avios value in any flight i wanted to take…

        • markb says:

          Full fare for 2 Birmingham to Berlin in Feb £176 v Avois 9,000 points + £64.56 so a saving of £111, good enough for me, I think even had I got £20% off the full fare I would have still gone for it

    • Matt says:

      If it’s within 24 hours – cancel at no charge and rebook!

      • Stephan says:

        Damn booked in the morning. Oh well will remember that for next time. Only £35 for the fare so not a huge loss. Thanks for the tip. Is this airline specific?

  • John Ritchie says:

    Just tried a dummy booking and cannot see anywhere to enter this code on flybe website. Can it be clarified where to enter this code I presume I have missed it? Thanks.

  • Jimmyjimmy says:

    Has anyone had Flybe flights post to their Avios account as yet? 5 weeks since my flight probably time to start chasing.

    • Think Square says:

      So not just me then. You definitely need to start chasing:

      “3.13 If you believe that you are due to be awarded Avios for a recent flight that have not been deposited to your account within 30 days of completing your Eligible Flybe Flight, you can contact the Flybe Customer Service team for investigation. You have up to 40 days from completing their Eligible Flybe Flight to query your Avios application. In the event that you do not make a claim within the specified period, any Avios that are not claimed will be lost.”

  • Think Square says:

    Has anyone had any Avios credited for a flybe flight yet? I’ve had 3 flights over the past month but no sign of Avios.

  • Elena-MuslimTravelGirl says:

    Grr, I need to be a Flybe flight from Amsterdam in December with 20% it would have been dead cheap.
