Avios has announced a new partnership with chauffeur group Tristar. You will now earn points with every Tristar booking you make, at the rate of 2 Avios points per £1 spent.
This is an avios.com partnership and NOT a British Airways Executive Club deal. You will need to give an avios.com number when booking and, if you wish, move the points over to BA via ‘Combine My Avios’ online.
Whilst you may not know the Tristar name, they are used by Virgin Atlantic, Etihad and Emirates at Heathrow to provide their chauffeur services to business class passengers.
You can book their services at all major UK airports and at 80 airports worldwide.
Avios is running a competition to promote this new partnership, although it is nothing to get excited about. Five people who earn Avios from Tristar before 30th September will each win 1,000 Avios points. Calm down at the back ….
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.
