Upmarket travel agent Abercrombie & Kent has signed up as the latest Avios earning partner.
For any booking made via the company after 7th September, you will receive 2 Avios for every £1 you spend. Given that A&K holidays are not cheap, this could add up to a decent slug of points.
Points will be given on all holiday and villa bookings. Note that the definition of ‘qualifying spend’ for the purposes of calculation your Avios excludes “Air taxes, surcharges, breakage deposits, insurance and credit card charges”.
Interestingly, Abercrombie & Kent is working with all three Avios schemes. You can choose to have your points sent to either a British Airways Executive Club, avios.com or Iberia Plus account.
Points are awarded within 30 days of the departure date for your holiday.
Avios points cannot be earned on bookings made at the A&K concession in Harrods (downstairs, next to the Pharmacy!) but you would earn Harrods Rewards points instead. The Abu Dhabi and Monaco offices are also excluded.
Further details can be found on the Abercrombie & Kent website here.
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.
