British Airways has unveiled a range of Avios hotel promotions for people who prefer to earn Avios rather than hotel points when they stay.
Full details of all of these offers can be found on the ‘News and Offers’ Executive Club pages on ba.com.
Here are the deals:
Accor (Novotel, Sofitel, Ibis, Mercure) – TRIPLE Avios for stays before 10th April. However, you should do this promotion via Iberia Plus instead as I wrote here, due to the higher earning rate.
Shangri-La – double Avios on a two night stay, triple avios on a three night stay and quadruple avios on a four night stay when booking at the Best Available Rate for stays before 29th February
and finally, Langham.
Langham is offering double Avios when you book a ‘Linger Longer’ package at any of their hotels. You need to use code BAYE15LL and book and stay by 29th February.
Free Club upgrade at The Langham Hotel, London
If you were thinking about staying at The Langham in London, there is another deal which may interest you.
The Langham Hotel in Portland Place, just off Oxford Street, has recently completed a major refurbishment. I had a tour of The Langham when the project was partly complete and was impressed. The Langham also supported a Head for Points competition a while ago.
With the refurbishment now complete, the executive lounge has moved upstairs and looks great:
Via this offer, you can get free access to the lounge on your next stay before 31st March.
British Airways Executive Club Gold members can join the ‘1865’ loyalty scheme directly at ‘Voyager’ level which is almost top tier. I wrote about the British Airways / Langham 1865 tie-up 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.
