At some point recently, but with no PR announcement, Kerzner International Resorts was added as an Avios-earning partner with British Airways Executive Club.
The name may not ring a bell at first glance, but you will be familiar with its major properties.
Atlantis The Palm, Dubai (click for more details) is one of the leading family resorts in the world (photo below)
One&Only operates a number of very high-end luxury resorts in The Bahamas, Mexico, Mauritius, The Maldives, South Africa, Australia and Dubai.
One&Only Reethi Rah in The Maldives is generally regarded as the best resort there, whilst the One&Only on The Palm in Dubai is generally seen as the 2nd best property after the Four Seasons. One&Only Cape Town is an excellent inner-city resort on the Waterfront.
Mazagan is a golf and beach resort in Morocco
All of these properties will give you 2 Avios per $1 spent with them. This is only on accommodation – incidental spend on food and drink will not count.
You will need to book directly with the hotels to receive Avios. Package holidays or bookings via third parties such as Expedia will not count.
You can find out more by visiting the British Airways Executive Club hotel partners page and clicking on the Kerzner box.
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.
