Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win 100,000 Avios with Avis – simply fill in a form

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

If all goes to plan, we should have a fantastic competition to win a very large pile of Avios exclusively for Head for Points readers over the next week or so.

In the meantime, you might want to have a look at this Avios / Avis competition to win 100,000 Avios points.

It has been knocking around for a few weeks but I missed it until yesterday.  The deadline for entries is Wednesday 30th so don’t hang around.

Entering is easy.  All you need to do is visit this website and fill in your name and address.  Note that the (optional) box for your Avios account number is for an avios.com number and not a British Airways Executive Club one.

No purchase is required and you don’t need to have rented from Avis recently either.

There is no need to watch the video, but it has lots of nice Irish scenery in it – but not many jokes.  Sorry Jarlath ….
