LAST CALL: earn up to 10,000 Avios with your household, business or landlord insurance

EDIT:  The offers in this article have been extended to 30th September 2017

As you only have a few days left to take advantage of their generous introductory deal, I wanted to give another mention today to a new partner – insurance broker Alan Boswell.  If your insurance is due this month you may want to give them a call.

For the first couple of months of their Avios partnership, they have been offering some very attractive bonuses if your household insurance is coming up for renewal.

If you have a buy to let property, you can also pick up a large pile of Avios points when you take out landlord insurance.  You will also earn points if you take out business insurance for your company.

This is what you can earn:

5,000 Avios per policy priced below £500

10,000 Avios per policy priced above £500

These are special introductory offers which run until next Tuesday 15th August.  Beyond that date, you will earn 2,500 Avios for a sub-£500 policy and 5,000 Avios for a £500+ policy.

Because this is an offer, the points will be placed into an account.  You can move them across to British Airways Executive Club using the ‘Combine My Avios’ feature on either website.

Alan Boswell Avios

As a specialist insurance broker, Alan Boswell will give you best quote it can from the wide range of underwriters it works with.  This means that it is very likely that it will be competitive with your current insurance quote as you will be getting the lowest price from across a wide range of providers.

If you have a buy to let property, landlord insurance appears to be a tax deductible expense.  A business insurance policy is obviously also deductible.  This means that it would even be worth paying a little more than your current provider if you could secure 5,000 or 10,000 Avios on top.

How to buy

The system is a little fiddly, I admit.

For business and household insurance, you need to ring Alan Boswell for a quote.  The details can be found on this page of their website.

For landlord insurance, you can get a quote and purchase online via their website.

The value of the 5,000 Avios or 10,000 Avios should make them competitive.  The ‘double Avios’ offer runs until next Tuesday.  Hopefully they will continue to run promotions for people whose policies are not up for renewal until later in the year.  I will continue to give them a nudge as this is one of those offers that you are likely to forget about until your have a policy renewing.

  1. Thanks to this heads-up a few weeks ago, I have just renewed a landlord policy and a household policy with them this year. The premiums were a bit cheaper than my renewal quotes, even though one is with the same company, and the 10k avios were in my account within about 10 days.

  2. I’m not sure about the household policies being cheaper – I ran an identical quote via Admiral and it was over £200 cheaper than Alan Boswell. For 5000 Avios it just wasn’t worth it.

  3. Thanks, just got my renewal through and these guys have saved me around £80 plus I get some avoid! Thanks!

    Please note that the ‘Landlord insurance’ that qualifies for AVIOS is only applicable for freeholders, not leaseholders. If you are a leaseholder and wish to cover content of the rented flat, such policy would not qualify for Avios!

    • Stephen says:

      That wasn’t obvious when I was getting quotes, but it was a no go anyway, as they won’t offer buildings insurance for flats (and the contents only premiums were comparable to my existing insurer that does include buildings).

  5. Wally1976 says:

    OT – there was a short-ish piece about BA’s cost cutting on Newsnight last night. If anyone wants to catch it, it starts about 18 minutes into the programme.

  6. Wally1976 says:

    On topic – if your insurance isn’t coming up for renewal just yet, contact Alan Boswell and they will freeze the offer rate for you until you’re ready to get a quote.

  7. Very much OT but hoping to draw on the knowledge of the readership.

    Does anyone have knowledge of F to TLV in BA. Am reading conflicting info that some of the 777-200s (with 17 F seats) have old First, entertainment is on a loop etc.

    Can anyone provide any knowledge of the aircraft that normally fly this route?


    • Jack,
      Don’t know if you are still looking. But those lucky enough to find they were in the older F class beds were being offered a compensation of around 100,000 avios pp per sector, “to make up for the dissontment,” last year. Don’t know if BA are still doing that. But several posters here got the avios, which more than made up for the older beds. Some posters here ended up with an extra kitty of 400,000 avios. Saying that we flew in those and they have still a quite luxurious feel to the cabin. In fact we thought they were quite lovely. Each to their own. Of course the newer 8 bed cabins are now more spacious, but more like QR J cabins now though. This may not apply to shorter routes, however…
      Am sure someone more knowledgable than me can enlighten you. Good luck.

  8. We took out a policy earlier in the year. Initial quote from Alan Boswell was a lot more expensive, however they matched the quote that we got elsewhere so it is still worth asking. A nice little bonus 5,000 avios, especially when the policy will be offset against tax!
