Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Off for Easter?  A Travelex / Avios reminder ….

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

If you are heading off for Easter soon, remember that Travelex has relaunched as an Avios partner.  You can now earn points but only when you buy in advance via this special link on your foreign currency orders.

Travelex lets you pre-order over 40 currencies and collection is available with as little as four hours notice.

Travelex Avios

This is what you need to know:

Collect 1 Avios for every £1 when exchanging over £300

Collect 1 Avios for every £2 when exchanging below £300

You must pre-order via the Travelex website here, for airport collection, for Travelex store collection or delivery.  (If you get a ‘Your session has expired’ message, ignore it – you can fill in your order details in the box below it.)

You can credit your Avios to BA, Iberia Plus or avios.com

Avios will be added within 14 days of collection or delivery

Compare the Travelex pricing with and without Avios as it can vary.

If you are looking for a 0% credit card to use abroad, remember that you can still apply for the Lloyds Avios Rewards card (my review with full details is here) if you ring up or apply in branch.  Online applications are now suspended.  I also recommend Curve Card – details here – which, whilst it has a 1% fee, will recharge your purchases to any other Visa or Mastercard rewards card you have.
