Earn 250 Avios per booking with The Fork at 45,000 restaurants in ten European countries

Whilst Avios UK may have recently closed its restaurant booking programme, the company has not given up trying to cash in on the sector.
Avios, via Vueling Club, has teamed up with TripAdvisor’s restaurant booking service The Fork to offer points.
You will earn 250 Avios for every meal for two people booked.
Full details are on the Vueling website here.
The Fork is not currently operating in the UK (a search for lunch in London brought up one restaurant in E14!) but it is active elsewhere. You can use it to book restaurants in:
It will obviously work better in the bigger cities. On the home page it features Paris, Geneva, Madrid, Lyon, Lausanne, Barcelona, Milan, Brussels and Amsterdam so I would assume those are the best covered spots.
Booking is slightly fiddly. You need to use a special landing page for The Fork which is here.
In theory you need to give a Vueling Club account number when you book. In reality, I would guess that any AerClub, avios.com or Vueling Club account number starting in 3081 will work but don’t hold me to that.
If you want to open a Vueling Club account to be sure, you can do it via the Vueling website here. You access your account via avios.com using your Vueling Club log-in details. The Avios can be moved to British Airways via ‘Combine My Avios’ and selecting avios.com as your transfer partner.
You can find out more about The Fork on vueling.com here.
