Aer Lingus AerClub is offering 1,000 bonus Avios when you book a 2+ day Avis car rental.

You must book by 30th June for collection by 12th July.  The deal is valid in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, USA and Canada.

This is on top of the basic 500 Avios (or 3 per €1, whichever is greater) for a 2 day rental, or 700 Avios for a 3+ day rental.

Because this is an AerClub offer, you need to give an AerClub or Vueling Club ‘3081xxxxxxxx’ membership number when booking.

If you don’t have an avios.com account since the Avios Travel Rewards Programme closed, you can open an AerClub account here.  You can log in to the account via avios.com and use ‘Combine My Avios’ to push your Avios to British Airways Executive Club when they arrive.

Full details of this Avis offer are on the Aer Lingus website here.  Please read the small print carefully.
