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.
