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

This is your reminder that the British Airways Executive Club / Hotels.com offer is still running for a few more days.

Hotels.com and British Airways Executive Club now have a direct earning relationship, allowing you to earn Avios with every hotel booking.  In order to earn Avios, you need to book via this special link – hotels.com/britishairways.

Until 7th June, you will earn 8 Avios for every £1 spent at Hotels.com as long as you choose not to collect Hotels.com Rewards credits.  The standard rate, from 8th June, is 6 Avios per £1.

You earn a lower rate of 4 Avios for every £1 spent at Hotels.com if you book whilst logged in, or if you create an account during the booking process, as you will be earning Hotels.com Rewards credit as well.  The standard rate, from 8th June, is 3 Avios per £1 if you take Hotels.com Rewards credit as well.

Our article from two weeks ago can help you decide which option is best for you.
