Earn Avios with Airbnb

You earn 3 Avios per £1/€1/$1 spent at Airbnb.

With your first Airbnb booking, you get an extra bonus of 500 Avios.

The only snag is that you MUST book via the link on  You will not receive any Avios if you go via the standard Airbnb home page.

Get £25 off your first Airbnb booking!

You can also get £25 off your first Airbnb booking by using Anika’s refer a friend link which is here.  There is a minimum spend of £55.

I don’t know if you can do this and earn Avios at the same time, but the £25 discount is a better deal if you can’t.

Earn Avios with Airbnb

Earn 8,000 Avios when you become an Airbnb host!

British Airways is also offering 8,000 Avios when you sign-up to list your property of Airbnb.

You need to sign up via the link on this page.

The 8,000 Avios are received after you have had your first booking.

I don’t recommend this, however, as there is a far more lucrative £230 payment available if you sign up here.
