It was partly out of date before it went live, as the Italian Government published a law on Saturday night to place a quarter of the country under quarantine.
As of Sunday evening, British Airways has cancelled for Monday:
all flights to Venice
10/11 flights to Milan
the one flight to Bergamo
This is the new BA guidance for anyone with tickets to Italy. I ran this in a separate article yesterday but wanted to repeat it here for the benefit of our email readers.
That said, if all flights are now cancelled, the guidance doesn’t make much difference!
Here are the rules:
Rules apply to anyone travelling to Milan, Venice, Turin, Bergamo, Bologna, Verona
If you are booked for travel until 4th April, you can rebook for free for dates up to 31st May
You can also request a diversion to Zurich or Geneva
Here is the new bit added during Sunday:
Anyone with tickets to Milan, Venice or Bergamo for travel by 4th April can now request a full refund
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (January 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
SPECIAL OFFER: Until 21st February 2023, the sign-up bonus on the British Airways Premium Plus American Express card is increased to 35,000 Avios from 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
SPECIAL OFFER: Capital On Tap has increased its sign-up bonus to points worth 30,000 Avios if you apply by 4th February. This is exclusive to Head for Points readers. Click here to apply.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
