If you’re heading to Spain this Summer it is worth remembering that you can earn Avios with the Cabify ride-hailing app.
You will get a 400 Avios bonus with your first ride.
Cabify was founded in Spain but has since expanded internationally – you can now use the app in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Uruguay.
Avios can only be earned in Spain, Mexico, Chile and Brazil. Oddly, if you choose to credit Avios to Vueling Club, you can only earn in Spain.
In Spain, you can currently use it in:
- A Coruna
The app can be downloaded from the Apple and Google stores. I have used it a couple of times in Barcelona in recent years and the Avios have always posted OK.
Which Avios programmes work with Cabify?
The Cabify app lets you earn Avios in either Iberia Plus or British Airways Executive Club. Vueling Club is also an option but only for rides in Spain.
In reality, it doesn’t matter which scheme you use as you can move your Avios around via ‘Combine My Avios’.
How many Avios do you earn with Cabify?
You will earn 400 Avios for your first trip and 1 Avios per km after that.
The ‘first ride’ bonus will only be applied if you take a ‘Lite’ or ‘Executive’ vehicle.
