Avis, the exclusive British Airways car rental partner (alongside its sister company Budget), has launched a new promotion.
If you are willing to book in advance for Spring 2022, you will receive 50% bonus Avios. This takes your earning rate up to 7.5 Avios per £1.
Here is the small print:

- Not valid on Prestige, van or chauffeur drive rentals
You will also receive 1,000 bonus Avios on your first Avis rental after signing up for the Avis Preferred loyalty programme – details on the BA / Avis site.
