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:
- You must book by 14th December
- You must pick up your rental between 2nd January and 28th February
- Your rental must be made via a BA channel, including the dedicated car rental site here, and include a British Airways discount code (this is included by default when booking online)
- 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.
