If you’re heading to Spain soon 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 and Chile. 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 used it a couple of times in Barcelona pre-Covid and the Avios 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.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 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:
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.
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.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
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.
