You earn 3 Avios per £1/€1/$1 spent at Airbnb.
The only snag is that you MUST book via a dedicated link on ba.com. You will not receive any Avios if you go via the standard Airbnb home page.
The terms and conditions state that you will receive your Avios within 60 days of completing your stay.
In a recent change, you can also now earn Avios for booking Airbnb Experiences.
These are, to quote:
“Enjoy unique experiences designed and hosted by locals that go beyond typical tours or workshops. Experiences offer guests the chance to explore new places and cultures – both virtually or in-person.”
You will earn 3 Avios for every £1/€1/$1 spent on Airbnb Experiences.
You can find out more about the general offer, including the detailed terms and conditions, on the Airbnb page of ba.com here.
