This article looks at how to earn Avios points from stays at NH Hotels and nhow.
It is now over a decade since Avios was launched and the British Airways and Iberia loyalty schemes given the same ‘currency’.
Whilst efforts have been made to unify the different partners who work with each programme, it has been a slow process. It was only fairly recently that Iberia started working exclusively with Avis as its car hire partner, for example.
One area where there is still inconsistency is with hotel partners.
This leaves NH Hotels and local chain Paradores as the only groups which work with Iberia Plus but not British Airways Executive Club.
