Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

You probably need to have a look at Rob’s excellent series of articles on here about how a couple can earn a decent amount of avios as you’ll need quite a lot for 4 of you, at least in a premium cabin. Most people find it easier to earn avios than Virgin points so that would be my personal recommendation, but a lot of people also much prefer Virgin over BA so it depends on what your priorities are!

I’d need to double check, but I don’t think having a cash back card would bar you from getting the BAPP or Platinum Amex sub. There’s also the avios Barclaycard and the Virgin Mastercard (which might have a sign up bonus at the moment). Have a trawl through the recent credit card articles here as well.
