    So I need to book two return tickets to Italy. P2 has the basic voucher but is just 3000 avios short.

    Rather than pay for a transfer of avios to her is there a no cost workaround other than a household account?

    What’s wrong with a good old HHA?

    For 3,000 avios you’d arguably be better of buying at £69 then paying £50 to move from one to the other.

    Does P2 not have any boostable avios?

    I second the above, but have you also look at different payment options when doing a dummy booking – there may be a combination of cash/avios which suits you without having to source the extra avios?

    Thanks all. Transpires you can choose different points/cash payment options with the BA Basic voucher, went for the £40 option, lowest cost, least faff.

    I wonder if the Premium voucher or the BC voucher allows you to do the same?

    Lol, that’s what I posted yesterday! BAPP voucher and all other avios bookings offer similar options EXCEPT the Barclays voucher, where you have to pay max avios, min cash.
