Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club Tier points with travel agent bookings?

  • war005 1 post

    Hey There, I have been booked through a travel agent for a return flight to Singapore with BA. Would this journey be eligible for Tier Points and Avios? (Outbound in WT (M); Inbound in CW (I)). I have added my EC number to the booking but on manage my booking it just says unable to display information. Many thanks for any help!

    Although the booking classes you have identified might ostensibly entitle you to TP and Avios, those booking classes are not the sole determinant of eligibility, so you can’t be sure when booking with an OTA as they can have special deals that book into those classes but are stripped of the reward benefits.

    My work travel doesn’t show TPs/ Avios until it has been ticketed – easiest way to see is in the app.
    Look at “my bookings” then click to
    opem the flight, there is a Ticket Number field at the bottom.

    If booked in last few days it might be blank, otherwise shows a number usually starting 125-

    Ineligible flights (eg reward flights and non-earning fare classes on other airlines) show 0TPs/ 0 Avios from experience.

    With BA you will always get tier points and Avios, however booked. This is not always the case with other airlines.
