British Airways’ Avios sale means you can bag flights for half the points

British Airways is giving members of its loyalty programme the chance to bag flights for half the number of Avios points in a new sale.

The airline’s British Airways Executive Club offers Avios as rewards, which travellers can then use on features such as upgrades, hotels, car rental and even part payment on flights.

Now, members of the club (which you can join for free here) can stretch their Avios that little bit further thanks to the sale.

There are currently two deals on offer:

  • World Traveller (long haul economy) and World Traveller Plus (long haul premium economy) seats for 50 per cent less Avios
  • Club World (long haul business class) and First Class seats for 10 per cent less Avios

There are some tempting destinations included too.

For example, you can currently bag return World Traveller tickets to New York for 13,000 Avios, down from 26,000. Alternatively, you can opt for Club World for 90,000 Avios instead of 100,000 Avios.

As part of the sale, members can also enjoy 20 per cent off the amount of Avios needed to book hotels rated 3* or above in New York, Boston, Dubai, Singapore, Johannesburg and Washington.

You can already check out the offers on the British Airways Executive Club website but you’ll need to book by Thursday 21st November when the sale ends.



New York is one of the destinations included in the offer

 

The good news is that the travel window is more generous, with travel dates available until the 30th April 2020.

The deals don’t end there. British Airways is currently offering customers a 50 per cent bonus of Avios if they gift or purchase Avios before the 21st November 2019.

For example, if you choose to purchase or gift 1,000 Avios, you’ll receive a bonus of 500 Avios, and these bonus points can be spent in the same way as normal Avios.
