If you have a battle pile of Avios, and wanting to get away with them, this weekend British Airways is offering boosts when part-paying with them.
With Avios part payment, you can reduce the cost of a British Airways flight. Even better, for this weekend only your Avios could be worth up to four times more than usual, meaning that somewhere far away just got a lot closer.
If you want to take advantage of this, you have until midnight Monday 23 August.
It’s valid on both one-way and return flights. These range from exchanging 250 Avios for £5 off per person on a one-way or return flight, up to a maximum of 5,000 Avios to save £100 on a return flight.
To be eligible you must be an Executive Club Member with at least 250 Avios.
What do you need to do?
- Log in to your Executive Club account and search for flights.
- Look for your part payment options on the price page once you’ve selected your flights. You will see the options automatically on any eligible flight.
- Select the saving you’d like to make on your flights. The price of your flights will adjust automatically. If you didn’t log in at the start of your flight search, there’s another chance to do so now.
- Continue as usual to complete your booking.
