Who wouldn’t want more Avios?

Many airlines made their loyalty programs more difficult during the pandemic, but British Airways chose instead to make some fantastic, user friendly changes. For a start, there’s more seats using points available on each and every flight, which British Airways guarantees for people hoping to use Avios

For example, there’s now at least four ‘Club World’ business class seats using Avios guaranteed on all long haul flights, up from two, and on many other flights there are 8 seats guaranteed using points! 

That just leaves one issue: having enough points. Fortunately, there’s one of the best ever bonuses when you buy Avios, with up to 50% extra, making topping off more lucrative than usual. 

50% Bonus On Avios Purchases

British Airways is offering a tiered bonus on Avios purchases, which helps bring the cost of buying points and topping up for a trip down significantly. Avios can be huge for upgrading from Premium Economy to ‘Club World’ Business Class, and also for making Avios bookings outright. 

If you’ve got a British Airways companion voucher, paying a little bit to top off your Avios can make lots of sense, since it can take both you and your companion further, and in better style!

For two weeks, from the 21st of June to the 4th of July, British Airways is offering an exclusive bonus on Avios purchases, with a tiered opportunity. Basically, the more you buy, the more you benefit! Here’s how it breaks down. 

  • Buying 1,000 – 8,000 Avios = 30% bonus
  • Buying 10,000 – 90,000 Avios = 40% bonus
  • Buying 100,000 – 200,000 Avios = 50% bonus

Should You Buy Avios Points?

I am a big fan of collecting as many points as possible, because I can just about always find ways to spend them. Topping up Avios can create more opportunity to fly first class, rather than business class, or take the whole family for less, rather than just fly solo. 

In times where travel planning can be challenging, Avios can actually be a great way to book, as well. Seats are available 355 days in advance, and your Avios don’t expire if you purchase, collect or spend at least 1 Avios every 36 months!

Avios bookings can also be cancelled for a modest £35 fee, provided they are cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of travel. This is far more flexible than many other ways to book, allowing you to dream big, without the worry.
