One of the best Avios spending promotions in a while has sprung upon us.
For bookings between 6th – 19th October 2015 you are able to redeem your Avios at a solid 1.67p each by part paying your Club World and First Class ticket on selected routes, with a maximum cash reduction of £500 per person in exchange for 30 000 Avios. My usual valuation is between 0.8p-1p each.
The booking period runs between and travel is extremely generous as you can travel between 6th October 2015 – 30th September 2016. Don't forget you will also get the usual tier points and Avios on your sectors as these are revenue booking classes.
The part pay discounts are as follows:
|Avios part payment amount per person||Saving per person|
The routes for which the promotion applies are:
Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Bangkok, Beijing, Bengaluru, Chengdu Shuangliu, Chicago, Dallas – Forth Worth, Delhi Indira Ghandi International, Dubai, Hong Kong, Houston, Hyderabad, JFK, Kuala Lumpur International, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Montreal, Mumbai, Newark, Philadelphia International, San Francisco International, Seoul, Shanghai Pudong, Singapore Changi, Toronto, Vancouver, Washington.
Here is the official BA promotion page. It might even be worthwhile combining this discount with a tier point run. If you're short. Be wary that if you are trying the ‘mega TP run routes‘ in North America, you will need to book them on through AA which means you cannot capitalise on the part pay with Avios promotion.
