Spending Avios

Avios open up a world of possibilities. You can spend them on flights with us and our oneworld® partners, and even use them to treat yourself to a flight upgrade. And if you don't quite have enough Avios or want to save some for later, you can pay using a combination of Avios and money.

Book reward flights

Reward flights are flights paid for using your Avios, plus a cash amount for taxes, fees and carrier charges. You can book them with British Airways and our oneworld partners wherever there is availability. The amount of Avios you need depends on your destination and class of travel.

collapsedshowAlways get the best deal on short haul flights with Reward Flight Saver

Reward Flight Savers are our best-value reward flights. They're available on one-way and return flights with British Airways within Europe and Comair in Southern Africa. While you pay the Avios and a low flat fee, we pay the taxes, fees and carrier charges.

For example, on a flight from London to Paris in Euro Traveller, you would pay a flat fee of £35 instead of the regular taxes, fees and carrier charges.

We'll always show you the Reward Flight Saver fare when it's available — all you need to do to be eligible is to collect at least 1 Avios in the past 12 months.

If you don’t have enough Avios, or would like to save some for your next trip, Avios & Money lets you book rewards with fewer Avios and more money. You can pay with Avios & Money for:

  • reward flights on British Airways and certain partner airlines
  • hotel accommodation (where available)
  • car rental (where available)

You'll be presented with a range of options at the checkout. For example, the options for a one-way reward flight in economy from London to Miami are:

Avios & Money
25,000 + £0 + taxes, fees and charges
22,500 + £20 + taxes, fees and charges
20,000 + £40 + taxes, fees and charges
17,500 + £60 + taxes, fees and charges
15,000 + £80 + taxes, fees and charges
