The British Airways Executive Club has partnered with Nectar to make life even more rewarding. Now you can convert Nectar points into Avios and vice versa. So it couldn't be easier to collect more points, more adventures – and more stories.
Simply link your Executive Club and Nectar accounts and you’re ready to go. After that, you’re free to convert your points – starting from 400 Nectar points into 250 Avios, or vice versa.
Once you’re done, redeem your points and fly away, or spend away. It’s that easy.
How you swap is up to you. You can choose to convert Nectar points into Avios or Avios into Nectar points. Either way, the choice of great rewards is yours.
You can even set up a weekly automatic conversion so that every time you reach 400 Nectar points they will be automatically turned into 250 Avios. Simply log into your account and click ‘Convert now’ to set-up automatic conversion and never miss out on Avios again.
Collecting Nectar points is as easy as doing your everyday shopping with Sainsbury’s, Argos, eBay, Esso – and many more. Check out the Nectar app for the latest bonus offers and your points will soon add up.
You can choose to set up auto-conversion. Every week we will convert your entire balance, in your chosen direction, up to the automatic exchange limit. Balances will be converted in increments of 400 Nectar points or 250 Avios.
Avios are converted in increments of 250 Avios and Nectar points in increments of 400. The minimum number of points you can exchange are 250 Avios and 400 Nectar points.
You can convert up to a maximum of 50,000 Avios or 80,000 Nectar points per calendar month.
We’ll automatically convert up to a maximum of 25,000 Avios or 40,000 Nectar points per quarter in a calendar year.
Yes you can. Just cancel your original auto-conversion, and then re-join changing the direction you wish to convert.
Yes, as long as they are within the quarterly and monthly limits as outlined above. The limits are independent of one another.
Yes, each individual Executive Club account member can link to a Nectar account.
No, any member can link.
Yes, any account holder can link – but each Nectar card can only be linked to one Executive Club account. Therefore, each card holder must link to a different Executive Club account.
This is dependent on independent campaign Terms and Conditions.
You can collect Nectar points with any other Nectar collection partner, see Nectar website for collection partners. You can collect Avios with any other Avios collection partner, visit here for collection partners.
No you can’t use Avios in Sainsbury’s stores, unless of course you’ve converted to Nectar points.
The last four digits of the account you’re linked to will feature in the Nectar email you received when you linked. Your British Airways Executive Club number will also be displayed when logged in on the Nectar or Executive Club Exchange page.
Points are usually converted within minutes. However, you may have received a ‘pending message’ when converting. Please keep checking your Executive Club Account or Nectar Account to see if your points have been correctly added.
If it’s been longer than 24 hours and the points are not showing, please contact us on 0344 811 0811 for Nectar and raise a missing Avios form for BA.
You can simply complete a manual conversion in the opposite direction to get your points back - so long as you’re within your monthly manual exchange limit.
If your Nectar points have been converted without your permission, please contact Nectar on 0344 811 0811.
If it’s your Avios that have been converted without your permission, please contact the Executive Club.
While British Airways Executive Club make some background system changes to the way members convert their Avios to Nectar we are temporarily asking customers to contact the British Airways call centre should they wish to make this conversion. Third party nominees within a British Airways Executive Club account cannot make exchanges. Monthly caps will apply at the point the order is credited and debited (e.g. if a customer raises an order on 25 March 2021 and the order is processed on 5 April 2021, the April points cap will apply).
