With the British Airways Credit Card, you can collect Avios even when you are not flying

Boost your Avios balance with the card that gives you the best Avios earn rate in South Africa and much more

Our credit card is welcomed in more places than any other. And because you collect Avios whenever you make a purchase, you’ll soon be welcomed in more places too. You could earn up to 9,000 bonus Avios on your first purchases, that’s already enough for a return flight from Johannesburg to Durban or even Victoria Falls*.
