A few weeks ago, we took advantage of a part pay with avios deal, where your miles went twice as far. It was so recent, I haven’t actually had time to do much of a write up apart from reviewing the new Dubai BA Lounge.
Part Pay With Avios as a system has been around for a few years, but has had some restrictive caps in place which really limited the potential. In true British Airways style, they have been fiddling with fare deals to see what works and doesn’t work, this time allowing the miles you contribute towards flights being worth a little more than usual, giving you better value.
The break down of the deal is as follows, based on cabin
- Euro Traveller (short haul economy) – maximum saving of £150 for 15,000 Avios
- Club Europe (short haul business) – maximum saving of £150 for 15,000 Avios
- World Traveller (long haul economy) – maximum saving of £150 for 15,000 Avios
- Club World (business) and First class– maximum saving of £300 for 30,000 Avios
The top value i see here is the Club Europe savings, especially if you are in need of Tier Points to earn/retain status with OneWorld. Also, can earn up to 2000 airmiles back, just for taking the flight!
Fares aren’t restricted, although you must book by 17th May and travel by 30th September, so it’s an ideal chance to book a summer holiday at a reduced rate!
