The more you get the cheaper they are. Can you not read OP? £1615 for 135000 miles, which isn't bad if you use companion voucher on first class flight

You can get a companion voucher with BA Amex cards, short version is you need to spend £20,000 on the fee-free Amex within 1 year to get a companion voucher (doubles the value of your Avios, therefore a flight for 2 will cost the same number of Avios as a flight for one - but you'll still need to pay taxes for both passengers), or alternatively you need to spend £10k within 1 year on the premium BA Amex (with a £195 per year fee).

The positives with the latter are you receive 1.5 Avios points per £1 as opposed to 1 per £1 spend with the fee-free one, and if you hit your target sooner than expected, then you can downgrade to the fee-free card and receive a refund (pro-rata) for the fee paid. The fee is charged to the card upfront so if you manage to get to the £10k spend before the end of month 6 you'll receive half the money back.

The companion voucher is valid for 2 years from the date you are allocated it.

No problem, glad you found it useful!!

Also, you get much better value going for business or first class flights rather than economy or premium economy, worth googling it to find out but an economy flight to New York could cost about £400 per person in taxes plus avios but business would be £550 per person in taxes plus avios, the monetary difference might be around about £4K difference per person!

Really useful info, I have just checked our avios household, around 250K, must look into business class flights to Melbourne, wish to visit family there sometime 2018... thanks for the heads up! Much appreciated!

An added note: A 135k mile flight for 2 would cost you about £1615 in Avios, £1000 in taxes for 2 people and you be stuck with trying to get reward seats which is 2 per flight. (This all assumes business class flights) Last year BA Business class sale there were lots of locations for £1300 and same with Qatar Airways. This all depends on people have sales though.

Not saying yours is a good or bad comment, just there maybe better alternatives per individual circumstance.

Any place you can sell avios miles?

I wish, I have over 100k of them and never spend them!

Avios.com offer is even worse than BA offer which is flat 50% bonus. having said that avios@1.17pence is still expensive. Groupon spain avios offer was .97pence/avios and Ventee Privee france avios offer is .87pence/avios
