No, it’s worth a lot more.


I booked Doha-London on BA in First Class at a cost of 68000 Avios. Got it for £210 (10x 9000 Avios promotion flights) + €218.43 euros tax, the current selling price for the one way fare is actually £4547.




A Lot if you know how to use them


Thank you!

BA Avios - Reward Flight Sale for Economy - World Traveller - half the avios required

Yes agree with you on that, obviously they have had to try and cut costs to temper the rise in the ‘no-frills’ airline but they aren’t quite at that level of standard.


British airways have gone downhill. They cram in more seats, try economy passengers like dirt and avios for flights can cost more in taxes than booking a flight elsewhere. Used to be my airline of choice, now I might put them before Ryanair but after easyjet. Customer service is not yet as bad as Tui but it's going that way - you get an answer that suggests they havent read the email. Premium economy in BA is now maybe equivalent to economy with emirates.


Yes Agree im over 50 so can agree with you that the standards have declined regarding hot meals then sandwiches and baggage but to compare them with the (poo) that is ryanair etc is just not true i could list 10 things better with BA then the bucket airlines and these are major things.


Never had this problem always off asap and security is excellent and to my front door takes about 40 mins, but as you say it's more a business oriented airport than for leisure flights and it would be annoying to me if this happens regularly for me when on business.


I’ve flown BA for the last 20 years and I can assure you they have declined in standards from how they used to be. I can remember the days of domestic flights having a hot meal, then it changed to a cold meal, then a sandwich, then a pack of pretzels and now you have to pay for a M&S sandwich. Avios is pretty useless in my eyes. When you factor in UK taxes and trying to actually find any rewards flights you’re best off just buying the flights direct. I’m off to California with Virgin at the front over the summer and I don’t think I’ll be back with BA.

Is it better to have this or the 1% cashback card? Is there a usual monetary value the avios equates to?

We are a family with 1 child, very soon to be 4. We leave ours at grandma's and stay at the Holiday Inn when visting. You can get 2 kids in most hotel rooms if they are in a cot still. Going forward I am saving Avios and then you can book hotels and you can book room type too. We had a nice big room at an Intercontinental all booked with Avios.


Will definitely consider it later. But now a family with 2 young children, I guess is impossible to get a room for 4 people, or 4 free drinks at check-in LOL! Thanks for your recommendation anyway :)


Yes I do, IF you pay for a IHG hotel anyway at £99+ then there is no fee technically as you get a free night. Most people pick an IC hotel in London and get £250 value out of the free night. We would just be staying there because it's free (£99) so we spend it on a hotel we need during expensive time of year. Last year it was a Holiday Inn at £105. You get status with the card which gets you a pint and some nuts so that's £5 value every time you check in. We stay quite a lot of times a year at a Holiday Inn so make use of the free drink/s, sometimes you get 2 at check in. You are meant ot get other benefits like early and late check out but realistically you can just ask the hotel without status and normally get them. Also you are meant to get room upgrades but I haven't had any so far so don't count on it.


Are you using this as well? Perhaps is good for places that don’t accept Amex.... still not really a fans of pay card fees....


How about an IHG card - £99 fee but you get a free night after a year if you spend 10k so book an expensive room to make the most of it. You get Platinum status so get a free drink at check in. Spend £37.5k and get spire status, no difference really but 25k points bonus.

Dehero I was going to signpost HFP myself. 5years in and going strong!


Agree! First went first with Avios for our Honeymoon to NYC, bargain when combined with Amex companion voucher. I've since been a few times in F and have managed to not fly below CW since, that won't last forever though! If I keep flying for work the way I do though then my miles will keep racking up. Although only got 205k at the moment so not anywhere near what I had at maximum! And to reiterate, using them for WT redemptions are really bad value. Read the headforpoints.com website for tips on the best way to spend them. It will explain everything you need to know.


Bad idea to fly BA in the first place.


Don't trade them for Avios until you have a very clear plan about how you would use them (i.e Avios / cash cost of where you want to go; whether it is good value compared to a straight cash fare and using the Clubcard vouchers for other uses etc). Never use Avios on hotels and other services as the value per point offered is terrible.


As Portillos states, if you're going to fly economy, then long-haul ex-DUB on Aer Lingus is just about the only way you'll get reasonable value for your Avios as you're not getting ripped off with BA level service charges and taxes. If you're looking short haul then Reward Flight Saver fares (i.e within Europe) still offer >1p/avios value, as well as short haul overseas routes with no or low taxes (e.g internal flights in US, Japan).

Get dealGet deal

FWIW I have had a few Amex cards over the years - but pay annual fees only on my Plat Cashback card and thats a much more palatable 25 quid a year - which is more than made up during the shop small promotion alone. The other paid cards I have had I keep them for a year (as usually the membership is free on the first year) and then close them down. Did that with the Gold Card - that had a membership cashback/bonus of roughly 125£ on a spend of 2k - this was just before Xmas so did all of Xmas shopping/gifts/London tube travel etc. on that to get over the line. Then followed the same with the Amex Nectar Card last year when Nectar+Amex combined were giving 40k nectar points - which translates to 200 without the double up - closed it earlier this month after using it for a year. The BA Amex card is free so that one I hold on to - and use it when there are promo offers, avios bonus etc which I load to my BA account for some free-ish flights to Europe. Hope this helps.


Do people who own an Amex card feel they actually get any value from it considering the £140 annual fee ? I'd like to hear people's opinions please


Don't add the offer and a low take up on the offer and they may change it to 10%. We all need the points!


Point taken :)


I like to use my Amex but this site is about saving money and that is a better option. I know Zeek quite well and selling unwanted gift cards is a small chunck of their business via the private chanel their core business is the resale of discounted gift cards.

You’re right, its been extended and the deal reactivated. Thanks


Why is this expired? The 500 mile offer is valid until the end of November. http://www.miles-and-more.com/online/portal/mam/us/program/news/detail?nodeid=1516836176&l=en&cid=1000390


Yeah seems weird, I used the calculator on their app and it came with that figure thought it was weird because London to Edinburgh is 400 odd miles or 800 in a return I asked Lufthansa what was wrong as when I went to book it was 7,000 miles they said they didn’t have a bloody clue(lol) But I will delete that comment but good deal nevertheless


Only 500 miles for a flight?! Are you sure about that? I think the minimum points required is 15,000... You'll earn another 500 miles if you fly Edi to London.

Avatardeleted912245Get dealGet deal

depends on the redemption you select, but you can get over 1pence for each one, can be as much as 2p. Depending where you buy them from, you can get them for 0.75p (0.0075) or if you use part pay as cheap as 0.55p (0.0055). I value you them just over 1pence, but it all depends on the flight taken... Example 9,000 avios from LHR to a number of european places plus 35 which is normally a 150-200 return ticket... while MAN to BLL is bookable last minute for 250 to 350 pounds or the same 9,000 avios (35pounds cash). If you were going to fly with a low cost carrier, then it's not always worth it. Info above is 50% mine and 50% from headforpoints.... If you are using your avios abroad on 5th freedom flights or partners - this is when you get great value.... Example - AMS (easy to get to with a low cost carrier) to Hong Kong 60,000 miles and less than 100 pounds return - business is 180,000 miles and 101pounds return Another example is 50,000 miles plus less than 40 pounds from Europe to Japan (return)... When you can get 20,000-30,000 for free for signing up a credit card... you can see you get great value... it's like 13pounds from the mainland states to Hawaii as well... Sorry a bit more info than what you wanted, but hope this helps...


theres no actual value but you can buy 1000 avios for £31 on their website


18000 points for London to rome is possible. Less than 1p per point on average in my experience

Just finished messaging with Bud. I went through a few things with them (screenshots, URLs, etc).

Have a look at Headforpoints.com and learn what you can do with them... Generally flights within Europe they are not always a good deal especially if a low cost carrier goes that route. If you use your miles right they can get you a long way, from memory it's only about 15 pounds from Dallas to Hawaii for one example. Also look at flights from Dublin or Madrid if you want to fly long haul... Cuba for an example is 42,500 Avios + 147.58 € or Business class is 85,000 Avios + 167.58 € When you can get sign up bonuses of 20k+ you can make your miles go a long way! How many points do you have? PS some flights like MAN > BLL are worth it as tickets are 200+ and only 35 return with avios


;) IOnly way i collect avios is my credit card. I always find cheaper flights than ba so i dont really use tgat often and it would take years to collect those avios point to pay for a full flight


Absolutely not. Much better value using for a full flight redemption rather than 'money off' your cash booking. Better still to combine with the BA Amex 2-for-1 avios voucher in premium cabins. I spent 177k airmiles using one of these for 2 first class flights to Tokyo, return in Business next year - Cash fare now for same flight is £18,500 (redic).


(skeptical) (skeptical) What does it mean? It is given how much avois points are worth. What a silly comment

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


Any place you can sell avios miles?


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. :)

Thanks OP... have flight at end of Feb... " you are now registered for this offer" Never went for BA Silver - always stuck on Blue (nothing), since Silver doesn't mean anything either.

Your outward flight must be before the voucher expires, so you don't have long to use it.


any tips for using the 2-4-1 companion vouchers you get after hitting a certain spend on ba amex. my voucher expires in march..


Kind of misread your post and thought you were saying not to use them on shorthaul. Long haul def agree, the tax portion you pay isn't much greater between economy and business/first, so should only really be used in premium cabins to get the most from in. Ideally with a 2-for-1 Amex companion voucher or lloyds avios upgrade voucher.


​My statement was made based on the redemption value only - he's got 90k which is a healthy amount. Definitely agree though, Reward Flight Saver is worth it in certain situations when there are no promo fares.

Well...when they realise the glitch they'll deduct it later. Wouldn't jump on the bandwagon just for the sake of it !!


Remember though, the first rule of these glitches is to never call the airline...


Yes as I didn't want to pay full price....


have you cancelled already?


This appears to work as the final payment page shows only the discounted price but if you check your credit card afterwards then the full undiscounted amount is shown as pending and if you look at your invoice/e-ticket then again it shows the full undiscounted price. Yes there is a glitch but not one that actually saves you any money or Avios points. Most likely then you will end up paying full price. You have to call 0344 493 0787 to cancel within 24 hours

True! Not good value. BA is too greedy. Too much tax. Go for a cashback card instead.


9000 points + £35 gets you up to a ~2 hour return sector on BA's European short haul flights though, which if you book as they get released, has availability on every flight / no blackout dates. Generally you want to redeem at 1 point > 1p value (which at 1% is the general earning rate on the no fee Amex cards for everyday spend), so as long as the flight you are looking at normally costs > £125 you are getting good value. The real key is bonus earning opportunities (Clubcard conversion, topcashback payout etc).


Thanks for posting. Is Avios membership any good? I've just had a quick look and it looks like 1500 Avios points gets you £10 off a BA flight. This seems pretty poor, but perhaps I'm missing a trick...

I am doing the same. Cherry Blossom 2018. JAL skysuite are super luxurious. I'd be getting 2-4-1 voucher by BA Amex but I am a solo traveller, no one to take with me :-(


Good idea to sign up to headforpoints (see post about it above) - been a recipient of his daily emails for just a year and already racked up tons of avios. There are many other useful purposes one could use avios for besides flights and hotels: Ferries (incl eurotunnel) - https://www.avios.com/gb/en_gb/spend/ferries Eurostar - https://www.avios.com/gb/en_gb/spend/eurostar Airport Lounges & Parking - https://www.avios.com/gb/en_gb/spend/airport-extras The list could go on incl Top attractions, memberships, luxury train journeys, wine etc and this is just from Avios.com and then one could also spend avios on ba.com or Iberia's website.


Another poor value option Naz, purchasing a hotel through Quidco or Topcashback is always much better value than using Avios. However, that's only if you intend keeping them for flights sometime. After reading your initial post you say you have 100,000, and don't seem that 'into' the Avios programme. If that's the case, you don't intend to collect any more Avios and are looking rid of the ones you have, then by all means use them on a New York hotel - certainly not the cheapest place in the world to stay, and 100,000 Avios will get you a 3 or 4 night stay in a downtown 4 or 5 star hotel - could save you upwards of 4 or 500 quid!


Thanks all u have been super helpful. Is it worth while using them for hotels then?
