Recommended Capital One Miles Cards

We recommend this as a no-brainer card if you even semi-regularly stay at hotels.
Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card - This is an excellent card for those looking to earn 1.25x miles per $1 on every purchase. With a 20,000 mile sign up bonus (worth $200 toward travel) after spending $500 within the first 3 months and no annual fee, it's a strong choice.

Other Hotel Partner Credit Cards

A few hotel programs will let you transfer points to British Airways. However, this is almost always a poor use of hotel points.

Unless you are really in a bind, save your hotel points for hotel award stays at your destination.

British Airways Airline Overview

British Airways’ mileage program is Executive Club, and Avios is the reward currency.

You can collect Avios not only on British Airways flights, but also through partner airline flights, hotel stays, car rentals, credit card use, and even shopping and dining.

You can also purchase Avios if you are short of a reward, share them with a Household Account, or transfer them to friends for a fee.

Joining British Airways Executive Club

Joining the British Airways frequent flyer program is easy and free. Sign up online and begin collecting and redeeming Avios immediately.

Household Accounts

BA Executive Club members can create a Household Account of up to 6 people living at the same address. Avios are then pooled and reward redemptions drawn from the combined balance.

There are some important restrictions about Household Accounts:

  • One person is the Head of Household who can add/remove members or change the address (1 address change allowed per 6 months)
  • You cannot redeem rewards for members not in the Household, except up to 3 people added to the Friends and Family list (changes only allowed once per 6 months; from first change you have 24 hours to complete all changes before the 6-month freeze)
  • Household Accounts cannot use the Combine My Avios tool to move Avios between BA and Iberia; instead you’ll need an account

How to Sign in to Your British Airways Executive Club Account

Sign in on the British Airways homepage. You’ll need to enter your login ID and PIN/password.

Viewing Your Account Activity

You can manage your account on the My Executive Club page.

Points Expiration

Avios expire after 36 months without activity. Any activity where you earn, redeem, or share points resets the clock.

Value of British Airways Executive Club Elite Status

Many travelers aspire to Executive Club Gold for access to BA first class lounges and Oneworld Emerald status for partner airline first class lounges. Even with Gold, however, you do not get the flight upgrades that are a treasured perk of many competitor programs.

Executive Club Silver is primarily distinguished for business lounge access. Executive Club Bronze is a typical entry-level elite status. At these levels, some travelers opt in to alternate Oneworld programs such as American Airlines AAdvantage.

Earning British Airways Executive Club Elite Status

To reach each level of Executive Club status, you must earn a set number of Tier Points each year:

  • Bronze: 300 Tier Points
  • Silver: 600 Tier Points
  • Gold: 1500 Tier Points

See the Executive Club Tier Points guide and calculator to estimate how your flights on British Airways and partners will earn Tier Points (or not).

Airlines That Award Tier Points
American AirlinesBritish AirwaysCathay PacificComair
FinnairIberiaJapan AirlinesLATAM
Malaysian AirlinesOpenSkiesQantasQatar
Royal JordanianS7 AirlinesSriLankan AirlinesSUN-AIR of Scandinavia

Lifetime Executive Club Gold

Many road warriors track their Lifetime Tier Points in hopes of reaching 35,000 for Lifetime Gold. There is no lifetime status for Bronze or Silver. Some dedicated flyers go on “Tier Points runs,” which are the BA equivalent of mileage runs.

Oneworld Status

With Bronze, Silver, and Gold status you also receive a corresponding Oneworld status (Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald) and the associated benefits when flying with Oneworld partner airlines.

How To Earn Avios

There are tons of ways to earn Avios that you can redeem for flights on British Airways or one of their partners.

Earn Avios by Flying BA

Every time you fly with British Airways or any of its partner carriers, you will collect a minimum of 125 Avios per flight.

Unlike the U.S. where miles earned are progressively becoming more monetary-based, this means you can still make “mileage runs” and earn extra Avios by having many transfers on your itinerary.

Your Avios and Tier Points earnings depend on travel class and fare class.

Executive Club elite status members earn even more Avios: 25% bonus for Bronze, 50% bonus for Silver, and 100% bonus for Gold.

British Airways Earning
It’s easy to find the minimum Avios you will earn on a British Airways flight. Image courtesy of

Earn Avios by Flying BA’s Partner Airlines

BA partners with Oneworld airlines and several additional airlines, including Alaska Airlines and Iberia.

Each partner is subject to its own Avios and Tier Points earning rules. It gets complicated, so check carefully.

Earn Avios With Credit Cards

There is only 1 British Airways branded credit card: the Chase British Airways Visa Signature® Card. You will earn 3x Avios for British Airways purchases and 1x Avios for other purchases.

British Airways also has partnered with 4 transferable points programs. These partnerships make it easy to transfer points to your Executive Club account whenever you need some Avios for an award booking.

You can earn American Express Membership Rewards or Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to British Airways. Recently, Amex restored the 1:1 transfer ratio.

Marriott Bonvoy points also transfer to Avios at a 3:1 ratio. If you transfer a chunk of 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, you’ll even get an additional 5,000 Avios.

Capital One miles transfer to Avios at a 2:1.5 ratio.

Other Ways to Earn Avios

See our best ways to earn lots of British Airways Avios article for many opportunities to earn Avios with British Airways travel and retail partners. Plus, earn even more when shopping with the British Airways Avios eStore shopping portal.

How To Redeem Avios

spending avios
Spending Avios is a little more complicated than using some other airline miles. Find out more in this detailed guide.

Now that we’ve listed the best ways to use Avios, let’s talk about some other details. British Airways Executive Club is significantly different from traditional airline frequent flyer programs. By learning how spending Avios works, you can have fantastic travel experiences!

Traditional airline award charts are priced by geographic region, meaning the miles price is fixed regardless of distance or flight connections in that region. This gives you the traditional 25,000-mile U.S. domestic round-trip award ticket familiar to many travelers.

British Airways has a distance and segment-based award chart, and understanding it is crucial to get value from flight awards.

Each Avios award redemption is priced by distance for every segment of a trip; prices add up fast!

New York to Chicago nonstop, for example, is 7,500 Avios.

If no nonstop is available and you need to connect in Cleveland, the price doubles to 15,000 Avios since each segment is priced separately. New York to Cleveland is 7,500, and Cleveland to Chicago is another 7,500. Avios charges you for both!

How Much Do British Airways Avios Award Flights Cost?

British Airways no longer publishes an award chart. Instead, you should use their official Reward Flight Calculator.

There are 4 types of prices, and each varies based on flight distance:

  1. British Airways flights have peak and off-peak prices (check dates here).
  2. Iberia flights have peak and off-peak prices that differ slightly from British Airways flights.
  3. Single-partner awards are one price with no peak or off-peak dates.
  4. Multi-partner awards are priced by total trip distance.

Hot Tip: Flights under 650 miles are 6,000 Avios, except in North America where they are 7,500 Avios.

First vs. Business Class

Not all airlines or flights have all classes of service.

Beware of domestic “first class” flights that are not worth the price! Compared to 7,500 Avios in economy, for example, 30,000 Avios for a short American Airlines flight in first class is probably not worth it.

In contrast, some of the coolest Avios awards are for short first or business class flights that grant you access to incredible airline lounges. This may be the cheapest way to experience Cathay Pacific’s The Wing in Hong Kong or the Qantas International First Lounge in Sydney.

Hot Tip: Starting with flights in January 2017, American Airlines is realigning fare codes so many domestic “first class” flights are treated as business class for Avios award tickets. They now cost much less! This does not apply to 3-cabin aircraft (first, business, economy), such as those flying cross-country from New York to Los Angeles or San Francisco.

Multi-Carrier Award Flights

Multi-carrier means a combination of 2 airlines on a single ticket, and these awards have their own chart.

These awards are expensive, and you’ll most likely do better by booking separate airlines on separate tickets.

The multi-carrier Avios price is the same regardless of connections, one-way, or round-trip: only total distance matters. However, taxes, fees, and carrier charges vary widely, so beware!

Multi-Carrier Award Flights
Miles in your journeyAvios for economy
0–1,50030,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
1,501–4,00035,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
4,001–9,00060,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
9,001–10,00070,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges

25,001–35,000140,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges
35,001–50,000160,000 + taxes, fees, and carrier charges

In general, premium economy is 1.5 times the economy price. Business is 2 times economy, and first class is 3 times economy.

What Is Reward Flight Saver?

British Airways Reward Flight Saver
The British Airways Reward Flight Saver can save you cash on British Airways Europe flights and Comair flights.

Your account must have earned Avios in the past 12 months to be eligible for Reward Flight Saver.

With Reward Flight Saver, award flights on British Airways within Europe and Comair in Africa are charged reduced, flat fees. This is in lieu of other taxes and surcharges.

Reward Flight Aaver is automatically applied on qualifying itineraries.

What Is Avios & Cash?

British Airways and some partner airlines may have several payment options that allow you to use a combination of Avios and cash.

If you want to use fewer Avios or don’t have enough to complete a booking, you can choose an option that includes more cash.

Here are the Avios and cash options for London to Edinburgh as an example:

British Airways Avios and Cash London-Edinburgh
British Airways Avios and cash gives you options to save Avios or save cash.

Beware of Surcharges on British Airways Flights

Extremely high fees are added to the Avios award price of many British Airways flights. Exceptions are flights within Europe that qualify for Reward Flight Saver.

It is not unheard for the cash component of a British Airways award redemption to be as much as directly buying a cash ticket!

The fees on trans-Atlantic flights are especially shocking. T

If we take a British Airways New York to Berlin, it would cost 24,500 Avios and a whopping $338.76!

British Airways Avios New York to Berlin
Flying British Airways from New York to Berlin adds $338.76 in taxes and fees!

Bottom Line: As a general rule of thumb, short-distance, nonstop flights on partner airlines offer the best Avios value.

Where to Search for British Airways Avios Award Flights

You can search for British Airways flights and many airline partners on

AirlineSearch on
American AirlinesYes
Alaska AirlinesSearch
LATAMYes, but often with errors; check LATAM’s site
Aer LingusSearch
Royal JordanianYes
Sri LankanYes
Cathay PacificYes
Malaysia AirlinesYes
Japan AirlinesYes

Hot Tip: Be cautious searching for awards directly on other airline partner websites. Some awards may only be available to their own members, not to partners. For American Airlines, you can only use Avios to book what American shows as MileSAAver awards, not AAnytime awards.

Start 355 Days in Advance

Awards are available up to 355 days before departure, and there are no award holds or waitlists.

Hot Tip: British Airways can book partner awards up to 355 days before departure, but American Airlines is only 330. With British Airways, you can access awards weeks before American Airlines members can!

How to Search for British Airways Rewards

Start at My Executive Club and search using Book with Avios.

When the search screen says, “You can break your journey with stopovers,” select, “No, I want to continue without stopovers.”

This will search partner flights in addition to British Airways flights.

british airways rewards
Searching British Airways rewards flights, select no stopover unless you want to visit London.

Flights may not display on for various reasons:

  • Certain partner airlines are not searched
  • “Route unavailable” means the website is not programmed for that route
  • Multi-connection flight options are not searched

Online Booking Problems? Call and Waive the Fee

Even if you can’t find an award on the website, the good news is that if an award is available, you can call in to have British Airways agents book it!

Ask the agent to waive the $25 phone booking fee since the flight is unavailable online. They will usually do so if you ask.

Bottom Line: Many award flights are available online. If not, call to book and ask to waive the $25 booking fee since it is not available online!

How to Get a Free London Stopover

When flying British Airways, you have the option of a free stopover in London.

When the award search screen says, “You can break your journey with stopovers,” select, “I want to break my journey and choose my stopovers.”

British Airways Avios Free Stopover
Your London stopover can be a few days or even several months.

Free stopover pricing is different from other Avios awards. The whole stopover trip is priced by the distance as if it were 1 flight, rather than pricing each segment separately.

Bottom Line: To minimize fees, the best London stopover value is between 2 UK or European cities near to London rather than long-haul flights.

Use British Airways Executive Club Household Accounts to Pool Avios

You can form a British Airways Executive Club Household Account. This means you and up to 7 people at the same address can become a Household to pool Avios.

Awards are deducted proportionally from the Household common pool of Avios, and each household member earns Avios and British Airways status on their own.

British Airways Executive Club Household Account
A British Airways Executive Club Household Account is useful for families to pool their Avios.

The key limitation is that once you are in a Household, you can only redeem Avios for members of the Household (same address) or up to 5 Family and Friends (different address).

Family and Friends have their own Avios, which are not pooled with the Household. Any individual must stay on the Family and Friends list for at least 6 months.

Without a Household account, British Airways charges huge fees to transfer Avios to another member (Gold members can transfer for free).

The maximum you can transfer in a year is 162,000 Avios, and those are capped at 27,000 Avios per recipient. At $290 per 27,000 Avios to transfer, that is absurd!

Low Cancel Fees = Flexibility!

Avios award tickets have some of the lowest booking fees among major airlines.

There are no last-minute ticketing fees! In contrast, American Airlines charges $75 for bookings within 21 days. You may be able to book the same American Airlines flight with Avios and avoid the fee.

Change or cancellation is relatively low: $55. If the cash portion of your Avios award ticket is less than $55, then you only forfeit the cash amount you paid. You don’t pay the full $55 unless your ticket’s fees were $55 or more.

Note that the phone fee is an extra $25 if you don’t change or cancel online.

Hot Tip: A U.S. domestic nonstop on American Airlines is only charged $5.60 taxes. If you later cancel, you only lose $5.60…a small price to pay for flexibility!

Quick Guide to Iberia Avios

In 2010, Spanish airline Iberia Airlines merged with British Airways to give you another excellent way to avoid British Airway’s fuel surcharges.

Until December 15, 2016 you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Iberia with a 50% bonus. With the bonus, 250 Membership Rewards points transfer to 300 Iberia Plus Avios.

You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to British Airways and then to Iberia.

If you want to transfer your miles from BA to Iberia, sign up for an Iberia Plus account. To transfer, your Iberia account must be at least 90 days old and must have had points activity.

Try to transfer too soon, and you’ll get this error:

British Airways Combine My Points Unsuccessful
Your Iberia Plus account must be 3 months old and have earned Avios to make a successful transfer from British Airways

There are various ways to earn Iberia Avios, such as Amex transfer.

After 90 days from Iberia account opening, log in to your British Airways Executive Club account, click on “Manage My Account,” and select “Combine My Avios” from the drop down and then again on the next page.

Select Iberia Plus from the list of programs and enter your Iberia Plus number and pin.

  1. Lynn Guinness February 9, 2019

    How do I get my Silver Card, No 99361021, verified?


    • Hi Lynn,

      You should receive an e-mail from British Airways asking to verify your account. Be sure to check your spam box to see if they e-mail is there. Otherwise, you’ll need to create another British Airways Executive Club account and verify it via e-mail again if you lost the first e-mail. Thanks for reading.


  2. I have a AA account with miles and a BA account with avios. Can I merge everything into BA executive club as both are part of oneworld?
    Thanks in advance.


  3. Can I transfer my Iberia points to BA, if I don’t have any activity on my BA account? It is however more than 90 days old, Iberia won’t let me book one-way tickets on partner airlines and I read BA does, thanks.


    • Hi Gabe,

      Both accounts must have had some sort of activity in them before you can transfer. This includes anything from mileage accrual from flying, shopping portal activity, or transferring points from credit card award program like American Express Membership Rewards or Chase Ultimate Rewards.
