Avios – Travel Rewards for Travel Lovers


The simple truth is, there’s nothing better than traveling… except free travel.

Avios have recently given away 50 pairs of flights to people who have sent in videos about their loved ones and how they have helped them and changed their lives. I recently watched this video about Avios big reward flights  and felt really moved. It’s great to see a big company helping out normal people in our society that are making a big difference in the lives of their friends and family.


What is Avios?

If you haven’t heard already, Avios is one of the biggest flight reward programs out there. You can earn points as you spend normally – whether it’s on your groceries, petrol, new purchases or certain bills. Your Avios will build up as you shop and before you know it you will have enough Avios to redeem them for flights, hotels, car rental or tickets for shows and events. If you know you have a big trip coming up in a year or two, such as a wedding overseas or an adventure planned, why not start collecting Avios now so that you can minimise the bill by the time the trip rolls around.

What Can You Spend Avios On?

The sky is the limit, literally. You can redeem Avios in a number of ways to ensure your future holidays are as affordable as possible. As many of you know, flights tend to be a big chunk of the travel budget. Often we compromise where we want to go for where we can afford to go. If you collect enough Avios you could get free flights to your dream destination.


Fancy a flash hotel for a few nights? Why not collect your Avios so that you can splash out and stay somewhere that you might otherwise not be able to afford or justify staying.

Do you usually travel by public transport when you’re in a destination? Why not ‘upgrade’ to a car rental and enjoy the independence of traveling at your own pace on your own schedule? Avios will allow you to redeem your points for car rental so that you can be in full control of your holiday.

You’re going to buy groceries, pay bills and fill up your car anyway, so why not be rewarded for it? Avios is a great travel reward program that allows you to quickly build up points to redeem them.
