British Airways Avios is one of the most popular loyalty programs in Canada as well as globally, and yet its award redemption structure is one of the most unique in the space, which can sometimes leave first-time users feeling a little lost.
Avios uses two separate distance-based award charts to determine how many miles are required to book a certain flight; combine that with the comprehensive Oneworld route network, and you end up with some pretty interesting sweet spots up for grabs.
With Amex and RBC routinely offering 30% to 50% conversion bonuses to Avios on top of their usual 1:1 transfer ratios, we take a look at the best ways to maximize the value of your Avios, and I provide a step-by-step walkthrough on how you can book the many sweet spots within the program that may not appear obvious at first glance.
