You can book rewards flights using Avios. You can book to any worldwide destination, where there’s availability, with British Airways and their oneworld partners. However, even when you pay with your Avios, you must pay a cash amount for taxes, fees and carrier charges. (Note-this fee could be quite high). The price you pay for your reward flight depends on your destination and your class of travel. The easiest way to work it out is to use British Airways reward flight calculator Click here to access the calculator to see how many Avios are needed for a given flight.
You can use your Avios to upgrade a regular cash booking to the next cabin, where there’s availability, on selected fares with British Airways, Iberia and American Airlines. Avios upgrades are not available on reward flights, only on cash bookings.
You can reduce the price of selected regular cash bookings by paying part of the price in Avios. You’ll earn Avios back on the flight as well.
