Good news: Collect Avios on Uber
After what feels like a run of bad news for Avios collectors there is finally some good news.
Uber users will soon be able to collect Avios on every journey they take by car, coach or train booked via the Uber app, by simply linking their British Airways Executive Club and Uber accounts.
From later this month, Members of the airline’s loyalty programme will be eligible to collect 1 Avios for every £1 spent on any ride, whether that be by car, coach or train, booked on the Uber app in the UK. These can be spent as usual
To celebrate the new partnership, Members who link their Executive Club and Uber accounts via the Uber app will receive 250 bonus Avios.
Users simply need to link their Executive Club and Uber accounts, by entering their details into the Uber app in the settings section. To sign up to the British Airways Executive Club, visit www.britishairways.com/executive-club. The Avios will then automatically appear in your account after every Uber ride.
Avios can be used as part-payment towards Reward Flights, with British Airways guaranteeing a minimum of 14 Reward Seats on every long-haul flight, and 12 on every short-haul flight, to and from London Heathrow and London Gatwick.
Andrew Brem, General Manager at Uber UK said: “We’re thrilled to be able to help Uber users collect Avios on every single journey they take. So everyday trips, such as going to work or to the shops is helping you to get somewhere a little more exotic with British Airways”.
Ian Romanis, Head of Retail and Customer Relationship Management at British Airways said: “Avios helps to open up the world, wherever our customers wish to travel. From beach holidays in the Indian Ocean, to city breaks in Europe and beyond, it’s such a valuable currency that is so easy to collect – our Members can do this easily as part of their everyday lives. We’re thrilled to welcome Uber on board in helping to bring our customers travel plans to life.”
All British Airways Executive Club Members will be able to collect Avios through the Uber App by the end of the month.
