RBC Avion 50% Transfer Bonus to British Airways Executive Club

In case you missed it on our main or in our newsletter, British Airways and RBC are once again offering Avion cardholders a 50% bonus on transferring RBC Rewards points to BA Miles. The offer runs until August 31 and if past years are any indication we should see it again this November.

This is a great offer to take advantage of if you are not looking at booking travel using the set RBC Rewards chart as BA provides some decent economy, business, and first class offerings to the U.K. and beyond. They also offer miles for upgrades so if you do not have enough miles for a business class or first class flight you can use miles to upgrade a paid fare in economy, economy Plus, or business class. Another good use of BA miles is with their partners from the OneWorld Alliance which means you don't have to redeem for BA flights via London but go direct on airlines like Cathay Pacific to Asia or American Airlines to the U.S. One thing to watch out for however with BA is seat availability, we have heard mixed stories of people being able to get or not get reward seats on flights plus redemptions on BA to the U.K. can carry heavy taxes and fuel surcharges.
