What is Avios and how does it work?
Avios is a frequent flyer scheme that allows you to earn points towards the cost of a flight as you spend. You can earn points through flying, spending with Avios partner brands or converting points from other programmes, such as the Sainsbury’s Nectar points scheme. There are several credit cards and business credit cards that offer Avios but the best Avios credit card for you will ultimately depend on whether you are happy to pay an annual fee.
You can redeem your Avios points via the Avios website. You can use them to book flights, a hotel or car hire, or to book days out and experiences or even order wine.
