If you have not been actively crediting your Airbnb bookings to a frequent flyer program, now is the time to start! British Airways is offering you 3 Avios per £1/€1/$1 spent with Airbnb worldwide. For your first ever booking or hosting on Airbnb you will earn an additional 500 and 8000 Avios respectively.

How to earn Avios with Airbnb?

All bookings must be made through British Airways’ Airbnb portal.

Key Terms and Conditions to Take Note

  1. Only Avios can be collected, not tier points.
  2. Avios will be credited to the intended beneficiary account within 60 days of booking date.
  3. Customers must have cookies enabled in the browser and complete the booking in the same session for Airbnb to track the booking.
  4. The membership number of the intended beneficiary of the Avios must belong to the individual making the booking.

If you are sharp enough, you probably would have guessed that you could possibly exploit this opportunity further by setting the currency to USD at Airbnb to earn additional Avios. (remember 3 Avios per £1/€1/$1. shhh.. Keep this as our secret and let me know if this is successful.)
