British Airways Partners With Uber to Offer Avios on Every Ride

On Monday (November 7, 2022), British Airways announced a new partnership with Uber for more opportunities to earn Avios. Later this month, Uber users will be able to earn Avios for every journey by car, coach or train booked the via Uber app. To take advantage of this opportunity, customers should simply link their British Airways Executive Club and Uber accounts. Members will then earn one Avios for every £1 spent on any ride booked via the Uber app in the UK. Celebrating the new partnership, Members who link their Executive Club and Uber accounts will receive 250 bonus Avios.
In Monday’s announcement, British Airways’ Head of Retail and Customer Relationship Management, Ian Romanis, 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.”
Also commenting on the new loyalty partnership, Uber UK’s General Manager, Andrew Brem, 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.”
Avios can be used as partial payment for Rewards Flights, and British Airways guarantees a minimum of 14 Reward Seats on every long-haul flight, as well as 12 on every short-haul flight to/from London Heathrow and London Gatwick. British Airways Executive Club Members can fly from as little as £1 and 18,500 Avios, enough for an off-peak return economy flight to over 40 European destinations. All British Airways Executive Club Members will be able to start earning Avios through the Uber app by the end of the month. To link accounts, customers need to link their Executive Club and Uber accounts by entering their details in the Uber app in the ‘settings’ section. Earned Avios will then automatically appear in each Member’s account following every Uber ride.
