*Avios rates and destinations quoted are per person for a one-way reward flight saver traveling in Economy (Euro Traveller) on off-peak dates. Taxes and carrier fees apply.

Reward Flight Savers are British Airways’ best value reward flights. Reward Flight Saver offers customers great value flights with a low, flat fee to cover taxes, fees and carrier charges and a fixed Avios amount. To be eligible for Reward Flight Saver, you need to have collected at least one Avios in the past 12 months.

If you are not eligible for Reward Flight Saver, you’ll be shown the standard reward flight price instead with full taxes, fees and charges. To find out more about Reward Flights and/or Reward Flight Saver, click here. All prices shown are Reward Flight Saver redemptions and based on off-peak fares for Euro Traveller (short haul) and World Traveller (long haul); standard Reward Flights will be the same Avios amount but full taxes, fees and charges will be payable. (All Avios amounts quoted in this piece were correct upon date of publication). Reward flights are subject to availability.
