We've launched an exciting new banking proposition for our UK Executive Club members who can now earn Avios through their Barclays Premier Account.

With many of us looking forward to travelling again in the future, Barclays and British Airways have partnered to launch Barclays Avios Rewards, offering customers new ways to earn incredible rewards and travel experiences from their banking.

This new programme will let Barclays Premier Banking and Wealth customers collect 1,500 Avios each month. On top of this, members of the programme can also collect Avios if they have new or existing eligible Barclays products*. The programme costs £12 a month.

As well as the Avios rewards, customers will be able to enhance their travel experience with an annual British Airways return flight cabin upgrade voucher, which once received can be enjoyed within the next two years on Avios reward flight bookings.

What’s more, new customers could receive an additional joining bonus of 25,000 Avios if they switch using the Current Account Switcher Service and join Barclays Avios Rewards within three months. Existing customers will receive 2,500 Avios. Barclays is the only UK current account through which you can collect Avios.

Once they are signed up, customers can switch on Barclays Avios rewards in the Barclays app and start building up their Avios. Avios collected from all the different avenues in the programme will be transferred to a member’s Executive Club account each month, ready to spend on future trips, or treats for now such as bespoke cases of wine, beer and spirits.
