British Airways and bp are proud to announce a new collaboration initiative that will allow customers to transform their everyday spending at BP retail sites into exciting travel experiences. From 15 September 2021, bp customers can convert their BPme Rewards points into Avios through a British Airways Executive Club membership, which can be put towards British Airways flights as well as upgrades, hotel stays, car hire and more.

For every 40 BPme Rewards points exchanged, customers will receive 25 Avios. With one BPme Rewards point earned for every litre of fuel purchased and double points for Ultimate fuel – as well as one point for every pound spent on eligible products in BP retail sites and on BP car wash services1 – members’ points can quickly add up.

And with just 18,500 Avios needed to purchase a flight to popular destinations such as Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, scheme members can look forward to making the most of the travel opportunities available. 

What’s more, to celebrate the launch of the rewards partnership, customers will receive 50 bonus Avios on their first conversion of a minimum of 40 BPme points to Avios before 27 September 2021.

To convert BPme Rewards points into Avios, scheme members must first link their BPme Rewards account to one British Airways Executive Club account (or vice versa). Accounts can be linked through the BA and BPme Rewards websites. Once connected, BPme Rewards points can be quickly and easily converted into Avios online – with options to set up automatic monthly conversion.

Elaine Tai, VP marketing, mobility & convenience Europe, bp said: “We always strive to give something extra to our customers, and now our loyalty programme members can add travel perks to a whole host of other benefits.”

“With almost 1,200 bp retail sites applying the BPme Rewards scheme and around 3 million BPme Rewards customers in the UK, we’re pleased to play a part in getting Britain’s holidays back on track.”

Niall Rooney, British Airways’ loyalty manager said: “We pride ourselves on partnering with strong brands with similar values and ambitions. Our partner brands play a big role in our everyday lives, giving even more opportunities for customers to benefit, and bp does just that.  Members can now look forward to filling up not only their tank and their shopping bags, but their travel fund. After a challenging year, it’s just what the nation needs for its holiday plans to take off.”

Avios do not expire as long as members collect, use or purchase at least one Avios every 36 months.
