This article aims to help you understand what Avios points are, and the multitude of benefits from collecting them.
What is Heathrow Rewards?
Heathrow Rewards is the loyalty scheme for Heathrow airport. It is free to join and points are collected with virtually every pound spent at Heathrow.
- 1 point per £1 spent on Shopping, Dining, Heathrow Parking and Heathrow Express.
- 1 point per £10 spent Heathrow airport bureaux de change.
Heathrow Rewards offers a 1:1 point transfer to 8 major airline frequent flyer programs (AerClub, Avios, British Airways Executive Club, Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest, Miles and More - Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic Flyingclub and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer).
Whilst a 1:1 point transfers into an airmilage scheme is good, Heathrow Rewards regularly boosts this rate, offering transfer bonuses that can be as much as 100%.
In addition to airmilage transfers, Heathrow Rewards points can be redeemed as:
- Airport shopping vouchers: 500 points = £5 voucher.
- Heathrow Parking: 500 points = £10 voucher.
- Heathrow Express: 500 points = £5 voucher.
Heathrow Rewards points are therefore valued between 1 - 2p depending on how you choose your redemption.
As with many Airline mileage programs, Heathrow Rewards points expire 3-years after the date of the most recent transaction.
Buying and transferring points
Heathrow Rewards points cannot be purchased, however they can be transferred between members.
With a points value of between 1 - 2p, and a 1:1 transfer rate into the major airline frequent flyer programs, certainly makes Heathrow Rewards a scheme worth joining.
