For the next 5 days when you convert points from any of five hotel programs to British Airways Executive Club you will receive 25% bonus Avios on those conversions. The five hotel programs participating in this bonus are IHG One Rewards, Marriott Bonvoy, Radisson Rewards Americas, Radisson Rewards Worldwide and World of Hyatt. The promotion runs until April 25, 2022
Out of the participating hotel programs there is only one of real value here to convert and that is Marriott Bonvoy. The standard 3 Marriott Bonvoy Points to 1 Avios conversion rate is good rate to start with however if you convert 60,000 Bonvoy points at once to 20,000 Avios Marriott will kick in an additional 5,000 Avios for 25,000 total. Add the 25% bonus on top of that and you would receive 31,250 Avios for every 60,000 Bonvoy Points converted.
The other hotel programs don’t have very good conversion ratios to airlines when compared to Marriott however if you have some orphaned points in any of those programs that you know you will never use towards a hotel stay then it is opportunities like this one that you want to take advantage of to gain a little more value out of those that would otherwise go unused.
