British Airways Executive Club members now have a new way to purchase Avios, and that is through subscription plans!

This new offer lets you boost your Avios balance on a monthly or yearly basis so you don’t have to wait for random promotions or offers. You can still purchase Avios points at its fixed price but you might not get the best value for your money there.

There are four different subscription plans that you can avail of, and you have the option to get a monthly or an annual plan.

  • Voyager
    • Monthly: Get 1,667 Avios for £19 or $21 per month
    • Annual: Get 20,000 Avios for £185 or $205 per year

  • Traveler
    • Monthly: Get 4,167 Avios for £45 or $50 per month
    • Annual: Get 50,000 Avios for £455 pounds or $504 per year.

  • Explorer
    • Get 8,334 Avios for £89 or $99 per month
    • Get 100,000 Avios for £899 or $996 per year

  • Adventurer
    • Get 16,667 Avios for £179 or $198 per month
    • Get 200,000 Avios for £1,789 or $1,981 per year

The advantage of yearly plans is that you get two months for free which eventually brings down the cost of your Avios.

Just remember that you need to pay the non-refundable fee upfront so make sure you finalize everything before you purchase. Also, award fares don’t earn status points so you might want to consider that before buying Avios too.

The great thing about this new subscription method is it gives frequent flyers a chance to boost their Avios in times when they really need to. For example, if you have an upcoming trip and you lack 50,000 Avios, you can just pay for an annual Traveler Plan instead of waiting for promotions that sell out really quick.

What do you think about this new product? Is it going to change the landscape of the points and miles field?
