Late last month, Best Western Hotels & Resorts and Avios Group announced a new partnership that will let Best Western Rewards members collect 500 Avios points per stay at any Best Western-branded hotel worldwide. 

Avios is the rewards currency used by several international airlines, including Aer Lingus, British Airways, Flybe, Iberia, kulula.com and Meridiana.

The partnership will let Avios users use Best Western’s network of 4,100+ global hotels worldwide. Avios collected during a Best Western stay can be used toward flights, upgrades, hotel stays, days out and more. The offer is open to BWR members who are also members of the loyalty programs Aer Club from Aer Lingus, the British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus, Meridiana Club or the Avios Travel Rewards Programme.
