Can I choose how Avios will be automatically deducted, when spending the total balance across both of my accounts, to book an award flight or pay with Cash + Avios?

Follow

Yes, and you have three options to select from depending on your preference, as described below.

  1. All linked accounts

Avios from Qatar Airways Privilege Club and British Airways Executive Club accounts that are linked, can be used in proportion to the balance of each account.

For example, if a member has a balance of 15,000 Avios in their Qatar Airways Privilege Club account, and a balance of 5,000 Avios in their British Airways Executive Club account and they wish to spend 10,000 Avios, 7,500 Avios will be deducted from their Qatar Airways Privilege Club account and 2,500 Avios will be deducted from their British Airways Executive Club account.

 

  1. Qatar Airways Privilege Club first

When this option is selected, Qatar Airways will first deduct as many Avios as possible from the Qatar Airways Privilege Club account. If the balance of the Qatar Airways Privilege Club account is less than the total amount of Avios to be spent, the remainder will be deducted from the British Airways Executive Club account.

For example, if a member has a balance of 5,000 Avios in their Qatar Airways Privilege Club account, and a balance of 15,000 Avios in their British Airways Executive Club account and they wish to spend 7,500 Avios, their Avios will be deducted as follows:

Avios to be deducted from Qatar Airways Privilege Club = 5,000 Avios
                Avios to be deducted from British Airways Executive Club = 2,500 Avios

 

  1. British Airways Executive Club first

When this option is selected, Qatar Airways will first deduct as many Avios as possible from the British Airways Executive Club account. If the balance of the British Airways Executive Club account is less than the total amount of Avios to be spent, the remainder will be deducted from the Qatar Airways Privilege Club account.

For example, if a member has a balance of 15,000 Avios in their Qatar Airways Privilege Club account, and a balance of 5,000 Avios in their British Airways Executive Club account and they wish to spend 7,500 Avios, their Avios will be deducted as follows:


Avios to be deducted from British Airways Executive Club = 5,000 Avios
Avios to be deducted from Qatar Airways Privilege Club = 7,500 Avios
