Don’t be fooled by the Avios offer for the Heathrow Express

Heathrow Express avios

Iberia has recently sent out an offer to earn extra Avios when booking the Heathrow Express train which serves London Paddington and Heathrow Airport. The thing they don’t mention is that in order to score the Avios you need to buy a pretty expensive ticket.

These are the Avios on offer:

However, if you can book 14, 30, 90 days in advance and can travel at weekends then the fares can be MUCH cheaper:

Remember, that if you cannot book in advance and travel at a weekend, you can combine the Avios offer with the Star Alliance Gold offer I mentioned last week which starts tomorrow, if you have a Star Alliance Gold card.
