One of the key features of the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite card is the ability to earn a British Airways Companion Award eVoucher each year.
Once earned, you can apply a Companion Award eVoucher to a booking from British Airways Executive Club, and save on the number of Avios required for a booking for one or two passengers.
How to Earn a British Airways Companion Award eVoucher
In Canada, there’s only one way to earn a British Airways Companion Award eVoucher.
Each calendar year, upon spending $30,000 (all prices in Canadian dollars) on an RBC British Airways Visa Infinite card, you’ll earn a Companion Award eVoucher.
- Earn 15,000 Avios when you get approved for the card
- Then, earn
25,00035,000 Avios when you spend $6,000 in the first three months
- Also, earn 10,000 Avios when you renew the card for a second year
- Plus, earn 1x Avios on all purchases
- Get a Companion Award eVoucher for an Avios redemption on British Airways flights upon spending $30,000 in a calendar year
- Annual fee: $165
You can only earn one voucher per calendar year, even if you spend more than $30,000. Therefore, even if you spend $65,000 on the card in a year, you’ll still only earn a single Companion Award eVoucher.
The spending window resets on January 1 of every year, and you aren’t able to roll over any excess spending to the next year.
After meeting the $30,000 spending requirement, you may have to wait up to eight weeks for the Companion Award eVoucher to be added to your British Airways Executive Club account.
Once earned, Companion Award eVouchers are valid for 24 months from the date of issuance. More specifically, the flight to which the voucher is applied must commence before its expiry date.
Since the vouchers are valid for two years, it’s possible to have more than one available in your account. Because of this, you can use two Companion Award eVouchers on the same booking, which would then cover up to four passengers.
It’s worth noting that there are other, similar vouchers offered on cards in the United States and the United Kingdom. These vouchers have different terms and conditions, which don’t apply to the Canadian…
