View our calendar for 2018 with peak and off-peak dates detailed for the year. During off-peak periods, which are two thirds of the year, you need less Avios for your reward flights. When booking reward flights, you can choose all peak dates, all off-peak dates, or a mixture of the two. Peak and off-peak periods vary per airline.
The higher the fare class, the more Avios are needed. Business/First class flights require the most Avios.
You have to pay a cash amount for taxes, fees and carrier charges. These vary according to travel date, carrier and the route flown. They are calculated when you book your flights on avios.com and will be displayed as you make your booking.
