Every once in a while, RBC Avion offers a 50% conversion bonus to Avios. That bonus is back! From June 1 to July 15, if you convert RBC Avion points to BA Avios, you will receive 1.5 Avios miles per Avion point. This is an excellent deal, and if you have any Avion points stocked up to convert now.
BA Avios points offer excellent value for flights between Canada and the USA, and within the USA. Flights start at 4500 points, and there are no fuel surcharges. However, BA Avios points suck for international long-haul redemptions, where ridiculous fuel surcharges are charged. If you’re looking at domestic or Canada-USA trips anytime soon though, I’d jump on this deal.
