In a thrilling collaboration between British Airways and Uber, travelers in the United Kingdom have a unique opportunity to win a whopping one million Avios points. This final week of the promotion introduces an enticing chance for participants to become Avios millionaires, simply by taking an Uber trip. For those inclined towards rail travel, booking train tickets through the Uber app, including the Eurostar, doubles your entries, elevating the stakes in this exciting competition.

Here's How to Enter

To dive into this lucrative contest, start by linking your British Airways Executive Club account with your Uber profile. It's a straightforward process: open the Uber app, navigate to 'Account,' then 'Settings,' and find 'British Airways Executive Club' under the Rewards section. After tapping 'Link Account,' any Uber ride you book by 23:59 on April 7th automatically counts as an entry into the competition—no additional steps needed. Eligibility is simple: be a UK resident over the age of 18 and ensure your travel is within mainland UK and Northern Ireland.

Double the Chances with Train Journeys

The competition warmly welcomes eco-conscious travelers, offering them an extra entry when booking train travel through Uber. This includes all domestic train journeys and the Eurostar, as long as the trip begins or ends in the UK. And the options don’t stop there; London's Uber Boat, Lime e-bikes and scooters, Local Cabs, and even coach journeys via National Express or Megabus booked through the Uber App, all count towards competition entries.

Collect Avios on Every Journey

Even if the grand prize eludes you, every Uber trip still earns you valuable Avios points. Members of the British Airways Executive Club accrue 1 Avios for every £1 spent on each eligible ride, excluding tips and additional charges. This partnership, initiated in 2022, is designed to benefit the avid traveler, allowing you to accumulate points on everyday travel expenses efficiently.

Uber's initiative extends beyond British shores, with international partnerships allowing passengers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, and Australia to link their respective airline loyalty accounts to Uber for point collection. In the UK, the partnership with Hopper even enables users to book airline tickets directly through the Uber app, although these bookings do not qualify for the current promotion.

Your Ticket to the Sky

This unique promotion serves as a reminder of the innovative ways in which companies are enhancing value for travelers. With a seamless blend of convenience and reward, British Airways and Uber are transforming the way we view travel—turning every journey into a potential jackpot. Whether by land or through the skies, the path to becoming an Avios millionaire is just a ride away.
