Need to know

For every one Discovery Mile you convert, you can get one Avios. Your Avios allow you to:

  • Book a reward flight to almost 1,000 destinations in more than 150 countries with British Airways, a oneworld® partner, or with a partner airline.
  • Treat yourself to a cabin upgrade, and travel in even greater comfort and luxury.
  • Pay part cash and part Avios. If you don’t have enough Avios to redeem for a reward flight, you can pay with a combination of cash and Avios.
  • It may take up to 72 hours for the conversion to take place.

Terms and conditions

  • Reward flights are subject to availability. Taxes, fees and carrier charges apply.
  • Upon conversion of the cardholder’s Discovery Miles to Avios, Avios points and the redemption of Avios are subject to British Airways Executive Club terms and conditions.

Getting started

Only members of the British Airways Executive Club can convert Discovery Miles to Avios.

You can convert Miles any time but a minimum of 2 000 Miles must be converted per conversion. Alternatively, you could set up an automatic monthly conversion whereby we would do the conversion for you. In this instance, you would need to convert a minimum of 1 000 Miles per month. You can also set your own monthly limit (as long as it is above 1 000 Miles). If there is a shortfall, this will roll over to the next month.

You can convert your Discovery Miles to Avios by calling Discovery Card on 0860 11 2273.
