Avios points to cyprus

Our Avios points are mounting up for a variety of reasons. We'd like to go to Cyprus in the next 15months . but I'm confused about how and when to use them , maybe even with whom and for what?

Has anyone used Avios to Cyprus or to anywhere and can give us some guidelines .

Thank you

You can use your points with British Airways. I used them last year to Larnaca.

OKay . Thanks. we have most points with BA but can switch between BA and Avios.

Ill have to ring and find out how far in advance to book.

A friend has given me the names of some hotels so I'm wondering how to book those. I believe hotels can be expensive with BA.

If you don't mind me asking, did you do a flight on ly, flight and hotels or package with transfers?

Thanks for the info

BA flights are only released 11.5 months in advance so you won't be able to book BA 15 months in advance.

I've used BA/Avios points for 12 years now and get flights every year to somewhere, however, availability is usually poor during high peak seasons (i.e. school holidays) so if you can fly outside peak times you have a better chance of getting flights.

I've also used Avios points to book hotels for several years

You can go on the Avios site to see availability for airlines and hotels


Go onto the BA site to see how many miles you need for a flight to Cyprus and then back to the Avios site for hotels.
