But be sure to collect Avios when you are buying your petrol at BP, staying at a Protea Hotel, buying groceries or evening renting an Avis car rental. If you have an Avios credit card – pay for your purchases with that and collect 1 Avios per R10 spent. Before you know it you could be redeeming a flight on British Airways for your next holiday!
