The RBC British Airways Visa Infinite card earns Avios and gives cardholders the opportunity to earn 2x Avios on all British Airways-related purchases.

Rewards Rates

The RBC British Airways Visa Infinite credit card accrues British Airways Avios for all purchases made on the card:

  • Earn 2 Avios points for every dollar spent on British Airways-related eligible purchases, such as flights and holiday packages.
  • Earn 1 Avios point for every dollar spent on all other purchases.

Redeeming British Airways Avios

British Airways Avios can be redeemed for flights, ticket upgrades, hotels, rental cars, and experiences.

The best value for your British Airways Avios points is to redeem them for flight awards. Pricing depends on the cabin class, in addition to the partner that you are booking on. The best way to determine the total cost of your planned itinerary is to utilize the British Airways Reward Availability tool.


As a British Airways Visa Infinite cardholder, upon spending $30,000 in a calendar year, you will receive a companion award eVoucher. This eVoucher can only be used on British Airways booking that originates from and returns to Canada, limiting the potential options for usage.

The companion award is used in conjunction with redeeming Avios for the cardholder’s ticket, meaning that you would need to find two award seats on a flight to be able to use the eVoucher. Taxes and fees regarding the companion eVoucher will still need to be paid.

Cardholders are also eligible to receive 10% off of cash bookings for British Airways flights when you pay with your card.

The Royal Bank of Canada British Airways Visa Infinite card offers seven types of insurance coverage:

  • Emergency medical insurance
  • Travel accident insurance
  • Rental car collision and loss damage coverage
  • Flight delay insurance
  • Hotel and motel burglary coverage
