Reward Flight Saver

Reward Flight Saver – All you need to know

What is Reward Flight Saver (RFS)?

Reward Flight Saver, or RFS for short, saves you money on British Airways domestic and regional flights by giving you a flat fee of R700 on taxes, fees and carrier charges. We pay the rest so that the cost of your flight stays low and you always know how much you‘ll have to pay before you book.

Am I eligible to book an RFS flight?

RFS is available to Regular Collectors – that’s members who have collected at least 1 Avios in the previous 12 months. If you have, you can book a domestic or regional return flight from just R700, plus from 8,000 Avios.
