The British Airways shopping portal is offering 30,000 Avios the first time you rent out your place on Airbnb. Minimum rental is $100 to earn the full 30,000 — lower ‘order total will receive a lower reward.’
Stated rewards is for when you have welcomed your first guest to stay and the stay is completed. If the order total is less than $100 you will receive a lower reward. No rewards are given on Miami Hosting, The Big Island Hosting, referrals and/or active and booked listings.
I don’t actually love the idea of someone staying in my home, even for the rental income plus miles. Drew from Travel is Free runs a business on the Airbnb platform and argues you should Airbnb your home when you travel and has a guide to making money with short term rentals.
What if you want to earn the miles but don’t want someone sleeping in your bed and doing goodness knows what else in your home? Maybe I shouldn’t literally list my home and have my wife rent it, we have the same last name, but her parents have a different last name. 30,000 Avios for the fees associated with a one night rental is a pretty good deal.
