This offer is available until March 31st 2013.

Customers can take advantage of this offer by buying their currency online or from any American Express UK Currency Exchange airport bureau, or from Moneycorp in London Gatwick airport.

The deal is the latest from Avios, which form formed a partnership with American Express in September 2012.

Andrea Burchett, director of partnerships, marketing & insight at Avios, said: “Our partnership with American Express rewards our members for buying foreign currency with a simple way of collecting Avios.

“No matter where your Avios are taking you, you will earn one Avios for every £1 exchanged helping you build your balance for your next trip away.”
