Transferring points to Avios can yield high value through short-haul trips with British Airways in Europe and their partners American Airlines and Alaska Airlines in the U.S. and Canada.
Avios can also be used to fly with a handful of oneworld and airline partners. They can also be converted to Qatar Avios and redeemed for 5-star travel in Qatar's popular QSuites which can offer even higher value.
Avion Premium points cannot be transferred to British Airways Avios.
Avion points to WestJet
Avion Elite points and Avion Premium points can be transferred to WestJet at a rate of 1 point for $0.01 in WestJet Dollars.
WestJet Dollars are typically worth face value meaning that 1 WestJet Dollar is equal to 1 dollar towards travel purchased through WestJet. This means transfers to WestJet will give your Avion points a value of 1 cent each.
For Avion Elite point-earning cards, this will devalue your points since you can get as much higher using the Air Travel Redemption Schedule. For Avion Premium point-earning cards, this will be a solid redemption option, especially for ION cardholder holders who can only redeem points for 0.58 cents apiece.
Avion points to Hudson's Bay
Avion Elite points and Avion Premium points can be transferred to Hudson's Bay Rewards at a 1:2 ratio. This means 1,000 points can be converted to 2,000 Hudson's Bay Points.
Hudson's Bay Points have an average value of 0.5 cents each meaning that transferring points from RBC Rewards will give your points a value of 1 cent each.
As with WestJet, this will be a drop in value for Avion Elite points and an equal or better value for Avion Premium points.
