The most recent green list update brought some much-needed good news to the summer travel season. Multiple destinations were moved from amber to green, and there’s no need to look up places you might have never heard of on a map — South Georgia, anyone?

The popular Balearic islands are now on the green list, though make sure you note the latest entry requirements.

If you’ve never been to this beautiful part of Spain, you can expect plenty of sunshine, beautiful beaches, delicious Spanish food and siestas and sangria — whatever takes your fancy.

With a flood of bookings, some cash fares did rise sharply since the green list update, but there is still good Avios availability to all three of the Balearic Islands British Airways flies to — Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza — using Reward Flight Savers.

It’s not that every flight is available with Avios, but there is good availability. If you’re sitting on a big pile of Avios from all those cancelled or postponed trips and desperate for a holiday, this could be the time to splurge on Club Europe.

All these destinations require the same amount of Avios, plus taxes and fees:

  • Euro Traveller — 7,250 Avios each way off-peak, 8,250 Avios peak
  • Club Europe — 13,500 Avios each way off-peak, 15,750 Avios peak

Most dates in July and August are priced as peak dates.

Using the handy Seat Spy tool, I’ve found at least two seats flying British Airways with Avios on the following dates:
