Aer Lingus Avios Value

How much are Aer Lingus Avios worth? Well, pretty close to nothing. Not to say that there isn’t some availability, there is. However, more often than not you’ll find yourself frustrated as you search in (near)vain for award availability. This month, in my latest valuation, we’re calculating Aer Lingus Avios are worth less than 1 cent a piece, $0.0055 to be exact.

Combined ACRV $0.0055
Intro-Europe Non-zero Average 0.0155
International Non-zero Average 0.0139

Aer Lingus Value Distribution 02.13.18

Adding insult to injury, the limited award space available all comes padded with hefty tax/fuel/carrier surcharges. In some cases(my London/NY city pair), the fees charged to book an award ticket were actually more than available cash alternatives.

While I don’ have much good news when it comes to the value of an Aer Lingus Avios, all is not lost. Our best redemption for the most recent reckoning was a business class seat being offered for 69,000 Avios and $411.28 in cash. The lowest priced cash alternative was $3,433, giving us a great $0.0438/mile value.
