RBC Personal Avion Points Credit Cards

RBC sign

With the RBC Avion Rewards Program you can redeem points for merchandise, gas, gift cards, financial rewards vouchers, charitable donations, experiences by RBC Rewards and travel. As usual, travel offers the highest value reward. There are three ways to redeem Avion points for travel:

  • fixed point redemption for flights;
  • pay 100 points per $1 for flights using the Orbitz online booking tool or call RBC Rewards Travel; or,
  • convert points to other rewards programs (British Airways Avios [One World Alliance], American Airlines AAdvantage [One World Alliance], Cathay Pacific Asia miles, WestJet).

RBC frequently offers 30%-50% bonuses for transferring points. For example, see the current Special Offer of 30% more Avios points when you convert your RBC Rewards points between now and July 31, 2018.

Avios points don’t expire, and there is no cap on the miles you can earn.

RBC currently has three personal Avion Rewards credit cards.
