With all the excitement currently buzzing around Iberia’s extremely generous Avios offer, I’ve been busy getting reacquainted with Iberia Plus, and more specifically the Iberia website. To cut a long story short, the site has plenty of foibles that those who have taken advantage of the current promo (like me!) will soon become all too familiar with.
I’ll write about the quirks – and hopefully the solutions! – as they crop up in my own searches.
Before we get onto anything more complicated though, there are a couple of basic steps that Iberia makes unnecessarily challenging:
- Logging into your account
- Navigating to the part of the website where you can actually search for award space.
How to log in to Iberia Plus
This should be mindlessly simple, but one aspect has periodically foiled me for years.
The first part is easy enough: head to the Iberia site, click “Log in /Registration” at the top right of the page, then just enter your details and click “Go”.
The problem is that, for reasons unknown, Iberia Plus HATES Google Chrome – and quite often pretends I’ve entered my passcode incorrectly (amongst lots of other errors) if I try to access my account using Chrome. Internet Explorer seems to work fine, and I’m reliably informed that Firefox is ok too.
If you’re having trouble, don’t waste your time changing your passcode etc – just switch browser.
How to search for Avios award space on the Iberia site
If you try to locate a search page yourself, you’ll probably (eventually) end up being presented with a screen like the one below, which is quite pretty but basically useless:
You’ll then likely see a lot of of this…
… And quite possibly a bit of this:
So, forget all that nonsense. Instead, just go to this page here and sign in.
It’s not pretty and it’s still far from ideal, but it’s the best I’ve managed to find on the Iberia site so far.
If anyone has any better ways, PLEASE share in the comments!
