I was thinking that was BA promo, so they would be looking for a transaction from Avis, but is that really the case?
Edit: For the record... BCD=Budget; AWD=Avis. This is an Avis promotion only as far as I know.

I clicked on the "book now" button which opened a new window for booking with Avis. At the top it mentioned the promotion with a "more here" link. The blue stuff below should answer your question about using a COSTO AWD. I've also underlined some important possible "gotchas".
Welcome to the Avis & British Airways Accumulator!
Earn enough BA Miles to claim a return flight in Europe

You already earn 3 BA Miles per 1 spent with Avis, minimum 500 BA Miles per rental. Now, until 31st March 2011, you'll also earn an increasing amount of bonus BA Miles on every rental you take.

Simply rent 6 times between 1st October 2010 and 31st March 2011 and you could earn over 9,000 BA Miles - enough for a return European flight, or a great boost towards a cabin upgrade!

And if you don't achieve all 6 rentals - there are bonus BA Miles for every rental you take, so you'll still boost your miles balance and get closer to your next redemption flight.

Number of Rentals____Minimum Standard BA Miles____Bonus BA Miles
______1___________________500___________________10 0
______2___________________500___________________75 0
______3___________________500___________________75 0
______4___________________500___________________10 00
______5___________________500___________________15 00
______6___________________500___________________20 00
SUB TOTAL ___________3000__________________6000

Grand Total - Over 9,000 BA Miles

Don't forget, use your British Airways co-brand credit card to pay for your Avis rental and you'll earn a further 250 BA Miles from Avis plus the usual BA Miles awarded on your card transaction. There has never been an easier time to boost your miles balance!
