Avios booking advice please

We're looking to fly Aer Lingus for the first time next year. I've become an AerClub member complete with an Avios number.
Question is how do I make an Avios booking on line, or do I have to call AL or maybe BA.
I will have to move some Avios across from BA to complete the booking but I guess that would happen automatically if I called.
Thanks for advice.

You do not need to be an Aer Club member to make Avios bookings.

If you want to make an Avios booking for Aer Lingus, you can either call BAEC and make your booking through their call centre, or you can "Combine Your Avios" and send Avios from your BAEC account to your AerClub account and make your booking online on the avios.com website.

Again, you don't have to move Avios across, and it certainly won't happen automatically. You would have to transfer them yourself.

Doesn't hurt to check both sites in case there is a difference due to taxes

Thanks for the helpful advice. Just need to keep an eye on Ireland hotel openings.
