What’s more, with complimentary additional Cards you can also collect Avios on your friends’ and family’s spend.

We’ve some nice little bonuses, too: spend £3,000 within the first three months of Cardmembership and you’ll receive 25,000 additional Avios2. That’s enough for a return Club Europe flight to Europe from London. Already a Cardmember? Earn up to 45,000 bonus Avios per calendar year when you introduce friends and family members to the Card (once they apply and have been approved)3. So all you need do is decide where you want to go.

Ts and Cs

Take a friend with a two-for-one Companion Voucher

Fancy whisking a loved one off for a romantic beach break or a once-in-a-lifetime adventure? Spend £10,000 or more on your Card within an anniversary year, and you will receive a British Airways American Express Companion Voucher4 (a complimentary second reward seat for the same flight and cabin, on a BA mainline flight), valid for two years. All you have to do is pay the taxes, fees and carrier charges. Terms and Conditions apply. Subject to status and availability.


It’s the gift that keeps on giving

As a Cardmember, if you purchase flights on your Card, you’ll benefit from Travel Accident Insurance and Travel Inconvenience Insurance (in case of flight cancellations, delays and delayed baggage), at no additional charge. You will also receive Refund Protection and Payment Protection on eligible items that you buy with your Card within 90 days of purchase5.

Just one of the many reasons why you’ll never want to travel again without your British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card.


Our Cardmembers love the benefits

Here’s why the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card is so popular with our Cardmembers, in their own words:

“I loved the idea that I could be rewarded for my spending. I tell everyone and anyone that will listen to me to get a British Airways Express Premium Plus Card. I use my card to pay for everything I can, from groceries and travel to petrol and nights out. I’ve even transferred my Tesco Clubcard vouchers into Avios points...” – Gill Souter, 43, Sussex.
