Turn shopping into flying 
You don’t have to fly to top up your Avios. With the British Airways American Express Card, you can collect Avios on virtually every transaction you make. This means that supermarket shops, high street browsing and nights out can all contribute to future flights.

Travel with a friend 
The British Airways American Express Companion Voucher entitles you to receive a second seat for a companion on the same flight as you and in the same cabin when you make a reward booking on a British Airways flight with a BA flight number. This means you can share your savings with loved ones, on anything from romantic beach stays to once-in-a-lifetime adventures.


Put your feet up 
Add a bit of glamour to your trip by using your Avios to upgrade to a Club World or First Class seat. Find out how to upgrade here.

Get assistance anywhere in the world 
Feel secure while you're away with Global Assist 24/7 assistance in your own language, travel inconvenience insurance covering flight cancellations, delays and delayed baggage when flights are purchased on your Card and travel accident insurance up to £250,000 on public transport when you buy your ticket with your Card. You will also receive Refund Protection and Payment Protection on eligible items that you buy with your Card within 90 days of purchase.

Manage on the go 
With the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card, you can access your Account online from anywhere in the world. You can also use the British Airways app to track your Avios and Tier Points, view your digital Membership Card and book reward flights with Avios.


How does the Card work?

Alannah Graviles, 29, is an HR Manager manager from east London. She loves to travel and uses the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card because of its Avios rewards and travel benefits

Alannah is proof that great things can happen when you use your British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card for everyday spending. Last year, she collected enough Avios for a BA Club World return flight to New York – and received a Companion Voucher for her boyfriend, Toby.

“I took out the Card because I loved the idea I could be rewarded for my spending,” says Alannah. “I got a supplementary Card for Toby and we both use it to pay for groceries, travel and nights out, so that we can build up as large a points pot as possible.”

She adds, “When I realised I’d collected enough Avios for a return flight to New York for a long weekend away, I was absolutely thrilled. I was able to use my points to upgrade to Club World, which gave me access to the BA Galleries Lounge at the airport.”

Alannah says she’s now “always on the lookout” for ways to make her money go further. “By using the Card for my everyday expenses I can spend wisely knowing that I’m accumulating rewards at the same time.”
