Your saved cards
If you love to travel, for business or pleasure, an American Express Travel Rewards Card is the perfect travel companion. That's because you will accumulate rewards points at a higher rate with every dollar you spend on your credit or charge Card. For example, the American Express® Gold Rewards Card gives you double Membership Rewards® points for virtually all travel-related spend, as well as double points on virtually all spend made whilst abroad.
Rewards can be exchanged for flights, holidays or hotel bookings or, with some Cards, a combination of all three. Our Travel Rewards Cards also offer great benefits, like the Platinum Lounge Benefit1 , companion flight tickets2 , and travel insurance coverages.
