One of the most talked about benefits of this Card is the Companion Voucher and here’s where you can find out more about it.
Your Companion voucher is valid for 24 months, creating a number of fantastic possibilities for you:
- You can earn one Companion Voucher in year one and another in year two, and redeem them at the same time to arrange a trip for four people, with two people travelling on Companion Vouchers
- You can hold on to your Companion Voucher while you accrue even more Avios on your Card, and then redeem for flights to more far-flung places or enjoy a trip in an upgraded cabin
- You can begin to plan a trip further in advance and book up to 12 months in advance of when you actually travel
You can take absolutely anyone as your companion – it doesn’t have to be someone from your family. You need to spend just £10,000 on your Card in a year to trigger your Companion Voucher1, but remember, the more you spend, the more Avios you can redeem on a companion trip.
Here’s wishing you some fantastic companion escapes.
