Start your next overseas journey with a little extra on us

Begin with a $200 travel credit every year

There’s nothing like a weekend getaway to recharge your batteries, or an overseas trip to broaden your horizons and inspire the senses. And there’s nothing like the Platinum Card to make the experience extra special. From 15 April 2016, once your annual Card fee has been billed to your account each year, you will receive a $300 Travel Credit. What’s more, you can use this credit to book travel for anyone you choose.

You can use the $300 Travel Credit towards any eligible prepaid flights, hotels or car hire when booking these travel arrangements online with American Express Travel at or by phone through your Platinum Travel Service on 1800 673 760. Cruise and experiences are excluded.

This Platinum-only benefit is just one of the ways to get more from your Card when travelling.
