Superior travel and lifestyle benefits for you and your family.


VIP airport lounge access - for you and your partner

Regardless of which type of ticket you hold, or the airline you're flying, a worldwide programme2 of over 500 VIP airport lounges awaits you with Priority Pass. Any of which you and your partner can slip into, and feel more than welcomed, with complimentary food, drinks, newspapers, books and in the majority of lounges, internet access.

Complimentary upgrades - pleasant surprises every time you travel

It might be roomier aircraft seats than the ones you booked. Or a family-sized luxury suite instead of separate rooms, even an upgrade to a bigger car. When you travel with The Platinum Card, expect plenty of treats along the way, courtesy of our airline, hotel and car hire partners..

Finest Hotels

As a Platinum Cardmember, you effortlessly join the world's elite travellers through access to the most prestigious hotel programmes, including Small Luxury Hotels and Fine Hotels and Resorts. Enjoy extra personal courtesies such as room upgrades, complimentary continental breakfasts and more convenient check-in and check-out times. You can also enjoy complimentary membership to Starwood Preferred Guest® Gold Level2.

Travel insurance benefits - even by comprehensive standards, they're comprehensive*

With the Platinum Card you, your partner, your children and up to 5 Supplementary Cardmembers, their partners and their children are protected by some of the most comprehensive global annual travel insurance benefits1 available anywhere. For example, if you're forced to abandon your trip before departure, you will be refunded up to €10,000 towards the cost of your airline and excursion tickets. Or, if you or a member of your family has to go into hospital while you're away, we'll arrange for your emergency treatment fees to be settled directly: up to €3.5 million. When you're hiring a car, it's good to know that the optional insurance benefits are already included with your Platinum Card. You're even protected whilst skiing and snowboarding and your children are protected with gap year insurance benefits for a whole twelve months on any one trip.
