Please read:

1. The representative APR is the ‘Annual Percentage Rate’ of charge. The APR is designed to help you compare and understand the cost of credit. It takes into account the interest rate that we charge on purchases, and any additional costs in connection with the product, such as the annual fee. It’s shown as an annualised percentage, making it easier for you to compare other credit products. Rates can vary for several reasons. Your purchase and cash interest rates will move up and down in line with the Bank of England Base Rate. Base Rate changes will not apply to your promotional interest rates. For more information click here. Rates may also vary based on your individual circumstances, either when you apply for a product or afterwards.

2. Rates can vary for several reasons. Your purchase and cash interest rates will move up and down in line with the Bank of England Base Rate.

Rates may also vary based on your individual circumstances, either when you apply for a product or afterwards.
3. The minimum monthly payment will be the highest of £25 (or total amount owing if less); or any interest fees plus 2% of the remaining balance. This Credit Card is not intended for long-term borrowing; paying the minimum payment will cost more and takes longer to clear your balance.

4. Missing a payment incurs charges, and can impact your credit rating making it difficult or expensive to get credit in the future. Failure to keep up repayments could result in; the cost of your debt growing; legal action (and associated costs); or a charging order resulting in repossession of your property.

5. To maintain any promotional interest rate, keep payments up to date and stay within the credit limit. Interest rates, fees and charges may be increased (if there are changes in your circumstances or our costs). Some types of card use are more costly (e.g. cash withdrawal).

6. You can withdraw from this Agreement by contacting us up to 14 days after the day you received your Card.

7. By proceeding with this upgrade you agree that your current preferences will be carried forward to your new agreement, including how and when you receive any credit limit increases and how you receive your statements

8. If you have already reached the £10,000 spend threshold, you may receive a Companion Voucher that is valid for 12 months, rather than 24 months. If you would like to extend the validity of the Companion Voucher to 24 months, please contact British Airways customer service directly and they will look into extending the validity of the Companion Voucher for you.
