With your British Airways American Express Card it’s easy to earn Avios:

- Use your Card for everyday spending and bigger items — from restaurants and petrol to furniture and electronics — you'll be surprised how quickly the Avios add up
- Use your Card to book travel with British Airways or oneworld® partners and you'll collect Avios as an Executive Club Member2 as well as on your Card spend1.

- Paying bills with your Card is another great way to maximise the Avios you earn

Earn a Companion Voucher
Spend £20,000 on your Card within a Card membership year and you will earn a Companion Voucher, valid for 12 months6. Redeem your Avios on a qualifying British Airways flight and you can use your voucher to take a companion with you on the same flight, in the same cabin. Please note, you are responsible for paying the flight taxes, fees and carrier charges on their British Airways American Express Card.
This is the fun part. You can redeem your Avios to jet off to faraway lands, stay in luxury hotels, and get around with quality car rental.
- Redeem your Avios for qualifying flights with British Airways or their oneworld alliance partners (terms, taxes, fees and carrier charges apply)
- You can also redeem your Avios for cabin upgrades, hotel accommodation and Avis car rental or for a range of experiences you can enjoy either on your travels or closer to home
- And don't forget, if you earn a Companion Voucher by spending £20,000 on your Card within a Card membership year, you can use it for another ticket on the same flight and in the same cabin when you redeem your Avios on a qualifying British Airways flight6. Taxes, fees and carrier charges apply.
Redeeming your Avios is easy. Explore all your options and a world of destinations in the Avios section of the British Airways website.
