American Express Travel Rewards and Air Miles Cards

 

Enjoy all the benefits, convenience and security of an American Express Credit Card or Charge Card – and experience a variety of travel rewards along the way.

 

Why choose an American Express Travel Rewards and Air Miles Card?

 

If you love to travel, for business or pleasure, an American Express Travel Rewards and Air Miles Card is the perfect travel companion. You can accumulate rewards points faster with every pound you spend on your Credit Card or Charge Card.

 

For example, the American Express® Preferred Rewards Gold Credit Card gives you double Membership Rewards® points for spend made directly with airlines or in a foreign currency. Some of these benefits also come with our Business Cards. Redeem points earned for flights or hotels on business trips or for a well earned break.

 

Rewards can be exchanged for flights, holidays or hotel bookings or, with some Cards, a combination of all three. Our premium Travel Rewards Cards also offer VIP benefits, like help with your travel arrangements, preferential upgrades on travel and hotel bookings, and discounts with our luxury cruise partners.

 

You can also enjoy access to exclusive airport lounges, and extra help and financial coverage for travel problems like flight delays, missed connections and delayed luggage.

 

Also, any American Express customer can enjoy American Express Invites®, which reserves tickets to some of the hottest shows in town exclusively for our Cardmembers. Whether your passion is music, film, dining or theatre, we can get you closer to the action.
