How do I get a Companion Voucher?

You can enjoy 2-for-1 travel
Your Companion Voucher entitles you to receive a second seat for a companion on the same flight and cabin as you.

Companion Vouchers can only be redeemed on available reward flights. All you’ll have to pay is the Taxes, Fees and Charges for you and your companion’s tickets.

Greater Flexibility
British Airways American Express Premium Plus Cardmembers can earn one Companion Voucher each year which is valid for 24 months. You could use 2 vouchers at the same time on a trip for 4 people, if:

  • Earn one Companion Voucher in year one and another in year two, and use both before the first one expires.
  • Hold on to your Companion Voucher while you accrue even more Avios on your Card, so the more you spend the more destinations you can choose from.

British Airways American Express Credit Cardmembers, and British Airways American Express Premium Cardmembers, can earn one Companion Voucher each year which is valid for 12 months.

You can take absolutely anyone as your companion – it doesn’t have to be someone from your family.
