How do I get a Companion Voucher?

As a British Airways American Express® Cardmember, you are entitled to receive a second seat for a companion of your choice on the same flight and cabin as you. Just meet the spend criteria within your Cardmembership anniversary year and you should be ready to go. All you will have to pay is the taxes, fees, and charges for you and your companion’s tickets.

British Airways American Express® Credit Cardmembers

From 1 September 2021, it will be quicker and easier for new and existing British Airways American Express Cardmembers to earn and book their Companion Voucher. The Companion Voucher spend threshold will be reduced to £12,000 spend per Card anniversary year.

Companion Vouchers are valid for 12 months and are redeemable when you book an Avios reward flight in Euro Traveller and World Traveller cabins (economy class) only. Companion Vouchers can only be used when redeeming Avios for a British Airways reward flight seat in economy only, paid in full with Avios.

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

British Airways American Express® Premium Plus Cardmembers

Booking a Companion Voucher will be easier with enhanced redemption seat availability in Club World. You can get a voucher when you spend £10,000 each Membership year on the Card, which you can use to take a companion with you.

Companion Vouchers are valid for 24 months and are redeemable when you book an Avios reward flight in any cabin. Companion Vouchers can only be used when redeeming Avios for a British Airways reward flight seat in any cabin, paid in full with Avios. 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!
