Fly Business Class For Free!
Only pay the taxes
But wait, it gets even better!! You can take a companion with you for free (plus taxes)! That’s right you and a companion can fly Business Class or even First Class (or Economy) for free and only pay the taxes!
It’s easier than you may think. This is what you need to do:
Here is a real-life actual example of what you can achieve. I booked return Business Class flights for me and my partner from London Heathrow to Cape Town. It cost me 180,000 Avios points, 1 Companion voucher and £450 taxes per person.
So just to be clear, I am paying a total of £450 to fly British Airways Business Class from London to South Africa (and back)!! Also, my flights are during the peak Christmas season. I did exactly the same deal last year.
If you apply for the credit card using my referral link, you will be awarded 26,000 bonus Avios when you spend £3,000 in your first three months of Card membership. Terms apply. This is more than if you apply directly from the American Express website and it’s enough for a one-way ticket from London to Dubai (+£50 taxes)!!
If you are flying solo, you can also use your companion voucher to get a 50% discount on the number of Avios needed for your chosen flight!
To save time before applying, it’s best to make sure you can say yes to the following:
Set up a standing order / direct debit to clear your credit card balance in full every month so you do not incur any interest charges.
