FROM the cool and cutting-edge design scene in Copenhagen to the hypnotic charm of Cairo’s bustling markets; if you fancy exploring a new city, country or continent, now is the time to get that great escape on track.
A world of adventure awaits, but you could benefit from a host of added extras by taking time to plan your next big break. Using a rewards-based credit card such as the
British Airways American Express® Premium Plus Card could help transform your everyday spending into flights, travel upgrades, Companion Vouchers and lots more.
It’s simple – the more you put on, the sooner you could be taking off on your next trip. Virtually every time you use your Card, you’ll collect Avios which can be redeemed against anything from a stylish European escape to a far flung adventure. That’s not all; you can also convert your Avios into flight upgrades, luxury hotel stays across the globe and car hire.
If that’s got you thinking about where your spending could take you, imagine where you could explore with an extra 30,000 bonus Avios. That is what you’ll receive when you spend £3,000 in the first three months of Cardmembership, and are approved before 1 August 2012, with a British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card.
That’s enough bonus Avios for two Euro Traveller British Airways return flights to Copenhagen*. A compact city of spires, cobbled squares and canals that makes fine dining, boutique shopping and gallery hopping an irresistibly effortless experience. Scandinavia’s most cosmopolitan city is a hotbed of contemporary art, modern architecture and stylish living. It’s a haven of culinary creativity too – book a table at Nimb for cutting-edge Nordic cuisine in the quirky setting of Tivoli Gardens.
And because some experiences are best shared, spend £10,000 or more on your Premium Plus Card within a year of taking it out and you’ll receive a Companion Voucher. That means if you use your Avios for a reward flight, a guest gets to go with you, in the same cabin for no extra Avios. And because it’s valid for 24 months, you could build up enough Avios to plan a trip for four by your second year as a Cardmember. All you have to pay are the taxes, fees and charges for each ticket. If you are flying to zones 1-3, e.g. Moscow or Marrakech, you just need to pay our Reward Flight Saver - that’s the Avios fare and £27 per person return (£34 for premium cabins) - and the airline taxes, fees and charges are taken care of for you.
Spend around £850 on your Premium Plus Card each month, and combine it with your introductory bonus Avios, you could earn enough to take a guest to somewhere like New York and back in a year*. Just think what you could spend on Fifth Avenue by saving on flights. Or why not step off the tourist trail to visit West Village, where the tree-lined cobbled streets have remained virtually unchanged since the 19th century, and stop off for lunch at the renowned Spotted Pig.
You’ll receive 1.5 Avios for virtually every £1 you spend and 3 Avios for every £1 you spend direct on British Airways flights and holidays. Just imagine, your shopping sprees in the UK could see you wandering through a bustling treasure-filled souk in Cairo*. Exploring this vibrant historical metropolis will have even the most seasoned of travellers enchanted by its medieval beauty.
