Prepare for lift-off with the British Airways American Express® Accelerating Business Card
No business is too small to reap the benefits of the British Airways American Express® Accelerating Business Card – a Card created with small and medium-sized business owners in mind. The product of a British Airways and American Express partnership, it offers SMEs a range of outstanding benefits for both their company and its employees, meaning you and your loved ones – or colleagues – can be winging your way around the world, for business or pleasure. Let’s take a look...
Up, up and away
For a limited time only, American Express is offering a bonus of 60,000 Avios when you become a Cardmember. The bonus is paid if you are approved and your business spends £5,000 on your Card within the first three months of Cardmembership.* That’s a lot of flying miles (enough for two return flights from London to more than 50 destinations), hotels stays, or car rentals which you can choose to spend as you like, on yourself or others.* Maybe time to sing “Start spreading the news – New York, New York” or “Woah, I’m going to Barbados”?
Receive 10,000 bonus Avios for every £20,000 spent on your Card up to three times each calendar year. That’s a chance to earn up to 30,000 Avios every year for £60,000 spent.* As well as flights, hotel stays and car rental, you could spend some of those Avios on memorable tours and experiences around the world, as well as exclusive wine offers.
Firing on both cylinders
With the British Airways American Express Accelerating Business Card, your travel plans will be turbo-charged. If you’re not already a member of the Executive Club, you’ll be automatically enrolled and will earn 1.5 Avios for every pound spent. And, because your business is automatically enrolled into the On Business programme (a loyalty scheme that helps firms of all size save on flights), it will receive two On Business Points for every eligible £1 spent with British Airways. That could either help cut the company’s travel bill – or perhaps bring that family holiday to Antigua and Barbuda or Dubai a bit closer?
You can get up to 99 complimentary Employee Cards for your employees when you sign up for the British Airways American Express Accelerating Business Card – so that means everyone can begin to make travel plans. Yes, you can consolidate your business expenditure and track all spend under one Business Account. This means you can start planning your trip when you have saved enough Avios – whether that’s a Highland fling up to Edinburgh or a whirl of flamenco in Madrid.
Start packing your next getaway
Your Card will pay for tickets, keep track of how much your business is spending, earn reward flights for you and your employees, and offer protection wherever you go in the world. American Express’ Global Assist® helpline is available 24/7, and there’s insurance cover for accidents, inconvenience and emergency cash. Whether your destination of choice is Bangkok or Boston, Cape Town or Copenhagen, the world will get a little bit smaller.
