Business travel is on the up. And business owners can now turn every pound of business spend into a well-earned break or a far-flung escape, with a business Card that not only gives back on work-related costs and purchases, but also helps to unlock your own personal travel aspirations.

The new tiered Avios Annual Bonus now gives Cardmembers 10,000 bonus Avios for every £20,000 of spend1, up to three times per calendar year. This means that businesses can earn an additional 30,000 bonus Avios every year to spend on flights, upgrades, hotel stays, and car hire for business trips, or a well-deserved week away with friends or family to recharge in the sun.

Plus, for a limited time2, new Cardmembers can earn a Welcome Bonus of 60,000 Avios when they spend £5,000 in the first three months – one of the most rewarding bonus offers ever from American Express.

This, combined with the Card’s earn rate of 1.5 Avios for every £1 spent3 means you can earn up to 120,000 total Avios each year, when you spend £60,000 on the Card – enough Avios for two peak economy return flights4 from London to destinations such as New York or Dubai, that are perfect for both business travel and holidays!
