Your British Airways Credit Card Reviews (28)

Completely useless

A Companion Voucher sounds great. It sounds as though you can book a First or Business Class flight, and take your wife/partner for free, except for taxes. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! The voucher is essentially unusable. I have spent the...

A Companion Voucher sounds great. It sounds as though you can book a First or Business Class flight, and take your wife/partner for free, except for taxes. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! The voucher is essentially unusable. I have spent the last few days trying to find any flights that might be be able to use Companion Vouchers. I have tried maybe ten destinations, but the voucher is completely unusable. This is a massive CON! Do not take a British Airways American Express card. I have taken flights all over the world in the last year, but will lose my Silver card.
I don't know whether it is British Airways, or American Express, that is perpetrating this con, but stick with good quality credit cards that do not pretend other benefits.

Membership rewards and airmiles, just brilliant.

I love the BA Amex because of the membership rewards, it's a brilliant aspect of the card. I've triggered bonuses and am well on my way around the world if I transfer them to airmiles!

Love BA Amex but.

I love my BA Amex due to the points I can collect. But, I recently got a letter from AMEX re miscommunication of benefits (some travel delay thing). I think it's pretty poor for a firm like AMEX to make such a basic mistake.

American Express is a reliable company, strong brand and its services are really good. The only inconvenience is the fact that not every places accept American Express Credit Card, so in a daily basis shops you maybe will need an other credit card. But, I highly recommend Amex as I'm a old customer, never have any problem with them and a I really trust in American Express products and services, even when I lived in South America.

Use it wisely and you'll benefit

So the price went up last year. But it's still the top credit card for travel points: spend £10k and get a companion voucher and over 40k avios (if you hit the sign up bonus as well). Refer others for another 9k avios per time. And once you've got the ...

So the price went up last year. But it's still the top credit card for travel points: spend £10k and get a companion voucher and over 40k avios (if you hit the sign up bonus as well). Refer others for another 9k avios per time. And once you've got the voucher, downgrade to blue and get a pro-rata refund of the fee. Win win. Just don't borrow money with it. Ever!

good customer service, not always the cheapest

great customer service, helpful phone line, great fraud protection emails to verify unusual payments on the go. avios are a nice perk, but not totally convinced on their value in relation to the spend required to generate them and their onward...
