If you are a business frequent flyer who takes a dozen of flights every year, and you have a say in which corporate credit cards to have, then it makes sense to get a business credit card which offers air miles as a perk.
There are a number of cards that offer air miles as a reward. However, be warned as different cards give different rewards with different airlines, so if you intend to use the air miles for business, make sure your company is using a business credit card associated with an airline partnership which flies to the destinations you use more often.
We’ve done a bit of research and put together the details of those credit cards which currently offer air miles as their main reward.*
A very popular air miles scheme is Avios, which is run by British Airways. The Amex British Airways card gives you 1 Avios point for every £1 you spend, with various bonuses available.
Lloyds Bank Avios Reward cards give different amounts of rewards depending on whether you opt for a MasterCard or American Express card. MasterCard will enable you to collect 1.25 Avios points for every £5 you spend or 1.25 for every £1 with American Express.
Virgin Atlantic offers two cards – White and Black – which give varying amounts of Flying Club Miles for every £1 spent.
Miles & More is a credit card run by Lufthansa with the option of Visa or American Express. With the Visa card, you will receive 1.5 award miles for every £1 spent in the first six months, with 1.5 for every £2 spent thereafter; with American Express, you will receive 2 award miles for every £1 in the first six months, with a subsequent 1.5 award miles for every £1.
Emirates Skywards cards offer a credit card account or an Elite account with rewards ranging from 1 mile for every £1 used previously spent to 4 miles for every £1 spent with Emirates itself.
