You’ll earn points every time you book a flight using your card, and you can keep topping up as much as you like - or exchange your points for discounted or free flights.

Airmiles Rewards Schemes
If you like to travel to foreign destinations by air, by using the right kind of Airmiles credit card, you could earn points to help you take your next flight for less.
For every pound you spend on an Airmiles credit card, you'll be rewarded with a number of miles which you can trade in for discounted tickets, upgrades, or even free flights. However, these rewards don't come for free - there's typically a cost involved in redeeming your points.
Airmile reward schemes are only worthwhile if you are able to pay off your monthly balance in full, otherwise you'll find that the interest you pay outweighs the reward you’ll earn. If you do manage to pay off the balance, you'll effectively be earning points whilst you spend.
