About airline credit cards

Often referred to as airmiles credit cards, airline credit cards are simply another type of reward card.

You can collect 'Avios' points through stores and banks such as Tesco, Lloyds TSB, and Marks and Spencer, and they can be redeemed on things like flights, hotel stays, or even tickets for gigs and theme parks.

The cards below are ordered by interest rate (APR).

What are airline or Airmiles credit cards?

Airline credit cards are reward-based credit cards which allow you to earn points, or 'Avios' - the new replacement scheme for Airmiles - when used for purchases. Points can be collected via stores and financial providers such as Tesco, Lloyds TSB, and Marks and Spencer.

Unlike with Airmiles, the Avios scheme lets you use points for one-way flights and some flights in and out of different airports.

Should I get an Airmiles credit card?

Airline credit cards are only suitable if you’re able to pay your balance in full every month. Some cards also come with hefty annual fees of up to £150, though these cards normally offer higher rates of reward.

If you’re looking to borrow, you’d be better off focusing on getting the lowest interest rates – see the top 0% purchase credit cards and low APR deals for more.
