From 9th October – 13th November 2019, receive mystery bonus miles with any Buy Miles purchase. And, for a limited time only, we’ve reset your purchase limit so you can purchase up to 100,000 more miles this year*. 


*The Buy Miles purchase limit has been reset to 100,000 until the end of 2019. A member can purchase a total of 100,000 miles between 9th October and 31st December 2019 GMT 23:59 in increments of 1,000 miles. After this period, the purchase limit will reset.

How does it work?

It's easy to use. Just log in to your account (if you haven't already), and then head to 'Buy miles' a little bit down the page. Then you'll have the option to choose how many miles you buy. Fill in your payment details, click 'Pay now' and you're done. The miles will be in your account the same day*, so you can book that upgrade in no time.

Account is due to expire? Buying miles will extend the account for a further three years from purchase date.

How much does it cost?

Every purchase comes with a one-off £15 transaction fee, and then it costs £15 for every 1,000 miles. So if you buy 1,000 miles you'll pay £30, and if you buy 5,000 miles you'll pay £90.

Anything else I need to know?

Miles are available to buy in increments of 1,000 miles, and you can purchase up to 100,000 miles in the calendar year. If you’re buying towards a reward flight, remember to check flight availability first. 

Account is due to expire? Buying miles will extend the account for a further three years from purchase date.
