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 points' a little bit down the page. Then you'll have the option to choose how many points you buy. Fill in your payment details, click 'Pay now' and you're done. The points will be in your account the same day*, so you can book that upgrade in no time.

How much does it cost?

Every purchase comes with a one-off £15 transaction fee. You can purchase points in increments of 1,000. It costs £15 for every 1,000 points you purchase. For example, if you buy 1,000 points you'll pay £30, if you buy 5,000 points you'll pay £90 and if you buy 10,000 points you'll pay £165. 

Anything else I need to know?

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