After Gold comes Premium: Barclays launches new credit card with Eurowings and Miles & More

Summary
  • New Eurowings Premium travel credit card with improved range of benefits

  • Exclusive benefits include free Eurowings seat reservation and travel cancellation insurance

  • New customers receive 5,000 Miles & More award miles as a welcome bonus until 31 December 2022

Barclays is launching a new premium travel credit card in cooperation with Eurowings and Miles & More. With the new Eurowings Credit Card Premium, customers can not only make payments worldwide free of charge and withdraw money abroad free of charge – they also benefit from many other advantages when traveling with Eurowings. These include, for example, free seat reservations, free transportation of sports baggage, and the use of fast lanes at various airports. In addition to this, users earn valuable Miles & More award miles with every card transaction, which they can redeem for as few as 3,000 miles. A Eurowings award flight can be booked for as few as 9,000 miles. It was only in the summer of 2022 that Barclays connected its Eurowings credit card portfolio to the Lufthansa Group's Miles & More loyalty program.

“This year, we have fundamentally revised our Eurowings partner cards. Thanks to Miles & More, our customers now enjoy the benefits of one of the world's leading loyalty programs. And with the new Eurowings Credit Card Premium, we are launching a credit card that is one of the most attractive travel credit cards in Germany thanks to its excellent price/performance ratio,” says Tobias Grieß, CEO of Barclays' European retail business.

“With the Eurowings Credit Card Premium, we are responding even more strongly to the needs of our passengers and offering additional benefits for the entire trip," said Michael Erfert, Head of Sales, Distribution & Digital Eurowings and Managing Director Eurowings Digital GmbH. “From now on, travellers can reserve a seat on board free of charge and are optimally protected with cancellation and travel disruption insurance.”

Within the Barclays credit card portfolio, the Eurowings Credit Card Premium replaces the previous Eurowings Credit Card Gold but is significantly more extensive in its portfolio of services. Customers with the Eurowings Credit Card Premium also receive travel cancellation and disruption insurance as well as the option of free seat reservations on Eurowings flights. If they apply by 31 December 2022, new customers will also receive 5,000 Miles & More welcome miles.

For existing customers of the Eurowings Credit Card Gold, the introduction of the new Eurowings Credit Card Premium will not change anything: they will continue to use their existing card with the same benefits and features as before. If they wish to upgrade to the Eurowings Credit Card Premium, this is possible at any time.
