The American Express Platinum card will give you good 2-for-1 business class fares on certain airlines, but it isn't always the best deal for Europe and the Far East. At Cook American Express Travel, we can advise you of the best alternatives: 2-for-1 fares or advanced purchase sale/consolidator tickets that may be cheaper.
If you're traveling last minute to Australia on Qantas, it's a great deal, and for South Africa, the Platinum card program savings are unbeatable.
Overall the Platinum program gives users access to business and first class lounges as well as hotel and cruise upgrades.
But there are still better deals out here for advanced purchase air, and we have access to them. For example: under the Platinum program, one business class ticket to London costs $9,000, and you get one free which gives you an effective cost of $4,500. But there are net fares and sale fare deals out there for under $3,000 apiece.
Cook American Express Travel can provide you with unbeatable deals to Europe, South America and the Far East with savings sometimes greater than the Platinum Program.
