Bank of Ireland has teamed up with Aer Lingus to introduce its newest credit card offering. The new co-branded Aer Credit Card offers all the convenience of a regular credit card but comes with a whole host of unique travel rewards for customers.

Each year, customers who sign up to the card will receive: 
1) Two free return fares   to Europe  
2) Two fast track and priority boarding passes 
3) Two lounge passes 
4) Worldwide Multi-trip Family Travel Insurance, including winter sports 
5) Customers can collect 1 Avios for every €1 spent on Aer Lingus products and services and 1 Avios for every €4 spent on all other transactions

The rewards package from which cardholders can benefit is worth in excess of €200 upon receipt of the card, and increases to a value in excess of €400 when reward flights become available, notwithstanding the additional benefits which Avios enables.

Aer Credit Card will cost €7.99 per month plus government stamp duty of €30pa with standard annual interest rate of 16.12% variable and Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 26.6% variable for purchases.

Speaking this week, Head of Retail Cards at Bank of Ireland, Christine Hamill said, "Aer Credit Card will enhance customers travel experience with lounge access, fast passes, travel insurance and free fares to reward them for their loyalty. In addition the extended Avios earned can be used to save money on flights, hotels and car hire." 

Director of Network Revenue and Loyalty at Aer Lingus, Susanne Carberry added, "The launch of Aer Credit Card is an exciting next step for AerClub which recently welcomed its one millionth member and we are delighted to partner with Bank of Ireland."
