Barclays Arrival Plus Card Gets Transfer Partners
Here is some unexpected new from Barclays. The Barclays Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard now has travel partners.
This is a card that hasn’t been available for a few years. But those who have it, can now transfer points to eight airline partners. These are the same partners and ratios that are offered for the Arrival Premier card, which is also not available for applications.
Here are the partners and the transfer ratios as reported by Frequent Miler:
- Air France/KLM Flying Blue – 7,000:5,000
- Etihad Guest – 7,000:5,000
- Japan Airlines – 11,500:5,000 or 22,500:10,000
- Qantas – 7,000:5,000
- EVA Air – 7,000:5,000
- Intermiles – 7,000:5,000
- Aeromexico – 7,000:5,000
- Air Canada Aeroplan – 8,500:5,000
The card also has a 5% redemption bonus, which makes these ratios a bit better.
It’s surprising that Barclays is working on the Arrival Plus card. Maybe the card is making a comeback, or a new card might launch.
