How it works

Trying Plusgrade is easy and simple

  • When you reserve your ticket, you will receive an email offering you the opportunity to purchase an upgrade.
  • Follow the steps and enter the information requested.
  • Enter the amount you want to bid to fly in tap|executive.
  • You must enter your bid, using credit card or TAP Miles&Go miles*, at least 36 hours before the flight.
  • If your bid is accepted, payment will be taken automatically from the credit card, or your TAP Miles&Go account, you registered with the auction and a confirmation of the transaction will be sent to you by email;
  • If your bid is not approved, you will pay nothing and keep your original ticket.
Please note that not all routes offer this option, so you may not receive an email inviting you to place a Plusgrade bid.
If you prefer, you can also enter your flight information on this page and see if your flight is eligible or not.

*When making your bid, you should take the following conditions into account:
1) If the booking has more than one passenger, the debit of miles or the payment by credit card, will be processed in the account of the one to whom the email is directed. If the upgrade process is started manually, the client will be the one who is identified at that time to whom the miles debit will be made;
2) The miles used as a method of payment are non-refundable.
3) To complete the bid with TAP Miles&Go miles, make sure your account has enough miles; otherwise your bid will not be accepted.
4) Plusgrade is not applicable to group bookings, trips with babies and in some special services.

Note: If you have a booking code that corresponds to the airline tickets of more than one passenger and want to make an individual bid, please contact TAP Air Portugal so your booking can be split. If a travel agent made your booking, they will separate it.
