Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase an upgrade to platinum? We're planning a break to Dubai in June and notice that one of the hotels offer free access to the Executive Club room for Platinum members which could be a big saving on drinks and breakfast!

While I am not a fan of accumulating various credit cards, I just got the card myself for use while I'm travelling. They have been offering 80K bonus points (instant Platinum), 5pts per $ at PC hotels, and 10% rewards points back to you when used. [No, Chase doesn't have me on their payroll :-) ]
I think you do have time to do this. It will take 3 weeks to get the card in the mail. You need to make a purchase to get the 80K points and Platinum status.

Fly_Navy gave you probably the best option as he stated. Yes you can purchase priority club point annually (up to 50,000) "reach status upgrade Platinum. Although expensive normally, they do have a 50% bonus offer going on right now. So depending on how many points you need to get to Platinum, it is another option. Find out further here:

Hmmmm I thought there was a credit card for the UK too. I would also ask if you are going to be staying at Intercontinental Hotels, because if you are, you may want to look at purchasing the Ambassador level, as I believe it will get you upgraded as well. I am not going to lie, I am not too sure about the Ambassador program, but JBa has provided a ton of information on other posts of his, about the whole program. Enjoy your trip.
