Travel Credit Cards - Reviews
We've reviewed a variety of hotel, airline and general rewards cards to determine which cards offer the most worth. Our ratings consider not only the monetary value rewards and sign-up bonuses, but also the ease of the redemption and the total value of each card's features. Our goal is to help you find a well-rounded card that offers large earnings and lets you redeem those earnings for travel rewards and perks that are truly valuable.
Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card
Last reviewed: January 13, 2020
For fans of Marriott hotels, the Marriott Bonvoy Bold card is a reasonable option for earning extra Marriott points and qualifying for elite status without having to pay an annual fee, though the card’s rate for earning points is measly.
Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard®
Last reviewed: January 23, 2020
The AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard offers a host of great airline benefits and a large sign-up bonus with a spending requirement that — unfortunately — puts it out of reach of most cardholders.
TD Aeroplan Visa credit card
Last reviewed: February 13, 2019
You won’t have trouble earning a free flight in your first year with this premium airline card: The TD AeroPlan Visa Signature card offers a substantial sign-up bonus in the card’s first year; but you’ll have to fly to Canada often after the card’s first year to make up for its pricey annual fee.
PenFed Pathfinder Rewards American Express card
Last reviewed: November 14, 2019
For no annual fee, the PenFed Pathfinder card offers a decent sign-up bonus and a high rewards rate on travel purchases. This offer is no longer available.
American Express® Green Card
Last reviewed: January 16, 2020
While it can’t compete with the luxury travel perks of other American Express cards, the American Express® Green Card is a solid choice for travel-minded cardholders who want to earn points while sticking to a budget.
Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: November 12, 2019
Cardholders on the search for a more flexible rewards card may be able to make good use of Wyndham’s large network of budget hotels, though they’ll have to watch out for the short expiration date on rewards points.
PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa Signature Card
Last reviewed: October 9, 2019
With an affordable APR and some of the best rewards you can get on gas and grocery purchases, the PenFed Platinum Rewards card is a great card for heavy-spending families.
Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card
Last reviewed: January 8, 2020
The interest rate is reasonable – although not great – but the array of other features make the VentureOne Rewards Card worthy of consideration.
Drury Gold Key Club credit card
Last reviewed: February 13, 2019
The Drury Gold Key Club card offers frequent Drury guests a generous point bonus on hotel stays, a decent APR and a good sign-up bonus in the card’s first year, but you may not get much use out of the card if you don’t travel relatively frequently.
SunTrust Travel Rewards card
Last reviewed: February 22, 2019
With a low APR and a triple point bonus on airfare, hotels and car rental purchases, this is a good card to use for travel; however, don’t count on using it for everyday purchases since you won’t get much value out of the card once you return home.
State Farm Rewards Visa
Last reviewed: October 23, 2019
The State Farm Rewards Visa encourages responsibility by making it easy for cardholders to put their rewards toward a mortgage or insurance payment, but its lackluster rewards scheme falls short of its competitors.
TD First Class Visa Signature credit card
Last reviewed: May 20, 2019
The TD First Class Visa Signature card offers an accessible sign-up bonus and triple points on dining and travel, but its below-average rewards rate makes it hard to justify the high annual fee.
