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.

United TravelBank card from Chase

2.7 rating

Though the United TravelBank card offers a good rewards rate for no annual fee, a traditional cash back card would probably be a better choice. This offer is no longer available.

U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Card review

U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Card

4 rating

Packed with lucrative benefits, the new U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve card offers more than enough value to make up for the card’s $400 annual fee – especially if you don’t mind using your phone to make many of your purchases. This offer is no longer available on our site.

The LATAM Visa Signature Card isn’t as generous as some of its competitors; but for cardholders who travel frequently to South America, it offers some modest bonuses on airfare and a smattering of benefits, including an annual 20 percent discount on LATAM purchases and three discounted upgrades per year.

Expedia+ Card from Citi review

Expedia+ Card from Citi

2.4 rating

Fans of discount travel sites would probably be better served by a general rewards card in lieu of the Expedia+ Card, due to its low rewards rate and litany of restrictions on redeeming rewards points. This offer is no longer available on our site.
