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.
IHG Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card
Last reviewed: February 8, 2019
The IHG Rewards Club Traveler card is a decent card for IHG loyalists, but its lower annual fee doesn’t justify the lack of valuable perks.
United TravelBank card from Chase
Last reviewed: May 30, 2019
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
Last reviewed: April 26, 2019
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 Platinum Card from American Express
Last reviewed: June 10, 2019
The $550 annual fee might set your head spinning, but the massive list of perks and benefits that comes with American Express’s top-of-the-line luxury card offers plenty of value. (See rates and fees)
Regions Prestige Visa Signature credit card
Last reviewed: March 26, 2019
There’s not much to recommend this low-earning rewards card besides a few small bonuses for signing up for Regions Bank services.
Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard
Last reviewed: June 12, 2019
With the highest general rewards rate on the market, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard offers a winning combination of value, flexibility and valuable travel perks. This offer is no longer available on our site.
PNC Premier Traveler Visa Signature credit card
Last reviewed: May 20, 2019
A flat 2 percent rate on travel rewards and flexible redemption options make the PNC Premier Traveler Visa Signature card another good option for netting a large number of rewards points for airfare.
Regions Visa Signature Premium credit card
Last reviewed: February 13, 2019
The Regions Visa Signature Premium card offers a unique rewards scheme for Regions Bank customers, but its limited perks and mediocre points value make its high annual fee hard to justify.
Navy Federal More Rewards American Express card
Last reviewed: May 7, 2019
With no annual fee, triple points on supermarket and gas station purchases and a handsome sign-up bonus, the brand-new Navy Federal More Rewards American Express card is an especially good deal for families and business travelers.

Expedia+ Card from Citi
Last reviewed: February 11, 2019
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.
M&T Visa credit card with rewards
Last reviewed: February 22, 2019
A basic, no frills card with limited rewards, the M&T Visa card is a decent choice for balance-carrying cardholders who don’t mind foregoing extra benefits such as car rental insurance or price protection.
BBVA Compass Select credit card
Last reviewed: May 21, 2019
One of our least favorite rewards credit cards, the BBVA Compass Select credit card charges a surprisingly high three figure annual fee in exchange for mediocre rewards and limited benefits.
