The Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card is one of our top-rated travel cards which don’t charge an annual fee. The card pays a strong 1.25 miles per dollar spent, which is among the best rewards rate offered on a no-fee travel card. Perhaps most attractive is the flexibility cardholders have when redeeming rewards for travel.
There are no blackout dates, and miles do not expire, allowing cardholders to use their rewards in the manner and time of their choice. Cardholders can book travel through any booking engine or travel agent when redeeming miles, and can even redeem miles to partially pay for flights or other travel costs, with the balance of the price paid for in cash. This can allow those who don’t spend a massive amount of money on their credit cards to still use their rewards regularly to receive real value.
The Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card also offers a nice introductory thank you bonus. New cardholders who spend $1,000 total during the first three months will earn a 20,000 mile bonus, which can either be used to pay for a free flight, or simply to pay for part of a flight or a hotel stay. The approximate value of the bonus is $200, which is not bad for a card charging no annual fee. As a final benefit to new cardholders, the card also offers 0% intro APR on purchases until 12 months.
Summary: The Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card is one of our top rated no-fee travel rewards cards, and we recommend it to those who want a travel rewards card, but do not spend enough money each year on their cards to justify a card which charges a fee, but may pay a higher rewards rate.
