The Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card is a simple, non-flashy, no-fuss travel card. You can redeem this card's points on any travel-related expense anytime, including airlines, hotels, car rentals, cruises, and even as a statement credit. There is no limit to how or where you can use points, no restrictions on brands, and did we mention you can even use them as a statement credit on travel purchases, rather than only being able to redeem them for booking new travel? That's amazing!
You get two miles for every $1 you spend on purchases, every day -- and no, they don't just double the redemption rate to compensate; you are actually getting twice as much value. The points never expire and are unlimited as long as the account remains active (i.e., in semi-regular use and good standing). There are also no foreign transaction fees, although we should point out that most travel cards wave these fees.
The Venture Rewards Card also gets you travel accident insurance, auto rental insurance, 24-hour travel assistance services (including emergency card replacement and a cash advance), extended warranties on purchases, and free, unlimited access to the Capital One Credit Tracker so you can compulsively check what each and every purchase does to your credit ranking the way other people monitor stock prices or football scores.
