Airfare purchases through Capital One Travel continue to earn the standard rate for the respective credit card.

In addition to earning cash back, Capital One Travel purchases can also be eligible for these benefits:

  • Price alerts
  • Price drop protection
  • Cancel your flight for any reason

The platform’s price prediction tools (powered by Hopper) can also help you book upcoming flights at the lowest estimated price. If the itinerary can be found elsewhere at a lower cost, it’s possible to receive a refund for the difference.

Capital One Travel also actively monitors hotel prices from Expedia and competing booking sites to offer lower rates. You can be eligible for a price difference refund if another platform provides a cheaper rate within 24 hours of your booking.

Capital One Travel for Venture and Spark Miles Cardholders

Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card cardholders continue to earn 10x miles on hotels and car rentals through Capital One Travel. Airfare purchases earn 5x miles.

Venture, VentureOne, Spark Miles, and Spark Miles Select cardholders will continue earning 5x miles on hotels and car rentals. However, they continue to earn the base rate for flights.

Redeem Rewards for Capital One Travel Bookings

These credit cards now make it possible to redeem your cash rewards for a travel booking through the booking site. The redemption ratio is 1-to-1 making $1 cash rewards worth $1 in travel bookings.

You might prefer this option if you’re trying to limit your upfront costs, similar to using your rewards as shopping credits at Amazon or PayPal.

However, you may still prefer to pay for your purchase with cash to earn rewards miles. Next, you redeem them as a cash statement credit or cover the purchase to reduce your monthly balance.
