Get to know your credit card travel benefits.

There’s nothing like putting your day-to-day life on pause to experience somewhere new. Seeing new places and cultures changes the way you see the world, and travelling with those you care about makes it even more special. It should be a time to explore or unwind with absolutely no stress, but we all know things don’t always go as planned.

Whether you’re jet-setting somewhere far from home or taking a weekend road trip, use your Capital One credit card to book your travel and take advantage of the following benefits1:

Don’t put everything on hold for delayed luggage

Picture this: you’ve carefully packed for the trip of a lifetime. As much as you wanted to fit it all into a carry-on, you couldn’t leave those “just in case” outfits at home. You arrive at your destination, but your luggage doesn’t. Sound familiar? If not, you’re lucky!

Did you know that you can be reimbursed for your delayed luggage? If your checked baggage is delayed while you’re away, you could receive insurance coverage1 of up to $300 per insured person for the purchase of essential items when you fully charge your trip to your Capital One credit card.

Know you’re covered if things go wrong

In the rare situation that you or a family member are seriously injured (or worse) while you’re away, you could be insured1 while travelling on a common carrier (for example, a bus, cruise ship, plane or train) when you charge the full cost of your ticket to your Capital One credit card. Accidents while travelling are uncommon, but it’s good to have coverage just in case.

Get 24/7 assistance while you’re away

It’s difficult to predict the little things that might happen while you’re travelling. With your Capital One credit card, there’s no need to dwell on the “what if”s. You can get help round-the-clock with services1 like medical referrals, emergency cash transfers, lost documents and tickets, lost luggage assistance and legal referrals when travelling outside your own province.

Enjoy your rewards – you earned them

Nothing sweetens a vacation like fewer bills to pay. If your card has rewards like the Capital One Aspire Travel® Platinum Mastercard®, you might be able to redeem for part of your trip. Be sure to check your account before you book your travel.

Remember, you don’t need to hop on a plane or go far from home to escape your routine. Book your staycation with your Capital One credit card and you may still qualify for some travel benefits.

Happy travels!

* If Quick Check pre-approves a card, you can be 100% sure we’ll approve your application as long as:

a. There’s been no change in your credit file information, personal information or financial status from the time you receive your Quick Check results to the time you apply for one of our credit cards;

b. You’re at least the age of majority in the province or territory you live in;

c. Your application isn’t flagged for fraud prevention;

d. You don’t have an existing Capital One account; and

e. You haven’t applied for a Capital One account in the last 30 days or had an account with us that was not in good standing in the last year. In good standing means not past due, over limit, fraudulent, restricted, or part of a consumer credit counselling program or bankruptcy.

In some cases, we may not be able to open an account for you even though your application was approved. This can happen if we’re unable to verify your identity, or you don’t provide the required security funds if you’re approved for a Secured Mastercard®.
