As stated above the Capital One® Aspire Travel World Elite MasterCard® comes with an insurance package that competes with all the other high
end cards. The card features
your standard travel accident, baggage and car rental insurance that
are found on almost all fee based rewards cards but it also includes
some that are only found on a few select cards. These include, Trip
cancellation which is only offered as a standard feature on four other
travel rewards cards and Travel Medical insurance which only comes standard
on about 50% of the cards in the market.
What is good about this card
This card has many great attributes, the sign up bonus of 40,000
miles when you spend $1,000 on net purchases in the first 3 months after account opening – a value of $400 in travel, the earning ratio of
2 Miles per dollar, no fee to add an authorized user and the whole host
of insurance including trip cancellation.
What is not so good about this
I can only think of one potential downfall to this card, both of which
may not even come into play for many people. The first is that this
card offers no business class lounge access or at least a free membership
into the Priority Pass lounge access program like some of the other
high end cards.
The Capital One® Aspire Travel World Elite MasterCard® is ready to set the standard once again in Canada for travel point credit cards.
With its big bonus, relative low cost, good earning ratio, benefit
package and ability to book travel anywhere, we would have to rate this
card as above average in the high end credit card market. Overall Rewards Canada is super excited to see this card return to its status as a leader rather than a follower.
