Canadian Travel Credit Card Comparison:
Cashback Credit Cards
 

This chart is part of Rewards Canada's Guide to Choosing a Travel Rewards Credit Card
and is a comparison of all the Cashback travel rewards credit cards in Canada.
Also be sure to visit our new feature: THE ULTIMATE CASH BACK CREDIT CARD PORTFOLIO!
"Technically speaking, a Cashback credit card is not considered to be a Travel Rewards credit card but due to the fact you can apply that cash dividend towards travel makes it only fitting we include these type of cards in our guide"
We also offer the following comparison charts:
