Canadian Travel Credit Card Comparison:
Hybrid 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 Hybrid travel rewards credit cards in Canada.
"A Hybrid card is a combination of an airline and/or hotel card and a travel points card. You can convert your points to airline or hotel frequent travel programs or use the points to book travel via the credit card's travel agency or with some cards to book travel how you want and then redeem the points against the charge on your account."
We also offer the following comparison charts:
