A comparison of some of the Canadian Travel Anywhere rewards credit cards.
ie. booking travel via the credit cards travel agency or as with some cards any travel provider
Some things to consider:
1. This chart only compares the rewards aspect of these credit cards, for a comparison of benefits, interest rates, etc please see our Canadian Travel Credit Card Comparison Charts
2. We do not take into account any accelerated point earning opportunities, all amounts are based on the basic card earning amount
3. Some cards have annual fees while others do not, again see the chart linked in point #1.
4. Some of the cards have set levels to redeem for a ticket while others allow you to use the points as partial payment to any ticket with you paying the remaining amount
5. Some cards will let redeem points for the full amount of the ticket include all fees and taxes while others will only cover the flight portion and you have to pay the associated fees and taxes.
6. Some rewards have a minimum 14 day advance purchase requirement
