Cons

  • The only thing to desire for this card is a better rewards rate, but there is another Barclaycard travel card that offers 2x rewards and bigger sign-up bonuses for a $89 annual fee.

Verdict

One of the best travel cards. Seriously. Easy miles redeem as a statement credit to erase a whole or a portion of your travel expenses. Miles earn rate up to 2x on gas, travel, and bills, no international transaction fee and no annual fee.

If you want an even greater rewards rate, there is the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard® with 2x miles on everything with a $89 annual fee.
