Spring break season may be on its way out, but summer travel deals are already springing up online.
You can make your travel miles work for you by signing up for a travel rewards credit card if you haven’t already. The tricky part is picking your way through hundreds of options available.
NextAdvisor.com has done part of the work for you, independently analysing the biggest cards in travel rewards to find out how rewarding they really are.
“Sometimes this value can be murky because rewards are given in points or miles, but placing a numerical reward value on each credit card can help users compare the cards side-by-side,” said Tasha Lockyer, senior editor at NextAdvisor.
Analysts factored in the cost of hooking hotels and flights at different times of the year with each card’s rewards program. They included peak dates and offpeak dates as well and based the final reward value on how much travellers would earn after spending $100.
