Capital One launched its most feature-rich travel rewards card last year, but it has been steadily improving. Earlier this month, the card issuer announced three new benefits on the Capital One Venture X Rewards credit card.
This is one of my favorites credit card, and I love these new benefits. Here’s a look at what cardholders now have at their disposal.
1. Access to over 100 additional airport lounges
The Capital One Venture X Rewards credit card already had benefits airport lounge access. Like many premium travel credit cards, it includes a free Priority Pass membership that gives you access to over 1,300 lounges after signing up. It also gives access to Capital One lounges.
Cardholders can now access over 100 Plaza Premium Lounges. These include some Virgin Atlantic flags. Most of the new lounges are international, but there are also several at major US airports. See the full list on the Plaza Premium Lounge page with Capital One Eligible Lounges.
There is no registration required. All you need to access these lounges is your eligible Capital One card, same-day boarding pass, and government-issued ID.
2. 10 miles per $1 on Turo bookings
Turo is the largest carsharing marketplace. If you’ve never used it before, it’s like Airbnb, but with cars instead of houses. Car owners list them on Turo, and renters who need cars can search for listings in their area. The app is easy to use and prices start at $25 per day.
Through May 16, 2023, the Capital One Venture X Rewards credit card earns 10 miles per dollar on Turo bookings. This new rate automatically applies to qualifying purchases.
3. Access to over 100 museums with The Cultivist
The Cultivist is a global arts club. Eligible Capital One cardholders can sign up and receive a free six-month Enthusiast-level membership, which would otherwise cost $40 per month. Registration is available on the Capital One and the Grower Web page.
Membership allows you and up to three guests free access to the museum with The Cultivist partners. It also offers art events designed exclusively for Capital One cardholders and access to on-demand art.
There are over 100 museums available with a membership, although it’s worth mentioning that they’re all in major cities. If you don’t live nearby, digital events are also available.
It’s always nice to see credit card companies add new benefits, and Capital One has done a great job here. Cardholders get two useful new travel perks, and free museum access is a unique feature you don’t see often. It also helps that this is already one of the best travel cards from a value standpoint, so anything extra is just icing on the cake.
