Is the CAPITAL ONE VENTURE ONE card widely accepted?

By: Ken Adkins | Jun 7, 2018

Yes! I used my CapitalOne Ventures to fly to Tokyo for free (from all the points I racked up) and then used it as I backpacked through Asia. Never had a single issue using it for charges or at ATM's!

I just want a card that I can buy things with in UK this summer. Not worried about airfare etc. Also want a card that has no interest for a period of time, no foreign fees and zero interest. What card do you recommend?

If you're traveling aboard, it would be wise to use a credit card with no foreign transaction fees. A few options that also offer 0% intro APR include the Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card and the Bank of America® Travel Rewards Credit Card.

The Capital One Venture card has no foreign transaction fees. I do a lot of foreign travel, and found that foreign transaction fees charged by other credit cards are typically about 3%. This is a most significant benefit for people who travel overseas.

Travel reward credit cards give users the ability to earn free travel. There's nothing better than earning free airline tickets for your vacation or not having to pay for a hotel stay. With the right credit card, you can maximize what you earn and not have to use your cards in any specific way. For example, some credit cards with travel rewards points, allow you to earn points for any purchase you make.  You can maximize what you earn by using your card for all of your purchases during the month. Then, pay off the balance in full during the grace period. You'll earn the most you can in rewards to use towards your next trip without spending a lot on finance charges. That can add up to a significant benefit.

When selecting travel rewards credit cards, there are some things to take into consideration. You will need to consider what the earned points equate to for the offer. Some allow you to earn one or two miles or travel rewards points for each $1 you spent. You may earn more for certain purchases or by using your credit card to book your hotel stay or airline tickets. Some cards offer lucrative bonuses and even free travel that can add up to a free flight with your first few purchases. Look for hidden fees or limitations on how many miles you can earn. The best travel rewards credit cards do not have blackout dates and they allow you to fly using any airline, at any time and even offer benefits like no foreign travel fees. Low APRs and even introductory offers may be available form some of these companies as well.
