If you carry a travel rewards card from Capital One, there’s good news: Capital One added two hotel loyalty programs as travel transfer partners, effective on Feb. 4, 2020. Now, in addition to 13 airline partners, cardholders can transfer their miles to Accor Live Limitless (ALL), as well as to Wyndham Rewards.

Capital One also increased its transfer value for JetBlue TrueBlue on Feb. 4. Cardholders can now transfer their miles at a rate of 2:1.5, instead of 2:1. So, for example, if you transfer 1,000 Venture or Spark miles to JetBlue, they will be worth 750 TrueBlue points (instead of 500 points).

To see a full list of Capital One’s current travel transfer partners, as well as which Capital One credit cards offer travel rewards, read on.
