Although Credit Card Insider does receive compensation from some card issuers as advertisers, this does not in any way influence our judgement of a card in our reviews.  Learn more about how we rate credit and charge cards.

The Travelocity Rewards® American Express Card is issued by Barclaycard and provides points for eligible Travelocity purchases.  It can be used anywhere American Express is accepted. Cardholders can also earn up to 10,000 bonus points, and won’t have to worry about an annual fee.

The Rewards

You’ll earn 3 points for eligible purchases from Travelocity, and 1 point for all other purchases. The following types of purchases are eligible for 3 points:

  • Flights
  • Flight and Hotel Packages
  • Good Buy & Top Secret Hotels

Up to 10,000 bonus points can also be earned. 5,000 points will be awarded after the very first purchase, and another 5,000 will be awarded if $1,000 is spent on purchases within the first 90 days after account opening. Points can be redeemed for statement credits, gift cards, or merchandise.

The more points you redeem, the higher the value of your points will be. 10,000 points is the equivalent of a $100 statement credit, for example, but 20,000 points will earn you a $400 statement credit. For only double the points, you get four times the reward.

The Bottom Line

This is a card to consider if you often use Travelocity to book your trips. Combining the introductory bonus points with the 3 point award could be a good way to get a substantial discount on travel.

There isn’t much to this card besides the Travelocity reward points. If you’d like to look at some cards designed for airline travel that have more comprehensive rewards and benefits, check out our picks for the best airline credit cards.
