Our Review

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard carries its weight in the travel reward credit card world. That's because it's not branded by one particular airline or hotel chain, leaving you to roam freely throughout the world as you redeem your travel purchase points.

While more experienced travelers—or those looking for good deals on luxury offerings—might be more willing to comb through the fine print of award travel options, you don't have to with this card. All you have to do is remember to use it when you make a purchase and watch those miles pile up.

That's right, there are no restrictive categories to keep track of. You can use your miles to pay off travel purchase charges including travel agencies and websites, airlines, hotels, car rentals and ground transportation, trains, cruises and ferries, timeshares, and campgrounds. So whether you are looking for a budget weekend getaway or a longer, luxurious stay, this card will come in handy.

Highlights
  • Limited Time Offer: Enjoy 70,000 bonus miles after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 90 days 
  • Earn unlimited 2X miles on every purchase
  • Book travel your way—no airline, seat or hotel restrictions—and redeem your miles for travel statement credits
  • Get 5% miles back to use toward your next redemption, every time you redeem
  • No foreign transaction fees 
  • International Chip and PIN for use at self-service chip terminals around the world
  • Miles don’t expire as long as your account is open, active and in good standing
