My take on the Capital One Premier Collection
There are many programs that offer perks at luxury hotels. Some are operated by credit card companies ( Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts), independent networks for some travel agencies ( Virtuoso), and some hotel programs are operated directly for some travel agencies ( Four Seasons Preferred Partner).
So what’s my take on Capital One Travel’s new premier collection?
- I don’t read too much into curated hotel lists or anything like that, because I think the hotels overlap almost completely with what’s available in other programs. The collection may seem a little smaller than other programs at first, but
- Ability to earn 10x Venture Miles on Capital One Venture X The earnings on these hotel bookings are great. This is a big return and that’s the main reason I consider using this program.
- The problem is, if you’re staying at a hotel belonging to a major hotel group, you’re increasingly seeing hotel groups set up their own programs for luxury travel agents. Hotels typically prioritize these guest upgrades, rates and promotions are often easier to combine than these credit card programs, and so on.
The Capital One Premier Collection is definitely worth knowing and worth checking out if you are staying at a luxury hotel. However, there are many similar programs, and others may offer slightly better perks, larger hotel selections, etc. in many situations.
