"Throughout the last year, we stayed closely connected to our customers and industry experts," said Lauren Liss, managing vice president, Card at Capital One.

Unlike many airline, hotel, or other travel rewards cards, Venture X offers multiple flexible ways to redeem rewards.

Option to add additional cardholders to share your account and benefits at no extra cost.
Primary cardholders can earn up to 100,000 miles per year for referring friends (up to four referrals per year; 25,000 miles awarded per referral).
One of the hallmarks for Venture X customers is Capital One Travel. The new travel booking experience has innovative features like predictive pricing models and tools to ensure customers get the best offers available. Capital One Travel provides access to thousands of flights, hotels, and rental cars, along with features like free price-drop protection and 24/7 price alert technology. In the coming weeks, Capital One Travel will offer customers the option to freeze the price of a flight and return up to 14 days later to book it.
In addition to Capital One Travel, Venture X cardholders can get unlimited access to Capital One Lounges. Capital One Lounges offer a modern space full of premium amenities that provide visitors with a best-in-class travel experience from the moment they step through the door. This includes an industry-leading food and beverage program focused on locally sourced ingredients, uniquely and sustainably packaged premium grab-and-go selections, and health and wellness amenities including a cycling and a yoga room, and relaxation rooms with eye covers, blankets and other luxury amenities to help you recharge away from the crowds.
"Venture X is the next step on our travel journey, building off of the flexible rewards offered through the Venture product suite to include enhanced earn on travel, along with a wide array of top-tier benefits and redemption options that help customers venture further," Liss added.
Like all Capital One credit cards, the new Venture X card has no minimums for rewards redemptions, no category caps, no blackout dates, no foreign transaction fees, and it comes with the same great digital benefits and features that have made Capital One an innovator in its industry.
