If you’re a cardholder of the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card or the Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card, your travel rewards options just got a little bit more flexible.

Capital One announced on Dec. 10, 2018, that cardholders can start transferring their Venture miles to 14 travel loyalty programs. This travel rewards benefit was first announced in November 2018, but Capital One added two new airlines to its rewards transfer partner program when it rolled it out: Emirates and Singapore Airlines.

The addition of these 14 travel loyalty program transfer partners give more mileage flexibility to travelers, who can now choose to use their points as cash back, or put them directly toward flights with their favorite airlines. Because all three airline alliances are represented, it’s possible to apply airline miles to both domestic and international award flights — but your mileage may vary based on how you use them.

Miles can be transferred to the original 12 airlines at a rate of 2 Venture miles to 1.5 airline miles, and cardholders can earn up to 1.5 airline miles on every dollar they spend with their Venture card. Venture customers will continue to be able to redeem their miles with no blackout dates on all travel purchases (flights, hotels, rental cars, cruises, etc.).

But for Emirates (Emirates Skywards) and Singapore Airlines (KrisFlyer), Venture miles can be transferred at a rate of 2 Venture miles to 1 airline mile.

The 14 loyalty program transfer partners are:

  • Aeromexico Club Premier
  • Air Canada Aeroplan
  • Air France/KLM Flying Blue
  • Alitalia MilleMiglia
  • Avianca LifeMiles
  • Cathay Pacific Asia Miles
  • Emirates
  • Etihad Airways Guest
  • EVA Air Infinity MileageLands
  • Finnair Plus
  • Hainan Airlines Fortune Wings Club
  • Qantas Frequent Flyer
  • Qatar Airways Privilege Club
  • Singapore Airlines

This rewards transfer benefit is also an option for cardholders of the Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business and the Capital One® Spark® Miles Select for Business.
