Whether your travel plans include a flight, a hotel stay, a cruise or even camping, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® offers the flexibility you need to pull off your trip for less — or, better yet, for free. Redeeming Arrival Miles is easy: Use your Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® to pay for your travel and redeem your miles for a partial or full statement credit. You'll also get 5% of those miles back every time you redeem, a perk you won't find anywhere else.

Another way the Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® stands out is its rewards rate. You'll earn 2X miles on all purchases, regardless of the category. Plus, the card comes with a great sign-up bonus: Enjoy 70,000 bonus miles after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 90 days.

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® charges no foreign transaction fees and is chip-and-PIN enabled, giving you more security than the new standard chip-and-signature credit cards. It does, however, come with an annual fee of $0 for the first year, then $89. For more information, check out our full review.
