Capital One Venture miles will count for a different number of airline miles after you transfer them, depending on which airline you choose. For example, 2 Venture miles will count for 1.5 Air Canada miles, which is a transfer ratio of 2:1.5. Other airlines will accept miles transfers at a ratio of 2:1 or 1:1.
You can use all major airlines with Capital One Venture. Venture cardholders earn 2 miles per $1 on all purchases including airfare booked with any airline, and they can also use Venture miles to pay for flights on any airline – by booking through Capital One, transferring miles to airline partners, or covering the cost of recent flights. In fact, Venture miles are redeemable for nearly any travel purchase made anywhere. There are no blackout dates and no limits, either.… read full answer
How to Redeem Capital One Venture Miles for Any Airline Purchase
Click the “View Rewards” tab on your account page.
Choose “Book A Trip” to schedule new flights or select “Cover Travel Purchases” to get a statement credit for previous purchases. Alternatively, pick “Convert Rewards” to send miles to an airline loyalty program.
You need 100 Capital One miles for every dollar that a flight costs. Each mile is worth one cent when spent on travel. So, if your flight costs $200, you’ll need 20,000 miles. That’s a pretty standard rate for reward redemption.
Because not all flights are equal (in terms of distance, seating, time of year, etc.), their dollar cost varies a lot. So, credit card companies can’t charge the same number of points or miles for every flight. Instead, they use an exchange rate between their points or miles and the dollar cost of the flight. In this case, it’s 100 Capital One miles for $1 in airfare. And just to be clear, Capital One doesn’t offer any points cards. But miles work the same way.… read full answer
If you don’t have a Capital One miles card yet and are interested in one, there are two good options, the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card and the Capital One VentureOne Rewards Credit Card. Both cards require good or excellent credit, but their terms are a bit different. The Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card gives you 2 miles per $1 on all purchases, with a 60,000 miles initial bonus and a $95 annual fee. The Capital One VentureOne Rewards Credit Card gives you 1.25 miles per $1 on all purchases, with a 20,000 miles initial bonus and $0 annual fee. So, you have to choose between a higher earning rate and fee or a lower earning rate and no fee.
If you do already have a Capital One miles card, you can redeem your miles by logging in to your Capital One account. You can use your points to book travel (flights, hotels, cruises, etc.) or pay for travel expenses after the fact with Capital One’s “purchase eraser” tool. The number of Capital One miles needed to pay for a recent flight will be listed when you select “Redeem Travel Purchases.” You’ll be able to use your miles for any flight from the past 90 days.
