Each card comes with a wealth of benefits such as travel accident insurance, roadside assistance, extended warranty protection and more. Neither card charges a foreign transaction fee. So you can use either card for purchases abroad without having to pay a surcharge.
At the end of the day, Capital One Venture is the obvious choice for frequent travelers. But if you’re a big spender on dining and entertainment and don’t travel much, then go with the Savor card.
