The best PenFed credit card for travel is the PenFed Platinum Rewards card because it gives 5 points per $1 spent on gas purchases paid for at the pump and has no foreign transaction fee. PenFed does not have a more traditional travel credit card, one with extra rewards and benefits for airfare, hotels, etc. But gas is one type of travel expense, especially for people who enjoy road trips.
In the past, PenFed offered the Pathfinder Rewards American Express Card, which was a true travel credit card. It offered 3 points per $1 spent on all travel purchases, a $100 annual air travel credit and more. But PenFed stopped accepting new applications for it in 2019. There’s no indication when, or if, the Pathfinder Rewards card will resume taking new applications.
While none of the PenFed credit cards that are currently available to new applicants are specifically meant for travel, each offers decent travel value because there’s no foreign transaction fee. In addition, all PenFed cards offer an array of travel-related benefits such as travel accident insurance, rental car insurance, roadside assistance and more.
