The Bank of America® Travel Rewards credit card counts as travel everything from airfare, hotel reservations and car rentals to toll fares, tickets to tourist attractions, and rideshare services. Travel-related goods and services must be categorized with an eligible merchant category code to count as a travel purchase. A merchant category code is assigned by the major credit card networks to each purchase based on the merchant’s or service’s line of business.
