Comparing Canadian Travel Rewards Cards (No Annual Fee)

Comparing Canadian Travel Rewards Cards

Lately, it seems that banks have either discontinued or upgraded their best no-fee credit cards. Now, all the worthwhile perks require an annual investment. Although, in many cases, the benefits outweigh the fee, first-time credit card holders and low spenders might prefer something free. With so few to choose from, we’ve highlighted four credit cards from the travel category deserving of your attention.

Remember that many premium credit cards offer entrance promotions, meaning you can offset that annual fee in bonus rewards and other cash incentives. However, regardless the allure, conduct your due diligence before settling on any one card.
