Our Rating:
Annual Fee Interest Rate Balance Transfer Cash Advance Credit Score Good: -- I've had a credit card, or loan for 6+ years. I've had good credit for the last 7 years (no bankruptcies or no defaults on credit as a result of failing to pay debts back to creditors). I haven't opened a new credit card account, loan, or line of credit in the last nine months. I've made the minimum payments on my existing credit cards for the past three months. Rewards Are all rewards created equal? -- From points, to miles, to cash back - how do you know how much you're really getting? To help you find the best rewards card, we've created the Your Reward Return, a rate that lets you know the rate of return from your spending into rewards so that you can compare like for like. Now that's wise thinking!

RateSupermarket.ca's Review

Enjoy one of the most flexible travel programs around, complete with extensive built-in travel insurance coverage; RBC's top travel tier offers the ultimate in booking flexibility, a wide choice of redemption options, and fantastic insurance add-ons. New cardholders will receive a 25,000 bonus point gift, which is the equivalent of a short-haul flight + you'll pay no annual fee for the first year. This card will benefit frequent travellers - you'll earn 25% more points on any travel-related purchases, and points can also be used to pay for additional travel fees and taxes - a feature not often offered by travel credit cards.
