I would like to apologize on making you wait so long for the final two travel credit card matches. Without further delay, let us move on to today’s match of travel credit card match 16: NBC Platinum MasterCard VS RBC British Airways Visa Platinum.

As usual the winner will be decided on in the three categories of what credit card provides the best rewards, which credit card provides the best benefits and which credit card provides the best bonus.

The NBC Platinum MasterCard makes the first move with offering 1.5 points for every $1. With the NBC Platinum MasterCard, the first 11,000 points will give you $100 off travel; 50,000 points will give you $500 off travel and from the 50,000 points, every additional 10,000 points will get $100 off travel.

The RBC British Airways Visa Platinum offers British Airways Miles (BA Miles) which goes towards international travel. For every $1 spent, 1 BA Mile will be earned; whenever you spend on British Airways flights, you can earn double the BA Miles.

The winner is clear; the NBC Platinum MasterCard takes this category.

The travel benefits with the RBC British Airways Visa Platinum include comprehensive insurance which includes 31 day out of province/ country medical insurance, auto rental collision insurance, travel accident insurance, flight delay, insurance, emergency purchase insurance, purchase security and motel burglary insurance.

if you want to apply for your first credit card you should be wise in choosing a better credit card company. You have to consider the interest rate, credit limit, the benefits and rewards you can get from them.
