I recently received a letter from Capital One saying that I will be transferred away from the Capital One Aspire World Travel MasterCard which was discontinued to the new Capital One Aspire Travel World Elite MasterCard instead, sometime before August 16, 2015 where the Capital One Aspire World Travel MasterCard will be deactivated (according to my letter). I was initially told that the Capital One Aspire World Travel MasterCard was going to be grandfathered, but I guess not.
Because of this transfer, I am going to take a deeper look into the benefits of the Capital One Aspire World Travel MasterCard. Below are the benefits that come with it.
These travel benefits are always great to have. They pretty much cover all the travel insurances needed for a vacation:
- Travel Emergency Medical
- Trip Cancellation
- Trip Interruption
- Flight Delay
- Baggage Loss
- Baggage Delay
- Travel Accident Insurance
- Travel Assistance
This helps us cover any car rental insurances:
- Car Rental Collision/Loss Damage Waiver
This is especially useful for every day purchases:
- Price Protection Service
- Extended Warranty
- Purchase Assurance
This is a special one, that was not previously included in the Capital One Aspire World Travel MasterCard. Here is the exact wording:
- World Elite MasterCard Concierge Services
Enjoy access to comprehensive, personalized assistance 365 days a year. Let the World Elite MasterCard Concierge become your single source for all your needs, including special access and privileges, whether you are at home or away. A highly trained and experienced team is always at your fingertips, ready to save you time and make things easier for you. Whether it’s securing dinner reservations, tickets to events, coordinating business arrangements, locating hard-to-find items or booking travel, the World Elite MasterCard Concierge can help bring you the very best whenever you need it. Any costs incurred in connection with these services will be charged to your Capital One card.
Once I receive the new credit card, I am definitely going to take a closer look at this benefit. I am extremely curious to see how good this service will be.
