Capital One Travel adds rentals to Premier and Lifestyle collections

US: In a bid to set a “new standard for travel and hospitality”, Capital One is expanding its lodging inventory by adding vacation rentals to its Premier and Lifestyle Collections through Capital One Travel, for the benefit of eligible cardholders.

The “thousands” of properties listed on the platform are currently available in more than 30 US markets and are managed by operators including AvantStay and Boutiq. Additional inventory is expected to be added in the United States and abroad as the company secures more partners such as Key.co and Inspirato, the latter in which Capital One Ventures invested $25 million last August.

The vacation rentals will be listed alongside hotels in Capital One Travel’s Premier and Lifestyle collections, which are described as “premium hospitality” offerings, and will be available to US-based Venture X, Venture X Business. Venture and Spark Miles cardholders when booking through Capital One Travel.

Capital One Travel is powered by Hopper Technology Solutions, formerly known as Hopper Cloud, which previously supplied vacation rental inventory from Expedia vacation rental brand Vrbo until last summer when Expedia Group chose to terminate the partnership with immediate effect. Capital One is an existing investor in Hopper, having invested $96 million in the online travel agency and app in November 2022.

Capital One decided to launch Capital One Travel Vacation Rentals after saying that it had received “positive customer feedback” since the launch of its Premier and Lifestyle collections last year.

Eligible cardholders booking through Capital One Travel Vacation Rentals will be able to experience the following benefits:

  • Unlimited five miles per dollar with every Premier or Lifestyle Collection vacation rental booking, redeemable at a 1:1 rate. Venture X cardholders will also be able to use their $300 annual Capital One Travel credit toward Premier Collection vacation rentals.
  • An experience credit to use toward a wide variety of amenities, such as in-home chef meals, pre-arrival groceries and mid-stay cleaning. Premier Collection bookings come with a $100 experience credit, and Lifestyle Collection bookings come with a $50 experience credit.
  • Professionally managed properties and in-destination concierge service.
  • Early check-in and late checkout when available, as well as complimentary wifi.

 

Capital One Travel said that it wanted to make guests feel “confident” in what they are booking as there can be “many options to weed through” when booking home rental properties.
