The Choice Privileges Visa Card is a travel rewards card that offers generous bonus points, has no annual fee, and gives cardholders a lot of point earning possibilities. The bonus points alone are enough to result in several free nights at any of the many Choice privileges locations. This can save a great deal of money on a trip while still being able to earn points on that trip. Cardholders are given points for using their card at any of the Choice Privileges locations, for Choice Hotels gift card purchases, and for everyday purchases. Cardholders also receive automatic Elite Gold Status. This status gives cardholders the ability to book their hotels further in advance than usual and point bonuses when points are earned for eligible stays.
The rates are also reasonable. Barclays, the card issuer, gives cardholders one of two APRs based on what the rate is for the day. The APRs are based on the market, which is based on the prime rate. The rates are considered competitive and which is received depends on creditworthiness. The balance transfer APR will be the same as the purchase APR and the cash advance APR is a single rate, but it is also based on creditworthiness. Other than this APR, there is a balance transfer fee and cash advance fee that is a minimum dollar amount or a percentage of the transaction. The card can also be used internationally where Visa is accepted, but a foreign transaction fee is charged, which is a percentage of each transaction.
