The Ultimate Guide to Credit Card & Loyalty Programs for the All Inclusive Vacationer

Here's an excerpt of this new guide we released on Rewards Canada today:

As Canadians we know what it’s like to live with long, drawn out winters. We dread the short daylight hours and the biting wind. So how do we as a nation battle the season we look forward to before Christmas but are sick of by the first week of January? We travel. We travel to warmer sun drenched locales and for many of us that means an all inclusive vacation. Canadian winters and all inclusive vacations go hand in hand. However, when it comes to travel loyalty programs and credit cards, all inclusive vacations are neglected. Have you ever seen a credit card ad detailing an all inclusive vacation? No, it’s almost always flights and to a lesser extend hotel stays. That’s because we've been trained to think that credit card and travel reward programs are just for flights. And we're trained that way because that's what most programs used to be. Think about it, you ask any Canadian on the street to name a travel reward program and you're almost guaranteed you'll only hear Aeroplan or AIR MILES. Not much else. And while those two are coalition programs offering a slew of rewards, they are synonymous with flights and merchandise. And while those are rewards many people do strive for, you can 't just redeem for a flight on an all-inclusive vacation, so many Canadians tend to just save up and buy the vacation while continuing to try to earn enough points or miles just for other flights. So we're here to dispel the notion that travel loyalty programs are for flights primarily and show you how to make the most of them to help you save on all inclusives or even to get them for free.
