Make sure you have an account set up with the provider (car rental/hotel/airline) that you are booking travel with before you book with CapOne.

I just don't see the appeal of the price match anymore. Even if you're successful you still have to pay the higher price up front today and end up with portal credit, where in the future you might have to do the price match again and just keep kicking those dollars down the road.

Yes, it's not very appealing. I will most likely downgrade this card to Venture One next year.

Would Venture One be any more appealing? I'm not familiar with it.

Yes, it has no AF, and allows you to transfer to partners. Other than that, it's useless.

Just a warning / FYI - while scanning through dozens of local non-chain hotels in Canada, I noticed that Capital One portal is charging roughly the same price in US dollars as the hotel lists in Canadian dollars on their website. Expedia, hotels.com and others are charging the correct price. I was able to call Capital One Travel and book using the lower price. Either their fx transalation online is broken or its some bug equating USD to CAD.

any thoughts as to why a hotel would be showing up as available to book in all the travel booking sites (hopper, booking.com, expedia, orbitz, etc) but not available in any of the credit card travel portals such as C1, AMEX, Citi?
