The popular 55,000 bonus offer has returned on the RBC Avion Visa Infinite Card, for all cards approved by April 30, 2024. Avion points are some of the most flexible and transferable travel points for casual and frequent travellers. I enjoy the simplicity of redeeming Avion points, whether to purchase a flight ticket at a fixed rate, transfer it to another loyalty program, or use it as statement credit with a simple conversion rate. There is a lot to like here; let’s take a closer look;

Take Away

With a conservative estimate, the 55,000 bonus is worth at least $1100 (using fixed-rate redemption). RBC Avion Visa Infinite Card comes with ultimate redemption flexibility, and I appreciate a card that allows you to earn and burn without the mental gymnastics of complicated redemptions. I am waiting for the next RBC’ Avion to Avios’ transfer bonus promotion to leverage my travel options even further – Qsuites anyone?
