How to use NBC Reward Points for travel?

To the point Here is our tutorial to help you use your National Bank credit card NBC Rewards points for travelling.

National Bank Rewards Points

With the National Bank’s World Elite Mastercard®, National Bank World Mastercard and National Bank Platinum Mastercard, you earn NBC Rewards points on every purchase (and with their welcome bonus).

You can use these reward points for any travel purchase: flights, train tickets, rental cars, hotels, Airbnb rentals, etc). The same applies to any booking made through a travel agency such as Expedia.

As soon as you have 10,000 points, you can receive a $100 discount on your next travel reservation through the “Voyage à la carte” agency.

Otherwise, with 12,000 points in your account (a $100 value), you can use them for a travel credit. Then in increments of 11,000 points (or $100) when you redeem more than 55,000 points in the same transaction.

Access the NBC Cardmember Rewards portal

To use your National Bank’s World Elite Mastercard® rewards points, you will need to log in to your NBC Rewards Plan online account. You can click on this link to go directly to this page.

Then select your National Bank credit card.

You can see that the $200 discount was applied in both cases using 20,000 NBC Rewards points.

If you don’t have enough points to cover the entire cost, you can simply supplement with money.

In addition, you will be able to earn additional NBC Rewards points by going through the “Voyage à la carte” agency.

Hotel, car rental and cruise bookings are redirected to third-party supplier websites. Therefore, they are not eligible to earn or redeem points at the rate of 10,000 points = $100, but you can still use your points in the “Get your vacation reimbursed ” manner.

Get your vacation reimbursed with your NBC Rewards points

Once in the “Get your vacation reimbursed” portal, you can calculate the value of your NBC Rewards points for a travel discount and then click on “Redeem”.

The exchange rate is different from the reservations made with the “Voyage à la carte” option.
