It boils down
Venture X cardholders receive a complimentary subscription to Prior’s global travel guides and newsletters, as well as access to curated luxury vacations.
Prices start at $1,695 for double occupancy. Cardholders can redeem miles with Capital One Entertainment for these trips, though the cost is quite steep, starting at 423,750 miles for two spots on the Savannah trip.
Airline tickets are not included in the travel price, but cardholders can book flights through Capital One Travel and earn 5 miles per dollar.
Additional Prior trips for 2024 will be added soon.
