About - Barclays Travel Community

What is Barclays Travel Community

We're your new favorite source for sharing travel stories and first-hand experiences. Learn more about where you'll be traveling or just gather ideas from the community for your next adventure. Plus, you can earn miles for your community activity.

This travel community is like nothing you've ever experienced. You can earn miles for participating while connecting with like-minded travelers from all over the U.S. We keep it real with kudos so you can rate what you read. You'll also earn profile badges specific to your stories so you can find fellow travelers with similar interests. 

Don't forget, the community is constantly adding new stories so if you don't see the right source for you right now, keep checking back.

Participation Miles

Earn Participation Miles for your community activity, such as posting a story with a photo or having your story "kudoed" by other registered members. You can redeem your miles for travel rewards if you are a Barclays Arrival® World Mastercard®, Barclays Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard®, or Barclays Arrival® Premier World Elite Mastercard® cardmember or if you are not a cardmember, you can redeem for a $5 eGiftcard from a select list of four major retailers.

You'll receive email alerts for each action that earns you miles, as well as a monthly newsletter and summary of your Participation Miles activity. All the miles you've earned to date will show on your travel profile.

If you're a cardmember, once you link your Barclays Arrival, Barclays Arrival Plus, or Barclays Arrival Premier account to your Travel Community profile, any miles you earn will be transferred to your Barclays Arrival, Barclays Arrival Plus, or Barclays Arrival Premier account each month. You'll see they are referenced as Participation Miles on your statements. If you're not a cardmember, every 2,500 miles earned will result in an automatic redemption for $5 of value in the form of an eGiftcard from a select list of four major retailers (subject to change at any time, without notice).

Travel Stories

It's fast and easy for you to create a story, upload a photo and earn miles. Simply tell us where you went, then add photos and details like how you got there and where you ate. It's that simple!

Travel profile

How do you like to travel? Completing a basic profile about yourself tells other community members where you're from and how you like to travel, and will earn you 500 Participation Miles! With just a few basic details, you can get to know your community members and connect on all the travel styles that you prefer, whether it be outdoor adventures or luxury getaways.
