Review of the ScotiaGold Passport Visa Card

If you don’t travel frequently, the ScotiaGold Passport Visa Card is not the best card for you. Try one of the other options from Scotia Bank or elsewhere to find one that fits your lifestyle.

If you do, however, you can earn a lot of money with the 5% cash back offer! Unless you rely heavily on trip insurance, this is a good choice for those who enjoy traveling and booking through the Scotia Rewards Travel service.
