The surest sign that the world is starting to open back up is when the travelust returns. After over a year inside, the world seems so much bigger and ready to be explored.  Travel can connect us with experiences we’ve never had, or remind us of where we came from in new, authentic ways. Since the last few months have meant minimal exploration and maximum time at home (unless you count exploring every show on every streaming service in existence), it might be time to start planning the next adventure—and travelers using the United Explorer Card can make every moment of that next trip count.

If you’re a traveler, this card is a huge game-changer—not just because it makes trips so much less stressful, but also because it racks up miles super quickly, which means more trips in your future. The United Explorer Card lets you fly United’s world-class service to over 74 countries, while giving you two miles for every $1 spent on United purchases, and 25% back for  in-flight purchases (oh hello, mid-flight wine). Plus, there’s no foreign transaction fees or blackout dates—because restrictions are not the wanderlust vibe we’re going for here.

And the perks start well before take-off: United Explorer Cardmembers get priority boarding, a free checked bag (terms apply), two one-time passes for the United Club℠ lounge, and even up to $100 Global Entry or TSA PreCheck fee credit. Skip the typical airport lines and arrive at your destination totally stress-free. 

And hey, don’t worry if you’re not totally ready to book your next trip just yet. With the United Explorer Card, your miles never expire, so you can start earning miles now to save up for when you do want to get back out there. Get double the miles on dining—and yes, that includes take-out and delivery services. And when you are ready to get back out there, you’ll earn 2x miles on hotel stays as well.

The world is opening up, which means travel is finally back on the table—and whether you’re looking to travel somewhere new, or reconnect with the people you love, the United Explorer Card can help you get there.
