Visa U.S.A. is running a promotion aimed at cardholders traveling to Philadelphia.

From October through next August, Visa customers can get up to 20% off a second night's stay in hotels such as the Warwick and Wyndham Franklin Plaza. Discounts at selected restaurants and stores will also be available.

Customers calling to make reservations or making purchases during their trip must mention the Philadelphia Loves Visa promotion to get the discounts.

Visa International, meanwhile, is posting a slew of adventure travel promotions on its Web site. Travelers can get 50% off a companion ticket, for example, when they book a safari in Africa through Big Five Tours and Expeditions and pay with a Visa card.

Other offers include discounts in Australia's Outback, on sea kayaking trips in British Columbia, and on cruises to Alaska.
