Travelling with credit cards

In continued attempts to entice new cardholders, credit card issuers have developed a large variety of credit card offers. Consumers now have access to just about every type of credit card they are looking for; many of which offer rewards. Travel reward credit cards are great for people who travel frequently for business or pleasure. Most credit card issuers allow cardholders to redeem points for hotel stays, airline miles, car rentals, cruises and more. These points are earned every time you use your card to make a purchase.

If you often travel for business, then you probably stay in the same chain of hotels, use the same rental car company and fly on the same airline. Am I right? If so, you could potentially save your company thousands of dollars each year in travel expenses or earn free travel for you or your family. Many issuers have credit card offers that are affinity based with many of the service providers that business travelers frequent. If this is the case - get a travel rewards credit card! With each business trip purchase you earn points, sometimes double points or more, towards free hotel stays, free airline flights, free car rentals and more! If you earn enough points, you can earn a combination of all three for a vacation that has virtually no travel expenses.

If you travel a lot for personal pleasure, then you can probably relate to your business counterparts who also tend to frequent the same hotel chains and airlines. If this is the case, then you should get a travel reward credit card too! By earning points that can offset or even eliminate most of your travel expenses, then you can afford to spend an extra day with family or friends or you even take that extra little trip to visit that “hidden” destination. Either way, you’ll be glad you did because you earned it by making purchases with your travel rewards credit card.

Whether you’re a business traveler or travel for personal pleasure; take advantage of all that credit card issuers have to offer. Travel reward credit cards can give you the flexibility to choose how you’ll be rewarded on your next trip
