A travel credit card can save you both time and money. Depending on your needs and preferences, a travel credit card can provide numerous benefits for anyone interested in travel savings. Travel rewards can be used in a variety of ways including on flights, hotels and car rentals.
Decide what kind of rewards you want. Travel credit cards can be general and rewards based (i.e. 1 point per $1 spend with redemption on different airlines, hotel chains, etc.) or brand specific (i.e. WestJet RBC Mastercard where rewards are redeemed for WestJet flights/vacations).
Take Advantage of Perks and Welcome Bonuses. Many travel credit cards offer perks like free checked bags, sign up welcome bonuses and even a complimentary companion ticket.
Use your card. By charging as much as possible to the card (gas, groceries, household bills), you accumulate points faster. Just make sure to pay your balance every month!
