Maximize Credit Card Travel Rewards
If you aren't using a credit card for all your expenses, you need to start now! However, I do take back that advise for anyone carrying a balance on their cards. There are so many credit cards that can save you money on your travel expenses, including flights, hotels, airport lounges, foreign currency exchange fees, trip insurance and more. You are really leaving money on the table by not taking full advantage of these credit cards. You could extend your trip of a lifetime with all your savings!
I found this great article by U.S. News & World Report on how find the credit cards that provide the most value and how to utilize the cards to get the max value from them. The only card that is missing is the Capital One Venture card. We get 2 points for every Dollar spent on our Venture card. Points accumulate very quickly in our household. Then, you just login to their website, click on recent travel related charges, and, poof, they disappear!!
