Best Travel Credit Cards for Travel Lovers

I’ll admit that I’ve known travel credit cards existed for a long time, but didn’t know much about them. The only thing I knew was that you earned points for travel related purchases, but I also knew that most travel credit cards also had a yearly fee.

Sure, I travel more than your average Joe, but I still only travel two or three times a year. I didn’t think it would be enough to make travel credit cards worth it. However, the other day I sat down and did the math, comparing a total of 33 different travel credit cards with the credit card I had been using in the past and discovered that I was very wrong.

Pretty soon, I’ll have my first place of my own (I’ve moved out before, but I was always in some sort of dorm), and I’m super excited to buy all the furniture, decor, and everything else that goes with getting your own place.
