“If you travel frequently, a travel rewards credit card can help you earn miles or points that you can redeem for free tickets,” said Beverly Harzog, Consumer Finance Analyst and Credit Card Expert at U.S. News. “Not only can you save money with the right credit card, but you can also have a more pleasant travel experience. Some of the best rewards credit cards offer access to airport lounges, priority boarding, in-flight credits and more.”
