First of all one should solve money issue before going abroad. Buying currency in native city or visiting currency exchange abroad is not an option, as it leads to funds loss. The wisest thing to do is getting a special travel card. Some of the best travel credit cards provide for every card user. It is not only the matter of economy, but safety too.


Bringing in cash is always a big risk. The most common things that happen to travellers who prefer taking real money with them are:

  • robberies,
  • awful currency exchange rates,
  • larger fees,

Whenever someone sees money in tourist’s hands, they already have wily schemes for taking cash away. For sure, there are ways to withdraw cash from credit cards, but when choosing a travel card, customers receive total protection.

Do Not Spend Carelessly And Fall In Debt While Travelling

At least two security levels required for cash withdrawing or completing any other financial operation – a pin code and confirmation via mobile phone.


Reward travel credit cards grant their owners with simple moneyback system. It works easier than ever – pay with card, get % back. Reward amount depends on chosen plan. It usually counts about 5%, that turn in quite a sum by the end of the year.


Together with it, there are hundreds of special offers for getting more points by this program. All offers are placed at special websites where users can freely pic those that fit them best. These offers get updated a few times a day.


No matter what country customers are going to visit – they often get best exchange rates and mostly no additional fees, no matter if they pay with credit cards or prefer withdrawing cash from ATM machines.

If such card gets lost, card holder can easily block it via phone or checking into mobile banking.A few taps or clicks and all funds are safely secured. Even if travel credit card was found before blocking, getting access to funds is nearly impossible, unless card holder avoided all additional security levels.


Among at least a dozen of credit plans available, one can always find something that meets all current needs. Getting awards is not only pleasing. Those who think 5% rewards are too small for being anyhow useful, should take a look at their expenses. Even when spending $1,000 monthly reward travel credit card brings back $50. Those who travel often might save enough money for a trip each year.
