If you’re an avid traveler, you should definitely have a travel rewards credit card. You’ll be able to earn points for travel simply by making purchases using your credit card.
Another perk is that most travel rewards cards also come with travel insurance, which will protect you on your next vacation. Visa offers a select line of cards called Visa Infinite cards, which offer excellent travel rewards programs, travel insurance coverage, and exclusive offers.
Here’s a look at the best credit cards for travel that are also Visa cards:
