Planning a trip? Make sure you have a good credit strategy before you take your next trip.
Your credit card can be a valuable resource with various benefits to help you handle travel complications with ease.
Having a credit card with airport lounge access and useful amenities can be of big help when your flight is delayed.
Trip delay and cancelation protection can reimburse you if there are changes in your trip depending on your card.
If you have a credit card with roadside assistance, it can come in handy if you have a flat tire or run out of gas.
If you have a concierge feature, take advantage by rebooking your flight, making reservations, etc., if you're delayed.
Cell phone insurance on your credit card can cover the cost of replacing or repairing your phone on your trip.
If you get sick or injured during your vacation and have to cut your trip short, your card can cover prepaid costs.
Use a credit card that offers travel protection if you travel often, but ensure you pay back the balance on time.
