It is expensive to travel. For any travel planning we are always on the lookout for discounts and cashbacks to reduce our costs. But are you aware that you can travel for free? Even though it sounds a bit exaggerated, it is not completely untrue.
We all carry credit cards to our vacations. When on an international trip we all prefer to pay by plastic money to reduce the hassle of carrying cash and making currency conversions. With extended use of plastic money during travel, some banks offer credit cards which are specially meant for people who travel frequently. Since every traveller is different, so are the credit cards and their rewards. These credit cards offer extra miles and specific tie ups with airlines along with discounts on hotel stays, cashbacks and lots of other benefits.
