Introduction:

No dream in the human mind could ever match than the thirst for Travel, the desire to explore, to unravel the unknown. It has been a defining characteristic of human beings to traverse the earth and to find out new places and make it their home. Centuries later, the thirst for Travel has not dissipated. Rather, thanks to the modern means of transport and communication, it has become quite possible to go all over the country, or even the world, in a matter of a few hours. The world, it would be safe to say, has become a smaller place.


Necessity of Credit Cards:

It is quite obvious that Travel the world doesn't come for free, and ordinarily, it costs a lot of planning and involves a lot of money. Travel with a large sum of money is inadvisable since it can (and does) involve a lot of stress, distracting you from the pleasantries of the trip that you have undertaken. Not only does the worry of having sufficient money gnaw at the back of your mind but also the danger of losing the money that you are carrying might spoil the very purpose of the trip itself.

Thankfully, credit cards have come to us as a blessing and in today͍s era they are making the habit of carrying hard currency an admittedly obsolete practice. Essentially, they are plastic cards which contain an attached microchip. The microchip in question is linked to your bank account in a digital medium. Whenever you swipe your card to make a transaction, the bank basically loans the amount of transaction to you. The total amount that has been loaned to you over the period of a month has to repaid to the bank in a specified time period. This is a tool of great convenience since it enables you to purchase any product or service and you need not worry about not having enough money again.


Credit Cards for Travel:

Usually, banks have differentiated credit cards for different uses. Hence, credit cards assigned to a particular purpose will have features and benefits that pertain to the use to which they have been put. One of the most widely sought after type of credit cards belong to those that are related with Travel. These credit cards for Travel have specific features and Travel that benefit the cardholder whenever they are using it to Travel from one place to the next. These features will vary not only between cards issued from different banks but also between cards issued from the same bank. Occasionally, such Travel credit cards can be co-branded cards too, meaning that their services can be paired up with the services of other companies that are involved in the business of tourism and Travels. This provides a further incentive to those who might wish to consider owning a Travel credit card in their possession.

Most of the major banks in India offer their own Travel oriented credit cards to customers, with their own sets of welcome gifts, features and benefits.


Travel to Howrah or Anywhere Else:

Now that you know the benefits of credit cards when they have been specifically designed to match your Travel requirements, you can Travel to any place in the world. Be it Howrah or Glasgow, now you can go anywhere without having to worry about carrying any money because your bank itself will go with you and it would remain in your wallet, at your own disposal as and when you would require it to pay off your Travel expenses and for availing the products and services for anything else.

  • We love the 1+1 movie offer from bookmyshow™. It also helps that you can book tickets any day of the week.

  • One drawback we noticed is that if you are frequent traveller, 2 free visits to a Domestic Airport lounge may not be enough
  • Start playing Golf! – it's a high point for the credit card, but if you are not a golfer, this feature might be lost on you2
