With travel reward credit cards, you can earn great rewards like free flights, hotel stays, car rentals, and other benefits. There are three categories of travel reward credit cards:

1) Airline Mile Credit Cards are not limited to one airline but can be used to obtain free tickets on over 250 major airlines. These cards also allow you to redeem your earnings towards free hotel stays, car rentals, cash back bonuses, and more.

2) Frequent Flyer Credit Cards enable you to earn frequent flyer miles on your favorite airline or their partners.

3) Travel Reward Credit Cards let you earn free hotel stays and may offer other travel-related benefits, and they may also offer airline miles and frequent flyer miles options.

Some cards require as little as 15,000 points for a free roundtrip ticket, and most let you earn points or miles with your everyday purchases.
