My friend told me she got a credit card that automatically made her a member of a special travel club. Do you know how I can do that, too? I want to be in the club!

There are many credit card rewards programs that bill themselves as “travel clubs,” but the truth is, they aren’t exclusive and they aren’t hard to join. The Westgate travel club, for example, is simply the rewards program tied to their specific credit card; it’s not really a special club that you can’t join. All you have to do is apply for their credit card. The advantages of being in one of these credit card rewards travel clubs is that you’ll be able to earn points or miles, and possibly take advantage of other perks too, such as access to VIP lounges in airports, free bag check, and priority boarding. When you’re in the market for a travel rewards credit card, look for benefits like these, and soon you’ll be the one bragging to your friend about your special travel club member status.
