We are planning a trip to Australia this fall and wanted to apply for a credit card that will give us some miles to use for a ticket with Qantas or maybe other airline. And we wanted to be able to use this card in Australia when make purchases. What can you recommend?

We would recommend you a travel rewards credit card issued by a major bank. First of all, such card will allow you to earn miles on all your purchases and redeem with any airline of your choice without restrictions. The only requirement – your tickets should be bought with this travel rewards card. Secondly, all travel rewards credit cards come with EMV chip technology which guarantees card acceptance abroad and its security. And the last but not the least thing to consider is a foreign transaction fee. Most travel rewards cards come without this fee. For example, Discover doesn’t charge this fee. Having no foreign transaction fee will help you save a lot on purchases abroad.

All credit cards terms, fees and rates mentioned in this article/post are actual on the posting date. See the current products’ Terms & Conditions on the issuing banks' websites.
