I signed up for British Airways credit card because I’m planning a nice trip to Europe. But then I found out that no matter how many points you have you still have to pay huge taxes and fees. Are there any credit cards that will allow you to use miles for flights to Europe without paying huge taxes?

You can apply for the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World MasterCard®. It will allow you to earn 2 miles on travel, dining and all other everyday purchases you charge to the card. Plus there is a sign up bonus of 40,000 bonus miles, which you can get after spending $3,000 on purchases within first three months. If you want to redeem miles you simply purchase your tickets and then go to your online account to redeem your miles for your air travel.
