My family loves to go on trips together, from plane trips to cruises to cross-country drives and train trips. Is there one credit card we should get that will reward us for all our vacation and travel activities?

If you’re a Westgate cruise and travel enthusiast, you might be thinking of getting a credit card that rewards you for all the travel you book through that particular travel merchant. However, it’s a good idea to look for a card that isn’t co-branded to one specific company. If, as you say, you love doing a variety of different activities, you’ll do well to choose a general travel rewards card that gives you points, miles, or cash back for any travel purchase you make. You can also get a rewards card that will give you a statement credit for any travel that you charge to your credit card. This is great because it doesn’t tie you down to one airline, hotel chain, or another specific brand. When you’re planning your itinerary, that’ll be one less thing you need to take into account.
