I filed bankruptcy 3 years ago. I have a credit card with a $750 limit. My credit score is 700. My annual income is $ 70,000. I have $300,000 in a 401K and I have a home. I need a decent limit to travel. How can I increase my limit for traveling? I pay my balance every month, but can't seem to get my limit raised.

You can ask your credit card issuer for a credit limit increase. Or you can apply for a credit card with travel rewards. Since you have a good credit history now, you will probably be given a higher credit limit than you currently have. Plus you will be able to earn rewards for your travels.
