What are the best credit cards to bring on vacation?

Postby andy1088 » Wed May 23, 2012 9:44 am

Going cross country on Tuesday for a week (come back Tuesday the 5th). I am thinking to bring my Chase Debit card (of course if I need cash plenty of ATMs near my resort), BOA cash rewards for gas (3%), Discover because I'll be doing lots of dining out (5%) and Citi platinum select because I got a 15% Hertz discount for bringing it. I'll be leaving Capital one at home because horrible credit line and through the roof interest as well as Chase Freedom, because I won't be grocery shopping or going to the movies and that is the only card I don't have 0% interest on. Do you guys think this is smart? :confused:
My cards
Chase-Sapphire-$5,000 Freedom-$3,000, Amazon rewards-$700, Slate-$600
Citi- Diamond Preferred-$4,000, Thank you-$2,500
Discover IT-$2,500
Bank of America cash rewards-$2,000
Capital one newcomer rewards-$500

OK If there will be Chase ATMs at the resort, if not I'd take whatever cash you may need and have the debit card as a backup.

I'd recommend getting a debit card that will reimburse your out-of-network ATM expenses, like the Fidelity debit card.

Have a great trip!

Thank you! Yes, there are ATMS all over the city I'm staying in. From the airport to my resort there has to be at least 6-7 Chase banks.
