Most people possess an inherent desire to travel the world and explore the unknown. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of the world’s population can afford the costs of travel. With fuel costs near all-time highs and increased security precautions, travel is becoming more and more costly. Savvy travelers who don’t mind living on the cheap can certainly survive and have a good time without spending a fortune in certain countries, however, they still have to pay for their plane ticket. Luckily, several credit card companies now offer travel rewards to consumers for using their credit cards.
