Choosing the right travel reward credit card can be a confusing process. There are so many options and so many variables, and card companies constantly change rewards and sign-up bonuses.

It allows you to search based on various factors, including your own credit score. After you research all the various options, you can instantly apply for the card (s) that are best for you right on the website.

I really like all the editorial content on CardRatings.com, written by real card experts. There is very, very detailed information about each card and the benefits they offer. The information also covers the cost including interest rates and annual fees. Search variables include selecting the best type of card (points, travel rewards, cash back, ). As a travel writer, I focused on travel rewards cards but the website lists all kinds of credit cards, including: student credit cards, no-fee credit cards, no interest credit cards, balance transfer credit cards, secured credit cards, small business credit cards, gas rebate cards, no foreign transaction fee cards and so on. You can search within any of these categories, also introducing other variables like your credit score. You can also search by card issuer, as many companies offer multiple types of cards.
