Booking travel usually involves spending a lot of money, and if you travel often you probably spend some time looking for ways to save.
Searching for good deals on flights or taking advantage of discounts are the usual first steps. But one of the easiest ways to save money on travel is by using a cashback credit card to pay for your travel bookings.
Some credit cards in Singapore let you earn up to 5% cashback for travel bookings, and a card like this can be a strong asset, even if you only travel occasionally. Some credit cards may also give you cashback for overseas purchases.
If you spend a lot of time and money outside of Singapore, then a card that lets you earn high cashback on overseas spending is a big plus, because the cashback you earn can offset the foreign currency transaction fees you pay when using your credit card in other countries.
On the flip side, if you don't travel very often you may want to consider an all-round cashback credit card.
But if you love travelling and saving with cashback, then check out GET.com's pick of the best credit cards for cashback-conscious travellers.
