Travel credit card rewards are best if you're looking to earn rewards that can be redeemed to cover all kinds of travel expenses. This includes airfare, hotels, car rentals, cruises and even smaller purchases such as tolls and parking fees.

The most popular travel rewards credit cards are the ones that earn flexible travel rewards that can be transferred to airline, hotel, and other loyalty programs. This gives your rewards significantly higher value and gives you a lot more ways to redeem your hard earned rewards.

There's only a handful of travel rewards cards to choose from in the UK with American Express Membership Rewards and HSBC Premier Rewards being the best two options.
