When it comes to booking travel, using your credit card is a great way to go. Not only do you accrue travel points for your card, you have the benefit of not having to pay right away for your reservation. For example, if you're booking an expensive hotel, you will still have time to save up before you actually have to make the payment. However, the ideal situation would be to save up for your vacation before you book, so you don't end up in unnecessary debt.
Also, you will have the opportunity to cancel, if need be.
Another added benefit to using your card for travel is the coverage. Most credit cards offer complimentary insurance, trip cancellation and rental car insurance.
