Travel Credit Cards are the cards that are tailored for the needs of frequent travelers. These credit cards, by offering benefits like complimentary access to airport lounges, 24×7 concierge service and insurance benefits, not only make the cardholder’s travel experience smoother and more comfortable but also, in most cases, offer a higher reward rate on travel-related spends like flight bookings, hotel reservations, etc. Many travel credit cards earn rewards as AirMiles which can be redeemed for air ticket bookings, award flights (free flights), or class upgrades with partner airlines.

Carry cash more often to save charges and sometimes you don't know if the place you are visiting has the acess
Last year I travelled to Vietnam, I took some cash along with the Card. In my experience Card worked at 99% of the places. My suggestion would be to carry very little cash - like 10% of your overall budget

If you are going somewhere in asia then you can carry some cash but if you are planning to travel Europe or North America. then only rely on the card
