Stay Safe While Traveling - Infographic, Upgraded Points

It’s mentioned in the infographic about using credit cards over debit cards as they give you a lot more protection and insurance. This is a key point. For example, if you lose your debit card someone could spend all of your available cash whereas with a credit card they can’t access the money in your checking account.

Also, products like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card offer multiple trip protection benefits, such as trip cancellation/trip interruption insurance, trip delay reimbursement, lost luggage reimbursement and baggage delay insurance. You won’t find this level of security with a debit card, so make sure you take cash and a credit card, leave your debit card at home!
