In order for the holidays to run smoothly, it is best to plan them well in advance. This involves choosing your destination, knowing what kind of trip you want to undertake (city-trip, nature, relaxation and relaxation, sports, …), pay for transport, provide housing, … This can be a real break- even head for some, and easier for others. And this is where the credit card can help you.
Pay for your plane ticket
In general, Belgians favor the credit card as a means of payment to make an airplane reservation when they decide to go on a trip. Indeed, this concerns more than half of them. However, we note that young people aged 18 to 34 are not yet accustomed to it and thus promote the bank card.
Nevertheless, it is interesting, from an insurance point of view, to release his Visa or his Mastercard. Indeed, depending on the type of travel card, as well as the issuing bank, you benefit from various assistance and insurance, especially in terms of travel. Think for example of insurance interruption or cancellation of luggage as well as health insurance, baggage and flight delay or missed connection.
Book your stay
Just like paying for airline tickets online, young people seem to prefer their credit card at the expense of their credit card when they decide to go on a trip. In fact, only half of them use the latter for this type of expenditure. More than a third of Belgians please it, while only 10% decide to pay in cash.
A large part of credit cards, however, covers housing costs in case of cancellation. Thus, if you must return earlier or worse, must cancel the entire stay, you will be compensated. However, you must generally meet the following condition: have booked all or part of the stay with the card.
Expend on site
Once air tickets and accommodation booked, it’s time to go on a trip, finally! However, on-site daily expenses are a good part of the total budget. The study conducted for Goodbank shows that almost 40% of Belgians favor credit card payments.
And once again, young people aged 18 to 34 are the ones who leave it the least, preferring the bank card and cash settlement. However, it is common for a credit card to offer different insurance related to the world of shopping. You could benefit from a Purchase Assurance, Extended Warranty or Safe Online.
