CardHub today released its list of the Best Travel Credit Cards for 2013 , selected from more than 1,000 different offers, in order to help consumers save as winter vacation planning gets into full swing in advance of the busy holiday season.

With nearly 60% of consumers expected to take a vacation this holiday season and the price of both airfare and lodging higher than last year, it’s clear that we could all use a few hundred extra dollars during this expensive time of the year. The right credit card offers just that, thanks to historically lucrative initial rewards bonus and 0% financing deals, but taking advantage of such perks this winter necessitates starting the application process as soon as possible.

You can find a quick summary of CardHub’s choices for 2013’s Best Winter Travel Credit Cards listed below. More information about each card offer as well as additional money-saving travel tips can be found here: http://www.cardhub.com/best-travel-credit-cards/ .

Reduce Your Existing Debt Burden:

“The holiday season is always one of the most expensive times of the year, with consumers shelling out money for gifts, food, decorations, travel, and hosting duties,” said Odysseas Papadimitriou, CEO of the leading personal finance websites CardHub and WalletHub. “That’s why we typically see people rack up large amounts of credit card debt during the fourth quarter of the year, before turning their attention to paying off amounts owed during the first few months of the New Year with the aid of annual salary bonuses, tax refund checks, and clean-slate motivations. But why wait? If you have good or excellent credit, you can minimize your holiday-based credit card balance as well as avoid interest for more than a year by leveraging one of the extremely lucrative credit cards deals that is currently on the market. And if your credit isn’t in tip-top shape, you can give yourself the gift of cost-effective credit building by opening a secured credit card, spending responsibly, and always making on-time monthly payments. In short, putting the right credit card on your wish list this holiday season will help you set the table for a financially successful 2014.”
