Frequent-flier credit card
When you read about actress Angelina Jolie, who recently married longtime beau Brad Pitt, she's usually going to, or returning from, some exotic destination such as Kenya, Cambodia or Malta -- where Jolie and Pitt spent their honeymoon, kids in tow.
But it's not always a vacation for Jolie, who does a lot of charity work with children and in refugee camps all over the world. Although she has slowed down a bit recently, Jolie still is a great candidate for a frequent flier card, which makes accumulating airline miles a priority, even when the tourist is spending money on non-travel expenses. While many travel cards offer one mile or more per dollar spent, some cards also allow their holders to check bags for free.
Jolie says she and Pitt would like to spend their old age traveling the world to visit their children. But whether you're Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Brad and Angelina, or Grandma and Grandpa, it's a good idea to look for a card that saves on transaction fees while visiting abroad.
