There are hundreds of choices for credit cards that allow you to earn travel rewards. There are cards that give point bonuses for every dollar earned, cards that give huge sign-up bonuses, and even co-branded airline or hotel cards that allow you to earn more with specific travel alliances.

Ready for it?
Last year, I went to Paris for 10 days with a carry-on and a handbag.

And the best part about all this? You can absolutely manage it, too.
