I have this love/hate relationship with credit cards. I got my first card in 2006, right around the time I started planning for my first solo trip. Back then, if you want to buy plane tickets from budget airline’s websites, you have to use a credit card. My first purchase was round trip tickets to Singapore via Jetstar Airways, followed by my Tiger Airways tickets to Bangkok. I also used my credit card to pay for my train ticket to Udon Thani in Southern Thailand, when I arranged it with a Bangkok-based travel agent, while still in Manila.
Credit cards come in handy when you and your friends make an impulsive decision to fly to Bangkok to eat
Credit cards played a huge role in my being able to get super cheap fares when I was going crazy going around Southeast Asia. They are also behind every impulse buy, whether in Manila, Hong Kong or Tokyo. These days, however, I’ve been controlling myself from using them. There are plenty more countries I want to visit, and I need some major savings for a lot of them. My will is always put to the test, though, with deals left and right offered by credit card companies, retail shops, and hotels.
