On the Road Again ... 
It's once again that time of year when Spring Break is in the air. For some, the respite from the winter doldrums means a trip overseas. For others it means a "staycation" to get the house ready for warmer days.
 
No matter how you take advantage of the upcoming Spring Break season, be sure to be smart when traveling, especially when using your credit cards.
 
In this issue we will provide some ideas for traveling safely and using the best credit cards to provide peace of mind when away from home.
 
Safe Travels!
