There’s a wide variety of Chase credit cards, mostly designed for people with great credit history and credit scores.

Chase also offers three business credit cards for small business owners under the Chase Ink Business brand.

For Travel Rewards

These cards do not have foreign transaction fees, which should be expected on travel credit cards with an annual fee. These cards earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points. They’re typically most valuable when you redeem points for travel purchases through Chase’s Ultimate Rewards portal or a point transfer to a partner travel program, like hotel loyalty programs. Each card has an opportunity to earn bonus points for spending a certain amount on the card within the first few months of account opening.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

This popular metal travel card earns 2 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent on restaurant and travel purchases.
