Credit cards which offer airline fee credit will appeal the most to people with wanderlust, or those who need to travel frequently for business. While exclusive credit cards that reward you with credit towards travel aren't a new phenomenon, offers are becoming more generous. There are some air miles credit cards that come with a pretty generous statement credit when you make qualifying air travel purchases. To qualify for these upmarket credit cards, you'll need very good to excellent credit. We at GET.com have rated the following cards as the Best Credit Cards that offer you air travel credit annually in 2017:
