Best Credit cards for Traveling Abroad

We recently were contacted by US News Money and asked if we had an interest in sharing what they had discovered in their research on credit cards and which ones are best for different wants. Look, we both have traveled overseas a bunch and have some firsthand experience in what’s good and what’s not. What’s better, cash back or airline miles?
