Best Delta credit cards for 2021

  Best Delta credit cards for 2021 If you're a longtime Delta loyalist, or if you're considering flying the airline more often, it's worth understanding which Delta credit cards will serve you best.As vaccines roll out across the country, you may be starting to think about flying again, and Delta has been a strong performer in recent years. The airline led the way in blocking middle seats to ensure social distancing during the pandemic, and has been widely revered for its best-in-class seatback entertainment screens (with free content for all), ample power ports on most jets and Wi-Fi on the majority of its flights.

With temperatures rising, vaccines rolling out, and international borders reopening, the pent-up demand for travel is taking off this summer. But that doesn't come without its complications. In an effort to help young travelers starved for adventure, Contiki, a company specializing in group trips for 18- to 35-year-olds, has launched its new Contiki Travel Lounge.

This private, members-only Facebook group and email list is free to join and grants exclusive access to special perks designed to help these young adult explorers navigate the sometimes murky waters of travel in 2021. Among the benefits of joining this group is getting first dibs on the limited spots available on Contiki's Europe trips departing this summer. As the company adds new dates and itineraries to its roster, Travel Lounge members will be the first to know about these "trip drops."

These are Europe's most beautiful castles

  These are Europe's most beautiful castles Europe is peppered with incredible castles, spanning a variety of eras and architectural styles. From Sleeping Beauty's castle come to life in Germany to a spooky Dracula castle in Romania, these structures are filled with mystery and myth, and have captured people's attention for centuries. Hidden in mountains, perched on hillsides and nestled on lakes, these are the best castles in Europe.

For those who are a bit more flexible and looking to add another element of adventure to their travels, Contiki also offers Travel Lounge members exclusive discounts on mystery trips. These trips are selected from Contiki's most popular itineraries, but guests won't know where they're going until after they book. All they'll have to decide are dates, price, and a basic idea of the trip's vibe. With discounts up to 40% off, the risk may be worth it.

Another benefit of membership: regular giveaways with Contiki swag items like the company's signature sustainable water bottles, Teemill T-shirts, and tote bags.

"And although anybody can book online now for a 2022 trip, the Contiki Travel Lounge provides an alternative for those wanting to get back on the road as soon as possible in 2021, and the mystery trips are there for the most adventurous travelers who are happy to take advantage of an exclusive deal while also being the first out there - wherever that may take them."
