Amex Cobalt

I would, but in Canada Amex isnt accepted everywhere...so its not the best primary credit card

Yup I feel your pain. If you value Aeroplan miles then TD Aeroplan Visa infinite. If not, all the bank-program travel Visa cards are pretty similar, although CIBC Aventura has the better perks (priority pass lounge passes, pays for your nexus card, mobile phone insurance) vs. RBC Avion I also really like the — believe it or not — Rogers bank world elite MasterCard. 1.75% cash back on all purchases and 4% cash back on foreign transactions so effectively eliminates the foreign transaction fee. It’s basically the only card I use when I travel.
