I was traveling with British Airways and noticed that they offer a credit card. I don’t travel much, maybe once a year. Do you think it is wise applying for the British Airways card?

As you have told that you do not travel a lot with British Airways it may be difficult to earn enough Avios with their card to redeem for a reward ticket. The classic British Airways card only earns you 1 Avios per pound, which will have your Avios racking up extra slowly.
You may consider travel rewards credit card to earn miles for your future travel, for example, Discover it Miles. You will earn 1.5x miles on all purchases and will be able to redeem earned miles for airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals and other travel expenses. What is more, Discover will match all the miles you’ve earned at the end of your first year (provided you are a new cardmember). If you’re going to travel abroad, it is important to mention that this card has no foreign transaction fee. There is also no annual fee, so you won’t overpay for your miles earning.
