A good credit score makes it easier to rent, lower insurance rates, and other issues not related to taking out a loan. Travel without a credit card is not impossible, but much easier with one.

Note that I stated "easier", it is possible to all of the items listed without a credit rating. To me, it just isn't worth the effort to live without credit cards. We don't pay interest. Debt is limited to the cleared but unbilled balances on our credit cards.
