My First Credit Card

I have reached the grand old age of 59 without ever having, wanting or needing a credit card, but I'm going to Australia and New Zealand again soon and really need to get one. When I went last time I was shocked by the amount of bank charges I incurred, so I think a credit card is needed.
I will set up a direct debit to pay each month, but I don't know which is the best one to get. I've looked at the reviews but find myself going round in circles.
Any advice or recommendations gratefully appreciated.
