Are you a student? If yes, a student credit card.
Go to your bank and ask for one. They'll offer you good rates. Ask for a small limit -- mine's £500 (approx. $750) and make sure you keep up your payments!
If you can, you may want to look into getting an overdraft instead. They're usually a much safer alternative but considered a safety net rather than credit for spending (although you can spend it as you wish, provided you pay it back).

Few 18 can get a card unless they have a parent to cosign or a full time job for at least 6 months. Try the bank you already have an account with as you have some history with them.

A visa from the bank you go to. Never get a credit card from one store like a walmart credit card. Otherwise I would get just a visa from Chase Bank or whatever bank you go to.
