If you are globe-trotting professional or a travel buff, it makes sense to have a travel card. Look for credit cards focused on travel and dedicated to offer benefits associated with or complementary to your travel requirements. But with so many credit cards on offer, it is difficult to choose the right one! It’s important to know which card benefits you the most as a customer. Let’s find out!
Comparing travel cards
For this article, I am going to compare the following four cards: CitiBank Premier Miles Credit Card, American Express Platinum Travel Card, ICICI Jet Airways Coral Credit Card, Jet Airways ICICI Bank Rubyx. I will look at such parameters as associated fees, benefits and conditions and possible annual savings.
Let’s look at how these airline cards fare against each other.

When you take a 360 degrees look at these four cards, you will note that the decision of buying a card is based on benefits, conditions and savings.If you are a frequent flyer and heavy card user, you can stock up some pretty amazing benefits with the American Express Platinum Travel Card. However, if you happen to travel by a specific airline only, you can benefit immensely by taking up the Jet Airways ICICI Rubyx card. In any case, what’s of primary importance is your requirements and spend threshold, if you find the card that meets them the best, go for it!
