Hui thee,

I would like to know best credit card which offer air miles and free priority pass.

Tried to upgrade my HDFC card but no reply from them after I send them request to upgrade (its been 14 days)
as far as I know Indusind bank no longer provide free priority pass they are charging Rs 5000 per annum w.e.f. 15th Oct 2013.

Any other card worth?

Nothing beats Citi Prestige in terms of being the fastest miles earning card and providing free priority pass for self and supp family members.

SBI Cards PP is valid for 2 years and they don’t renew PP after 2 years.

Can you elaborate by example, How many trips/Amount does one need to make/spend to recover the card fees?

Out of 20k fees, 10k is recovered by taj gift card, and 10k is recovered by 2500 points (equivalent to 10000 miles). Any business class redemption with more than Rs 1/mile helps me recover the fees easily. Plus I combine the this taj gift card with one from amex platinum travel card (10k gift card on spends of 4 lakhs). Also, unlimited priority pass for both domestic and international for self and family is something I value the most.

+Kg for sharing info

It seems that benefits are linked to travel as it is intended to be a travel card.

You may want to check HDFC Infinia or DCB as they too have unlimited lounge access for lesser fees and you can get reversals based on spends.

Hi, yes prestige is mostly a travel based card. I have HDFC DCB as well. I use DCB for 10X transactions, rest on prestige (gives higher miles than DCB on non-10X)

In Infinia and DCB, unlimited lounge access is only for card holder and ad-on card holders whereas CITI is giving unlimited lounge access to all family members.
