Our Suggestion

We recommend this card only if you keep this as your secondary card because there is no worth in keeping this as the primary card.

As the offers and services provided by this card being a premium card are not really impressive. It did not even offer international lounge access after charging Rs.3000 as a membership fee.

The best reward you will get on using this against online shopping and travel booking.

Strength-Weakness

Strength Weakness

Bottom Line

Many private sector banks have provided a variety of credit cards in the market with tremendous service. But this is the first such card provided by a public sector bank with such good service.

It is undoubtedly the finest premium card provided by the Bank of Baroda. You can apply for this without giving it any second thought.
