Our Suggestion

This is a premium-level card that comes in three variants. Selection of variant is not offered to you. The card has a good reward rate and has amazing spend benefits or milestone benefits.

Also, the card offers free priority pass membership and also the membership from Vistara & Trident. Trident membership is something we have tried and can say that the services offered are amazing.

Although it has a high joining fee, it is worth paying if you get membership from such good brands and welcome vouchers from some good companies.
